LOUISVILLE (July 25, 2017) – ARGI Investment Services, a Louisville based Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), was recently named one of Financial Advisor Magazine’s 2017 Top RIA’s in the nation. This is the 5th time ARGI will be recognized for this award.
A RIA is an advisor or firm that is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and engages in advising others about investing. All advisors under a RIA are held to the fiduciary standard.
RIA companies across the country participated in the application process. Companies applying to be one of Financial Advisor Magazine’s top RIA’s must complete a detailed questionnaire conducted by FA Magazine. To be eligible for the ranking, firms must be independent Registered Investment Advisors and file their own ADV statement with the SEC, and provide financial planning and related services to individual clients.
At number 169, ARGI was ranked the top RIA in Kentucky out of five recognized in the state. In 2016, ARGI Financial Group (ARGI Investment Services’ parent company) grew its workforce more than 25 percent, and company leaders attribute that to not only explosive company growth, but to newly implemented employee recognition programs, competitive benefits packages and a corporate social responsibility program, ARGI Gives.
“On behalf of the entire firm, I’m truly honored that ARGI has been recognized again as one Kentucky’s, and the nation’s top Registered Investment Advisors,” said Joe Reeves, CFP, and CEO of ARGI. “We started this company with the mission to improve the lives of everyone affiliated with our firm. That includes our clients, our community and most of all each other. We have made a conscience effort to focus on developing our employees, and believe that when we hire employees that we can educate and train on various industry standards, it gives us leverage to better accommodate our clients.
ARGI has continually made the decision to stay on the offensive in both bear and bull markets. In down times of the market, we have focused on outplacement services, direct investment strategies and providing comprehensive financial advice. During times when the market is booming, we focus on providing our clients with similar advice, and remind them that what goes up must come down.
