We are proud to announce that our Director of Retirement Services, Damian Dufour, has been named as one of NAPA’s 2019 Top 11 Retirement Plan Advisors Under 40, AKA “Young Guns.” Established in 2014, this list is based on applications received from nominees designated by NAPA Broker-Dealer/RIA Firm Partners. Those applications are vetted by a blue-ribbon panel of senior advisor industry experts based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative data submitted by the nominees, as well as a broker-check review. These “Young Guns” are widely seen as the future leaders of the retirement plan advisor industry.
Disclosure: NAPA Net Magazine bases its rankings upon data provided by individual advisers, including submissions by Reilly Financial Advisors (“RFA”). Nominations from the list were provided by NAPA Broker-Dealer/RIA Firm Partners. Nominees had to be retirement plan advisors with their own book of business, and had to be less than 40 years of age.
Nominees are required to submit responses to an application comprised of a series of quantitative and qualitative questions about their experience, size and composition of their practice, awards and recognitions, and industry contributions, which were then reviewed by a panel of senior advisor industry experts, who, based on those criteria, and following a broker-check review, selected the top young advisors.
