List Fairhope, AL – Merrill Lynch announced today that Wealth Management Advisor S. Wesley Carpenter, CPWA®, CFP®, ChFC®, CRPC®, CPFA has been recognized on the 2020 Forbes "Top Next Generation Wealth Advisors" list, published on July 22, 2020.

The Forbes "Top Next Generation Wealth Advisor" ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively, a major component of a ranking algorithm that includes: client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC and not representative nor indicative of any one client’s experience, future performance, or investment outcome. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receives compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking.
Carpenter resides in Fairhope, AL, and has been a part of Merrill Lynch’s Fairhope office for 13 years.
