As part of our Top Bank Advisors ranking, we asked each nominee about their latest trailing-12 production as well as their assets under management. Then we calculated the ratio of the revenue they generate to the assets they have to work with. If they view their book of business as a company, this is their ROA. That ratio is used as just part of their overall ranking, but now we've re-ranked all our advisors on just this one metric. The numbers after their names indicate where they ranked in our original lists.

The average profitability was about 75 basis points, but these top 25 advisors start at 1%. Click through to see how high this ratio gets. Or see them in a slideshow.
