Which are the leading RIAs in the West South Central?

The Financial Times' FT 300 list, which assesses the top RIA firms across America, identified 18 firms leading the region.

Despite Texas having more than double the number of listed firms, SEC data reveals Texas-based firms only hold five of the top ten AUM spots – including the biggest FT 300 firm, Avalon Advisors, with almost $6.6 billion in assets under management. But those five Texas-based firms hold the top five spots, with three firms in Louisiana and two in Oklahoma rounding out the top ten. This, year no Arkansas firm made the top ten in terms of assets under management, nor were there any Arkansas firms in the FT 300 list in 2018.

The U.S. Census Bureau’s West South Central region is defined as the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
