The Financial Times Top 400 Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced by the Financial Times (March, 2016) that recognizes top financial advisors at traditional broker-dealer firms across the U.S. The FT 400 is based on data gathered from firms and verified by broker-dealer home offices, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflects each advisor’s performance in six primary areas, including assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, experience, credentials and accessibility as identified by the FT. Neither the brokerages nor the advisors pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 400.

“We congratulate Peter for earning this prestigious recognition for the second consecutive year,” said Bryan S. Cram, President, Private Client Group, BB&T Scott & Stringfellow. “His inclusion in the FT 400 listing is a reflection of his tremendous work ethic and unwavering commitment to his clients.”
