CANTON, Ohio (Oct. 10, 2022) – Beese Fulmer Private Wealth Management, a leading Northeast Ohio private investment firm, has been named to the 2022 CNBC FA 100 list of top U.S. registered investment advisors (RIAs). Rising to #48 from its debut at #55 in 2021, Beese Fulmer is the only firm in Northeast Ohio on the CNBC FA 100 list. Beese Fulmer is registered with the SEC as an investment advisor providing solutions to high-net-worth, ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families and institutions.

Working with AccuPoint Solutions, CNBC began with an initial list of 39,818 RIA firms. Based upon CNBC’s proprietary criteria, that list was cut to 904 RIAs. After additional information data gathering and analysis, the final list of 100 was determined.

“Our mission at Beese Fulmer is to create wealth for our clients based upon a rational, deliberate, and purposeful approach to investing,” said company president Ryan T. Fulmer. “We are honored to be named to the CNBC FA 100 and appreciate the recognition that a rational strategy is a winning strategy,” Fulmer continued.

Serving in a fiduciary capacity, Beese Fulmer upholds the industry’s highest standard, so it only does better when clients do better. The firm’s approach includes:

  • A rational investment approach to wealth accumulation and preservation.
  • Investment strategies tailored to meet each client’s unique needs and wealth goals such as accumulating or maintaining wealth, planning for retirement, estate, and tax planning, and legacy and succession wealth planning.
  • Active management of individual accounts by dedicated investment counselors and the firm’s investment sector experts.
  • A transparent, one-fee approach beginning at 1% of assets and decreasing as wealth grows.

CNBC FA 100 Methodology

The list was selected using a proprietary methodology developed by CNBC in partnership with data provider AccuPoint Solutions. In 2022, CNBC evaluated thousands of firms to develop this year's CNBC FA 100 List. Considered in the rankings were categories such as assets under management, number of investment advisors registered with the firm, compliance records and total accounts under management, among others. CNBC and AccuPoint Solutions determined the weighting for each category, further refining and ranking the firms, ultimately creating the list of CNBC FA 100.
