Four Indian-Americans named in Forbes list of top US wealth advisors

Aug 4, 2016 0

WALTHAM, MA–Four Indian-Americans have been named among the nation’s top wealth advisors by Forbes magazine.  The list of 200 advisors includes Raj Sharma, Ash Chopra, Sonny Kothari and Raju Pathak.

Raj Sharma-action“The 200 members of Forbes’ 2016 list of America’s Top Wealth Advisors collectively manage $675 billion, serving clients that range from Silicon Valley billionaires and Wall Street titans to small business owners and family fortunes,” Forbes magazine said.

Sharma and Chopra, both working in Merrill Lynch-Private Banking & Investment Group, have been ranked 17th and 129, respectively, on the Forbes 2016 list of top wealth advisors. Kothari of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management is ranked 176 and Pathak of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management has been ranked at 184 in the coveted list of wealth advisors.

“Though list members might seem to have a lot in common, there are plenty of differences too,” Forbes said. “Some advisors cater to smaller investors — or what one, Gerstein Fisher’s Gregg Fisher (#28), calls “regular people” — while others have hefty minimums of $10 million and up as their threshold for taking on new business.”
