)-- Paragon Wealth Management, an investment management company in Provo, Utah, was listed on Wealth Manager Magazine’s “2008 Top Dogs” list, which includes the top advisory firms in the United States.

Survey respondents do not include banks, broker/dealers or trust companies.
Wealth Manager said the overall assets under management for the 2008 Top Dogs range from $14.4 billion at the largest firm to $36 million at the smallest firm, with an average total AUM of $632.6 million and a median AUM of $256.3 million—up 8.4 percent from $236.5 million in 2007, and up 28.8 percent from the $199 million reported in 2006.
