WESTPORT, Conn. - Westport Resources founder and CEO John Adams Vaccaro has been named one of Barron’s “Top 100 Financial Advisors in America” for 2014.
“To be ranked within this elite group of advisers is a very special honor,” Vaccaro said. “I commend my Westport Resources team for its hard work and commitment to excellence. I also thank our clients for their loyalty and support.”
Westport Resources is a leading independent investment firm serving individuals, families, municipalities and institutions around the world.
This is the first time that Vaccaro, who was ranked 91st, has received this recognition. It differs from the February 2014 ranking that Barron’s conducted of the “Top 1,200 Financial Advisors in America” in which the leading advisers in each of the 50 states were highlighted. In that list, Vaccaro ranked seventh for Connecticut. This ranking disregards location.
Also, Vaccaro is one of only eight independent financial advisers recognized in this ranking; the remaining are advisers representing large securities brokerage firms and banks.
Barron’s rankings are based on the following criteria: assets managed, revenue generated for the advisers’ firms, and the quality of advisers’ practices.
Published by Dow Jones & Company, Barron’s is a top weekly financial newspaper in the United States.
In August, Barron’s also reports a ranking of the “Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors in America.” Vaccaro has been included in this ranking for the last five consecutive years.
Westport Resources is an independent investment and financial planning firm headquartered in Westport that was founded in 1986 by Vaccaro.
The firm’s wealth management arm, Westport Resources Management Inc. specializes in managing assets for a select private client group of individuals, families, municipalities and not-for-profit organizations.
