BOSTON, MA, (December 1, 2016) — Client Focused Advisors of New York City and Long Island, led by co-founders Jason Hill, Matthew Hill, William Phillips, and Brett Sigler, was named as a finalist for the second consecutive year in Signator Investors, Inc.’s “Practice of the Year” competition, sponsored by Fidelity Clearing & Custody Solutions, for the firm’s excellence in key areas of practice management, client service, and overall practice performance.

With more than 1,000 clients in the Tri-State area, Client Focused Advisors focuses on building and preserving wealth for business owners and senior executives. The firm also aims to help clients achieve their goals of enjoying a secure retirement, leaving a legacy, and providing a college education for children or grandchildren.

As part of the finalist selection process, Client Focused Advisors underwent a rigorous assessment conducted by the international management consulting firm Business Health, which reviewed client service, internal planning and structure, external relations, staffing and technology capabilities, and overall practice performance.

“Everyone involved in Client Focused Advisors has a keen awareness of the importance of building relationships and focusing on their clients’ needs,” said Matthew Rigatti, Vice President, Sales and Field Resources. “Attention to detail, as well as experience and hard work serves them well and we are pleased to have them as one of the leading firms in our network.”

In order to be considered, Signator’s financial advisors must apply and complete Business Health’s HealthCheck, a web-based business assessment tool that benchmarks a practice in several areas. Among all HealthChecks received, 5 finalists were selected and each received a site audit of their practice from Business Health. Business Health and a panel of outside financial industry experts then review the audit results and a winner is chosen. The winner will be announced in January 2017.
