The Paladin Registry of Advisors is an independent organization
whose basic purpose is to help both individual and institutional investors find competent, trustworthy advisers through a
profiling process that documents and compares the operating structures, credentials and experience for investment advisory
firms and for individual advisors.
Advisers are rated on a scale of one to five stars, with less than 10% of advisors
qualifying for the highest 5-Star Rating. They use an extensive rating process and specific criteria to evaluate advisors.
Their rating process is listed on their website: 5-star rating process
