K. Comments
  • Five stars indicate a financial advisor scored in the 90th percentile or higher when Paladin evaluated the professional's credentials, ethics, and business practices. Advisors must achieve a five star quality to be profiled in Paladin's Registry. Some advisors who are listed in the Registry have more education, experience, and certifications than other advisors. Registry profiles display data that are submitted to Paladin by advisors, however Paladin does not validate the accuracy of all of the data. Investors are solely responsible for validating the accuracy of advisor data before making their selection decision. A five star quality rating is not an indicator of future results.
