View a video about how Bob Mecca was selected to received the Wealth Manager Award for four consecutive years.
The award, presented to less than 2 percent of the wealth managers in the Chicagoland area, was based on random polling of high net worth households and individuals within the financial services industry. Survey recipients evaluated wealth managers whom they know through personal experience. The evaluation process was based upon nine criteria: customer service, communication, knowledge/expertise, value for fee charged, integrity, meeting financial objectives, post-sale service, quality of recommendations and overall satisfaction.
Bob Mecca did not apply for this award and does not pay a fee to be included in the research or the final list of Five Star Wealth Managers. Go to this link to learn more about the selection process.
We were not officially notified that we have been included in the award until after their selection process was completed. No information was prepared or submitted in order to be recognized. No fees were paid by our firm to be included on the list.
We are required to share with you that third party rankings and recognition from rating services or publications - while an honor - are no guarantee of future investment success. Working with a highly rated advisor does not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance or results. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement by any client nor are they representative of any one client's evaluation.
