A fee was not paid by either the investment professional or the investment professional’s firm to receive the ranking. The ranking is based upon specific criteria and methodology (see ranking criteria/methodology).

DISCLOSURE – PALADIN REGISTRY
Source: Paladin Research and Registry ("Paladin"), all rights reserved. Paladin bases its designations based upon research conducted by analysts who review advisor responses to online questionnaires, including submissions from Piermont Wealth Management Inc. ("Piermont"). The questionnaire seeks to gather key facts including information about: degrees, experience, certifications, licensing, registrations, compliance record, fiduciary status, compensation, reporting, custodians, planning services, investment services, insurance services, tax services, and legal services (as applicable). Paladin implements a proprietary algorithm to rate the responses, such that only advisors who score in the 90th percentile or higher receive a "5 Star Quality Rating," which is the minimum requirement for being included in Paladin's registry. Paladin's analysts also cross-reference public data available from FINRA.org, SEC.gov, state securities commissioners, advisor websites, and Google.
Piermont pays a $175 monthly fee to Paladin for the license to: describe itself as a "Paladin Registry Five Star Advisor" or a "Paladin Registry 5 Star Rated Member," and for the limited use of the "Paladin Registry Five Star Advisor" icon. Piermont is unaware of any undisclosed facts that could potentially invalidate the appropriateness of the designation. By virtue of disclosing this designation, Piermont is only disclosing favorable ratings without disclosing any unfavorable ratings to the extent that the unfavorable ratings do not place Piermont below the 90th percentile as described above. By virtue of receiving the right to use the above-designations, Piermont is not stating or implying that it is top-rated in any specific category because Paladin does not rank investment advisors accordingly. Piermont is not aware of the percentage of other advisers that received the applicable ranking. The ranking may not be representative of any one client's experience because of the way in which it is calculated. The ranking is absolutely not indicative of Piermont's future performance, or any future performance pertaining to its clients' investments. This ranking or any other rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed as a guarantee that a client will experience a certain level of results or satisfaction if Piermont is engaged, nor should it be construed as a current or past endorsement by any of its clients. A copy of Piermont's current written disclosure statement discussing its advisory services and fees remains available upon request. Additional information about the "Paladin Registry Five Star Advisor" or "Paladin Registry 5 Star Rated Member" designations is available here.
