AdvisoryHQ News is one of the fastest-growing global online news media that provides extensive research, reviews, and rankings of firms and products. We rank firms and products across the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia.

We launched AdvisoryHQ News in 2015, and have grown from zero to an astonishing 6.69 million readers within 2 years (a 13,204% growth rate).

What Does AdvisoryHQ Do?

Searching for top rated firms, services, and products can be a daunting undertaking, especially if you are unfamiliar with the landscape. Consumers shopping for products, services, and information typically conduct extensive research before making a decision. Individuals will visit many websites multiple times; research firms & providers; and compare accounts, services, and plans across multiple companies.

AdvisoryHQ is committed to simplifying the research that you (U.S., U.K., Canadian, and Australian consumers) conduct before choosing a top provider, firm, service or product.     

How Is AdvisoryHQ Different?

Our focus is on the everyday consumer. All of our research and publications are conducted from the end-user consumer's (and NOT from a corporation's) perspective, and we publish our top ranking reviews for anyone to view for free.

We give consumers exactly the information they need without any hype or jargon. Our writing and editorial teams spend countless hours and days reviewing each and every firm and product that we review.

AdvisoryHQ's Objectivity and Value Proposition

​Firms do not pay for their ranking. Our ranking articles are always 100% independently researched and written. In fact, most firms do not even realize that they are being considered by AdvisoryHQ until after our ranking publication has been completed and published to the public. 

However, firms can request that we review their company and services. This is separate from our ranking program. Firms do pay to have AdvisoryHQ conduct an objective review of their companies. Click here to read more about our "Request a Review" service. Note that a review does not warrant that a firm will be included in any of our ranking publications. In order to be included in any AdvisoryHQ ranking list, firms have to pass our rigorous selection methodologies. 

Also, after we’ve published our top ranking publications to the general public, firms can request to have a separate personalized profile, which incurs a charge; they can also request an E-Print copy of their review, which also incurs a charge. Click here for more information on AdvioryHQ's personalized pages.

Consumers and professionals alike appreciate the objective structure and approach that AdvisoryHQ utilizes. 

“Thank you for the review. It’s exciting to see a completely independent ranking company! I appreciate what AdvisoryHQ is doing and appreciate the objective review!”

- Nathan Kubik (CIMA®, CPWA®), a Principal at Carnick & Kubik

"We feel privileged to be a part of this elite group of firms ranked by AdvisoryHQ,” said David Walsh, JD, CFP®, Director of Family Office Services. "It makes it even more meaningful that advisory firms were not able to influence AdvisoryHQ’s rankings in any way. We weren’t even aware of our consideration by AdvisoryHQ until we were notified of our selection. With too many rankings or reviews based on a single metric (like firm size) or coming as a result of ‘pay-to-play’ advertising swaps, AdvisoryHQ’s process is importantly unbiased, objective, and consumer-centric.”

- Kimberly Curtis (CFP®, ChFC, CLU, CAP, AEP, MSFS), President and CEO of Wealth Legacy Institute
