PHILADELPHIA, May 10, 2019 — Wescott Financial Advisory Group has been named by Barron’s as one of the top five financial advisory firms in Pennsylvania for 2019. This marks more than a decade of Wescott ranking amongst the top 1,200 financial advisors in the country and its sixth year ranking in the top five.

“Our firm has been in business for over thirty years, and throughout that time, we have helped our many clients, and their families, develop a dynamic financial plan,” said Grant Rawdin, Wescott’s Founder and CEO. “Our advisors have spent these three-plus decades serving our clients, acknowledging their unique financial challenges and meeting their needs, while developing not only professional relationships but personal friendships. Receiving continuous recognition from one of the industry’s top financial publications is wonderful confirmation of our bespoke approach and our success.”

Barron’s reputable advisor rankings are based on the assessment of multiple factors of advisory firms including assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. This comprehensive system evaluates independent advisors, as well as advisors from Wall Street firms.

Rawdin founded Wescott in 1987, with the first of now three offices. Outside of Wescott, he continues to play an active role in both professional and community organizations. He is a founding member of the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning Advisory Council and is the immediate past chair of the Philadelphia region’s Urban Affairs Coalition, which works to improve quality of life in the region by strengthening nonprofit organizations.
