)-- Nathan Sealey, Certified Financial Planner™ and an Investment Advisor Representative with NEXT Financial Group, Inc., member FINRA/SIPC, has been awarded the elite FIVE STAR Wealth Manager Award for 2010. His areas of focus are retirement, income and estate planning, 401K and investment, and insurance services.
The FIVE STAR award is the only one of its kind that incorporates both client and industry professional evaluations. It is an exclusive award given to less than 7 percent of over 11,000 wealth managers in the Detroit and surrounding areas. The 2010 list was published in ‘The Best of Detroit’ special issue for HOUR Detroit and D Business magazine.
The FIVE STAR Award is awarded by Crescendo Business Services and surveyed by QMI Research which according to www.fivestarprofessional.com, helps assist consumers in selecting wealth managers based on nine criteria: customer service, integrity, knowledge/expertise, communication, value for fee charged, meeting of financial objectives, post-sale services, quality of recommendations and overall satisfaction. The survey is conducted by phone and mail and distributed to over 80,000 high net-worth households and an additional 4,350 surveys going to financial professionals. Each selected wealth manager is then reviewed for any regulatory actions, civil judicial actions and customer complaints as reported by FINRA and other regulatory agencies. Finally, it is reviewed by a blue ribbon panel comprised of knowledgeable individuals from within the financial services industry.
