As fiduciary advisors, Laurel Wealth Planning values transparency and trust. So we don’t want you to just take our word for it that we always have your best interests in mind.
Two independent rating groups have given Laurel Wealth Planning or its advisors five stars as wealth managers.
Laurel Wealth Planning receives five stars from Investor.com. Only 68 Minnesota firms have this highest possible rating. This puts LWP among Investor.com’s Top Firms in Minnesota for 2020.
Investor.com is a consumer advocacy project founded in 2018. It aims to help Americans research and compare financial advisors to avoid conflicts of interest. The White House Council of Economic Advisers estimated the annual cost of conflicted investment advice to be about $17 billion.
The “trust algorithm” built by Investor.com assesses every financial advisory firm in the United States based on many variables. It uses data from Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) filings.
