Five Star Professional, as a third party research firm, identified pre-qualified award candidates based on industry data and contacted all identified broker dealers, Registered Investment Advisor firms and FINRA-registered representatives in the Atlanta area (includes Barton, Carroll, Cherokee, Clarke, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, Dekalb, Douglas, Fayette, Floyd, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Jackson, Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties in the state of Georgia) to gather wealth manager nominations. Self-nominations were not accepted. 
Award candidates were then evaluated against 10 objective eligibility and evaluation criteria associated with wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients such as client retention rates, client assets administered, firm review and a favorable regulatory and complaint history. Five Star Professional finalized the list of 2012 Five Star Wealth Managers to be no more than 7% of the approximately 18,400 wealth managers in the area. 2,660 award candidates in the Atlanta area were considered for the award, of which 607 were named 2012 Five Star Wealth Managers. 
- Wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Five Star Wealth Managers. 
- The Five Star award is not indicative of the wealth manager's future performance. 
- Wealth managers may or may not use discretion in their practice and therefore may not manage their client's assets. 
- The inclusion of a wealth manager on the Five Star Wealth Manager list should not be construed as an endorsement of the wealth manager by Five Star Professional or Atlanta magazine. 
- Working with a Five Star Wealth Manager or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success, nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment by Five Star Professional in the future.
