Financial Advisors to Follow on Social Media

Share

For those of you who are regular readers here you know that I publish list posts very infrequently, so two in a row is a real rarity.  However both the nature of the list below and the fact that I am in and out of the office about equally this week convinced me to go this route.

BrightScope, a leading provider of independent financial information and research, just released their first Social Influence Rankings for Financial Advisors.

While I was astonished to be number three on this list, I am flattered to be included on a list that includes a number of people whom I admire and learn from.  This list includes Jim Blankenship, George Papadopoulos, and Russ Thornton who I’ve followed from the onset of my involvement in social media.

Josh Brown, Carolyn McClanahan, Neal Frankle, Jeff Rose, Jason Hull, Jude Boudreaux, Alan Moore, Sheri Cupo, and Tom Brakke are others who I follow on a regular basis.   I plan to become familiar with the rest of this list and learn from them as well.

If you are looking for good information about investing, financial planning, retirement, and related financial topics this list is for you.

  1. Roger,
    Please do not let being selected by the Alfred brothers / Brightscope as the third most influential social advisor in America go to your head. Being recognized by Brightscope in this fashion is much like being recognized by the Kardashians.

    • Roger Wohlner says:

      Scott it seems like your beef is with the BrightScope folks yet you seem to feel the need to disparage me for whatever reason. Strikes me as a low blow and pretty unprofessional, but so be it. I simply feel the list of advisors cited represents a good list for readers with an interest in financial planning, investments, and related topics to check out.

      As for BrightScope you are certainly entitled to your opinion but I have been a fan of their’s for a number of years. You clearly have a beef with them which I would ask you to address directly with them and not here.

      Lastly say what you like about the Kardashians but they made an appearance at a local Sears store a couple of years ago and they drew a huge crowd of young women. This was perhaps more traffic than the store might see all year. I also understand their message was one of inspiration to these young women so they are not all bad.

  2. This is a helpful website when it comes to financial advice pertaining to social networking. The site gives you the option to email professionals and they email back relatively quickly.
