Forbes and InvestmentNews Name Altair a Top RIA Firm

We are pleased to start off 2017 by noting Altair’s inclusion in Forbes’ annual ranking of the 100 Fastest-Growing Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) in the country in addition to being highlighted as a “Midwest Success Story” in Crain’s InvestmentNews ranking of fee-only advisory firms.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a leader in the field, particularly by groups like Forbes and Crains,” said Bryan Malis, Altair Managing Director and founding partner.

Both rankings focus on fee-only firms who are registered with the SEC, provide wealth management services and serve individual clients as a primary focus. Broker/dealers, hedge funds, those managing large funds and firms with disciplinary disclosures were excluded. Altair does not pay to be included in any external ranking of any kind.

Our heartfelt thanks to our clients and professional referral sources whose trust and confidence in us make these accolades possible. We look forward to serving you across the year!

Awarded in December 2016 and is based on the previous year.
