Chester County’s Patti Brennan Ranks #22 in Barron’s Top 100 Women Advisors in the Nation

WEST CHESTER, PA — Key Financial, Inc., a financial planning and wealth management firm that oversees over $1.5 billion of assets under management, announced that Patti Brennan, CEO, has moved up the ranks from #23 last year to the #22 spot this year in Barron’s Top 100 Women’s Advisors in the Nation. America’s top female advisors, as identified by Barron’s, was published on Monday, June 20, 2022. The ranking reflects assets overseen by the advisors and their teams, the revenues generated for the firms and the quality of the advisor’s practices. Brennan has consistently remained on this exclusive list, including being ranked earlier this year as the #7 Advisor in Pennsylvania (Male and Female), as well as being inducted into the Barron’s Hall of Fame in the Fall of 2019, a distinction held only by a handful of advisors in America.

The annual ranking is assembled from extensive research examining assets under management, revenue generated by advisors for their firms, and quality of the advisors’ practices. Investment performance is a case by case basis; however, evaluations include examination of regulatory records, internal company documents, and 100-plus points of data provided by the advisors themselves.

“Our country is experiencing unprecedented inflation and rising interest rates. Now, more than ever, the implementation of key strategies as proactive measures on behalf of our clients, do make a difference! I am grateful to Barron’s for continuing to support the efforts of financial advisors nationally, through their conferences, summits, podcasts and publications. They are working to provide best practices and relay relevant and timely information. I also cannot say enough about the members of my team who are working tirelessly through these volatile market conditions to make sure our clients are taken care of and their legacies are preserved,” said Brennan.
