Freedman Financial Recognized by Forbes as a Best In State Wealth Advisor 2020

Nationally Recognized and Ranked in the 2020 Top 20 Best-In-State for Massachusetts By Freedman Financial


[PEABODY, MA] — [January 28, 2019]

Marc Freedman of Freedman Financial was recently ranked No. 19 in Massachusetts* in Forbes’ annually published Best-In-State Wealth Advisors.

According to Forbes, the annual list highlights over 4,000 of the nation’s top-performing advisors, nominated by their firms and then evaluated based on a qualitative algorithm and quantitative criteria administered by SHOOK Research. The criteria include interviews, industry experience, community involvement, compliance records, revenue trends and client retention**.

Unlike a “robo-ranker”, SHOOK Research creates rankings of role models—advisors that are leading the way in offering best  practices and providing a high-quality experience for clients. “Here’s what our research has found: the very best advisors are laser focused on having a positive impact on their clients’ lives,” says R.J. Shook, president and founder, SHOOK Research.

“They want to add meaning, help them live better lives.”  Marc concludes with, “We Care. Deeply. is not just a part of our branding, it is how the entire Freedman team efforts to enrich the financial lives of our clients, every day.”

Marc Freedman is based in Peabody, MA and provides financial planning and investment management, and explains it this way, “Our approach is smart, yet uncomplicated,” he continues, “At Freedman Financial, real financial planning means having honest conversations. These help us guide our clients towards capitalizing on their life’s work.
