David L. Bahnsen of The Bahnsen Group at HighTower Advisors Named in

Forbes’ 2017 List of America’s Top Wealth Advisors


NEW YORK, NY; September 29, 2017 – The Bahnsen Group is pleased to announce that David Bahnsen, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of The Bahnsen Group of HighTower Advisors, has been named on the Forbes’ 2017 List of America’s Top Wealth Advisors.

The Forbes America’s Top Wealth Advisors list is reserved for only the most accomplished advisors in the country who meet a broad range of rigorous qualifications.  Compiled by SHOOK Research, the list is based on the quality and quantity of factors including assets under management, revenue generated, the firm’s client retention, industry experience, and other criteria.

Mr. Bahnsen, who operates The Bahnsen Group out of Newport Beach, CA, directs all portfolio and strategic asset allocation decisions.  Before founding The Bahnsen Group, David was with UBS Financial and Morgan Stanley, where he held the position of Managing Director.

“This recognition is deeply appreciated, especially given the Forbes/SHOOK emphasis on qualitative and quantitative metrics in formulating the list.  Ultimately, this recognition is a by-product of the great team I am surrounded with at The Bahnsen Group – true fiduciaries and professionals who obsess over the experience we deliver clients,” says David Bahnsen.

“The HighTower advisors on this list are distinguished professionals and highly-respected members of our community,” said Elliot Weissbluth, CEO of HighTower. “Recognition by Forbes is a testament to their tremendous dedication to clients. We congratulate them on yet another well-deserved honor.”

David Bahnsen founded The Bahnsen Group in 2001. He has previously been named as one of Wall Street’s Top 40 Advisors, and was listed in the Financial Times Top 400 Advisors in America.
