PLANADVISER did not consider advisers who did not submit information to PLANADVISER or were not nominated for the award.  Nominees were then asked to complete a form, providing various details about their practice. PLANADVISER did not consider input from clients of Advisers. Advisers could also, for the first time, submit such information unsolicited, although not to be considered for the awards. The PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers list is drawn solely from a smaller set of quantitative factors and information supplied by the advisers themselves.
