July 30, 2020 – Resonant Capital Advisors, a wealth management firm based in Madison, Wisconsin, has been named to the 2020 edition of the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.

This is the seventh annual FT 300 list, produced independently by Ignites Research, a division of Money-Media, Inc., on behalf of the Financial Times. Ignites Research provides business intelligence on investment management.

RIA firms applied for consideration, having met a minimum set of criteria. Applicants were then graded on six factors: assets under management (AUM); AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records. There are no fees or other considerations required of RIAs that apply for the FT 300.

Resonant Capital, which launched in late 2018 in downtown Madison, was formed with a leadership team of Walter Dewey, CFA®, Benjamin Dickey and Richard Thompson CFA®, CFP®, all of whom have had longstanding careers in the local financial industry. It has since grown to eleven professional staff across trading, operations, compliance and client service. The firm currently manages more than $600 million in client assets.

“We’re honored to have been recognized as one of the best RIA firms in the U.S.,” said Ben Dickey, Resonant Capital’s president. “We launched Resonant focused on our clients, who trust us to work hard to help them manage their capital and to provide them with honest and expert advice. We appreciate the Financial Times’ recognition of our efforts.”

The final FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms, as the median AUM of this year’s group is $1.9 billion. The FT 300 Top RIAs represent 39 different states and Washington, D.C.

The FT 300 is one in series of rankings of top advisers by the Financial Times, including the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers) and the FT 400 (broker-dealer advisers).
