Our popular BIC Top 50 ranks the top bank advisors on six variables combined into a weighted average. Those variables include: (1) 2014 AUM; (2) trailing-12 production; (3) % change in AUM from previous year; (4) % change in trailing-12; (5) amount of fee-based business; and (6) ratio of production-per-AUM. As a special online feature, we also listed The Next 50, a list of the advisors who ranked 51 through 100 in our final analysis.

Here we take a fresh look at all 100 advisors (The Top 50 and The Next 50) and list the top 25 based on solely on their percentage growth in AUM. The numbers after their names show where they ranked on our original lists.
