Arnone named to Top 1,000 Advisors list
Scott Arnone, an Edward Jones financial adviser in Lewiston since 1990, has been named to Barron's magazine's list of the "Top 1,000 Financial Advisors in the United States." He ranked No. 3 among Idaho's top advisers.
"The Barron's ranking is a widely respected list of the nation's pre-eminent financial advisers, so this is an honor and testament to Scott's dedication to his clients," says Edward Jones Managing Partner Jim Weddle.
The formula Barron's magazine uses to rank advisers is proprietary. It has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. Investment returns are not a component, because an adviser's returns are dictated largely by the risk tolerance of clients.
