PHILADELPHIA, September 2, 2015 – Wescott Financial Advisory Group has been ranked by Barron’s, one of the nation’s leading financial publications, as one of the Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors in the United States.

“We are humbled to be continually ranked by some of the most renowned and respected trade publications and news media among some of the best advisors in the industry,” Rawdin said. “We are particularly honored to be on Barron’s list, as it highlights our stability, our growth in assets and other traits that clients and advisors truly seek in a registered independent advisor.”
