2013 Five Star Wealth Manager Award



Area Wealth Manager Qualifies for Award Based on Research

Minneapolis, January 1, 2013 – Five Star Professional has named James E. Dy, CFP®, CIMA®, AAMS®, AWMA® - the 2013 Five Star Wealth Manager award. The award winner appears in a special section in the January issue of New Jersey Monthly.

Five Star Professional partnered with New Jersey Monthly to find wealth managers who satisfy 10 objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients, such as credentials, experience, and assets under management, among other factors. Wealth Managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of 2013 Five Star Wealth Managers. Fewer than two percent of the 51,400 wealth managers in the New Jersey area were selected.

Award candidates were identified by one of three sources: firm nomination, peer nomination or pre-qualification. Five Star Professional relied on internal and external research data, including a survey to more than 9,400 financial services professionals and all identified financial service companies in the New Jersey area. Survey recipients were asked to nominate wealth managers they felt were worthy of consideration for the Five Star Wealth Manager award. Each wealth manager was reviewed for disciplinary actions, customer complaints and regulatory actions as reported by regulatory agencies.

Five Star Professional conducts market-specific research throughout the U.S. and Canada to identify service professionals who provide quality services to their clients. Five Star Professional joins forces with city and regional magazines to make the research results available to consumers in more than 45 markets across the United States and Canada. Five Star Professional was founded in 2003 and is based in Minneapolis, MN. For more information, go to:
