McLarty credits Gratus Capital’s “deep bench” for cultivating a client experience that is as customized and personal as it is sophisticated and holistic.

“The people here at Gratus are the strength and the driving force of our success,” McLarty said. “Our team is committed and intentional to building a client-centric culture that exceeds expectations, and we continue to build together every day.”

Forbes’ Top Wealth Advisors list comprises a select group of advisors with a minimum of seven years of industry experience. The ranking, developed by SHOOK Research, a Forbes partner, is based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data, rating thousands of wealth advisors and weighing factors such as revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience, and best practices learned through telephone and in-person interviews.

Third-party rankings and recognition from rating services or publications are no guarantee of future investment success. Working with a highly-rated advisor does not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance of results.  These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client, nor are they representative of any one client’s evaluation. Additional details regarding the criteria and process utilized in formulating these rankings are described below.

The Forbes ranking of America’s Top 250 Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years of experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, AUM, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. This ranking is not indicative of an advisor’s future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients’ experience.
