The Investopedia 100 celebrates independent financial advisors who are making significant contributions to critical conversations about financial literacy, investing strategies, life-stage planning and wealth management. With over 100,000 financial advisors in the country, Investopedia 100 recognizes the most engaged, influential, and educational advisors.
We are proud to announce that Peter Lazaroff was ranked #4 by Investopedia 100 Top Financial Advisors of 2023. This is the sixth consecutive year Peter has appeared on the list, and the second year in a row where he is listed among the Top 10.
With more than 100 episodes of The Long-Term Investor live and over 100,000 podcast downloads, Peter has committed to not only bringing the leading voices of investing, but financial planning and relevant world events to help deliver the Plancorp philosophy to people every day.
"This is the type of recognition that truly couldn't be earned without a supportive team and leadership working hard to serve our clients and share our philosophy." Congratulations Peter on this accomplishment and a huge thank you to our clients for their trust over the years.
About Investopedia's Methodology
The annual Investopedia 100 list honors independent U.S.-based financial advisors who have demonstrated top-of-the-industry skills in the following critical areas:
- Reach: defined as the domain authority of their personal blog or website, followers across socials (LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube), and podcasts (including appearances or ownership of a personal podcast).
- Commitment to financial literacy: measured by the advisor's participation in workshops, programs, nonprofits or collaboration with others in the community to spread financial education to those who need it most, as well as the creation of accessible content.
- Community support: measured through peer nominations by industry professionals outside of their own firms, as well as the advisor's presence and engagement with other in the financial planning industry.
Each advisor CRD number was checked for validity, and each application was checked for accuracy and quality. Final scores were tabulated according to weights designated for each of the criteria above. Investopedia received no compensation from placing advisors on our list, nor does an advisor's appearance on our list constitute an individual endorsement by Investopedia of such advisor.
