LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2023 — Evoke Advisors, an independent wealth advisory and investment management firm, is pleased to announce that, for the second consecutive year, it was named the No. 1 Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm in America by Forbes.

"Our team understands that to truly serve our clients’ needs, we must take an impassioned and proactive approach that balances clients’ generational investment goals, the highest level of integrity, and a forward-looking entrepreneurial spirit. We are humbled to be included on a list of such distinguished RIAs."
Co-CIO of Evoke Advisors, Damien Bisserier, observed, “Our dedication to providing clients with thoughtfully constructed portfolios and access to some of the highest quality traditional and alternative investments is an important factor in the success of Evoke and is likely reflected in this recognition from Forbes.”

The Forbes ranking of America’s Top RIA Firms, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone, virtual and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. The algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. SHOOK scours the financial services industry for nominations. SHOOK accepts advisors who meet pre-determined minimum thresholds and acceptable compliance records. As of this date, SHOOK has received nearly 42,643 nominations—advisors who meet SHOOK’s thresholds. 23,100 of these nominees have taken an online survey. SHOOK Research creates rankings of role models—firms that are leading the way in offering best practices and providing a high-quality experience for clients. A focus on both quantitative and qualitative factors, including telephone and in-person meetings, is imperative.
