Douglas Stewart named one of country’s top 1,000 financial advisors

Doug StewartBarron’s magazine this week named Fredericksburg’s Douglas Stewart as one of the top 1,000 financial advisors in the U.S. Stewart is a managing director with Cary Street Partners in Fredericksburg. His firm was known as Stewart Wealth Management Group before merging with Cary Street Partners in June 2007. Barron’s ranked Stewart as the no. 9 financial advisor in Virginia, with $658 million in assets under management and a typical client account of $3 million.

Barron’s reviewed "extensive" surveys filled out by more than 4,000 nominees to create the list. The investing magazine then talked with the advisors and their firms. The rankings are based on assets under management, revenue created for their firms, the quality of their practices and the absence of regulatory violations.
