MADISON, CT, February 21, 2019 – Principle Wealth Partners today announced that Robert Paolucci, founder and Chief Executive Officer, has been ranked 22nd out of 100 of Connecticut’s top wealth advisors. The Forbes ranking of “Best-In-State Wealth Advisors” from across the country was developed by SHOOK Research, a world-renowned wealth advisor research organization. The top advisor selection is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings with each advisor along with an assessment of each firm’s data related to client retention, industry experience, compliance rating, firm nominations, assets under management and revenue generated. This qualitative and quantitative evaluation is a major component of the ranking algorithm.

“It’s an honor to be ranked among the best advisors in the field,” said Paolucci, “but the greatest recognition comes from our clients who have entrusted our guidance in helping them and their families to realize their investment and wealth management goals.”

The findings of the aforementioned study revealed that clients are oftentimes better served by local advisors—those with an affinity for local people and priorities—rather than nationwide firms targeting much broader markets. According to R.J Shook, president and founder of SHOOK Research, the analysis revealed that “the very best advisors are laser focused on having a positive impact on their clients’ lives.”

Case in point, Principle Wealth Partners was created by a local team of seasoned CFP® professionals who recognized the crucial need for an independent, holistic approach to wealth management encompassing every aspect of a client’s financial life—including investments, taxes, wealth accumulation, cash flow generation, insurance, and estate planning. “Our passion is providing consultative advice, while bringing to light and managing through the behavioral factors that can influence clients’ investment decisions and sometimes adversely impact their ability to meet their long-term goals,” said Paolucci.
