Forbes Names SFO Top RIA Firm

Stokes is the only Louisiana firm ranked and #35 out of the top 100 advisory firms nationally.


NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 25, 2022—Stokes Family Office, LLC, an SEC registered investment adviser, announced today that it has been named to Forbes’ list of America’s Top Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firms. The #35 ranking demonstrates the success of the firm’s client-first, relationship-building strategy.

The Forbes ranking of America’s Top RIA Firms, developed by SHOOK Research, includes 100 advisory firms across the U.S. with cumulative assets of $730 billion. 

“Never before has the need for steady-handed financial advice been greater. RIA firms, which are legally bound by a fiduciary standard, remain one of the fastest-growing segments in the wealth management business, precisely because they are committed to working in a client’s best interest rather than for such things as high commission products,” the Forbes release article states.



Forbes/SHOOK invited over 20,000 firms to apply for the ranking. The list is based on SHOOK Research’s in-person, virtual and telephone due diligence meetings and a ranking algorithm that includes: a measure of best practices, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including assets under management and revenue generated for their firms (data as of 12/31/21).

*No fee was charged to participate.
