Financial Times Ranks Patti Brennan amongst Top 400 Advisors in the Nation

WEST CHESTER, PA, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – This morning, President & CEO of Key Financial Inc., Patti Brennan CFP®, CFS, was officially named to the 2017 Financial Times Top 400 Financial Advisors. This ranking places Brennan among the elite advisors at national, independent, regional and bank broker dealers across the U.S – an impressive feat, as the average FT 400 advisor manages 1.7 billion in assets.

The vetting process begins by selecting advisors from the largest broker dealers in the nation with a minimum 10+ years’ experience, and $300 million or more in assets under management. From there, advisors are scored based on a variety of standards including AUM, AUM growth, and compliance records. Financial Times selection process is completely independent and objective, taking over a half a year to arrive at the Top 400.

When asked about the accomplishment, Brennan was quick to note, “When it comes down to it, it’s all about teamwork. The whole is only as good as the sum of its parts, and I am blessed to have such a talented and dedicated team of professionals who are committed to the highest standards. I am honored to be placed in such a ranking, and consider this a team win.”

She has formerly served on the Boards of the Chester County Economic Development Council, SEEDCO and Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital. As the President and CEO of Key Financial for more than 28 years, Brennan provides comprehensive wealth management with integrated strategies that are unique to each client.
