Accordingly, the publication of DBR & CO’s web site on the Internet should not be construed by any consumer and/or prospective client as DBR & CO’s solicitation to effect, or attempt to effect transactions in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation, over the Internet. Furthermore, the information resulting from the use of tools or other information on this Internet site should not be construed, in any manner whatsoever, as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized individual advice from DBR & CO.

Registration of an investment adviser does not imply any specific level of skill or training and does not constitute an endorsement of the firm by the Commission.

Advisory HQ’s Top Ten advisors’ rankings are based on methodologies used by established financial news organizations and are highly focused on three pillars: total assets under management (AUM), firm size/quality, and the amount of revenue generated by an advisory firm. AdvisoryHQ’s Advisor Selection Methodology is based on a wide range of filters including fiduciary duty, independence, transparency, level of customized service, history of innovation, fee structure, quality of services provided, team excellence, and wealth of experience. The review and ranking articles are always 100% independently researched and written without the ranked Firms knowing they are being reviewed.

Certain supervised persons of DBR & CO, in their individual capacities, as registered representatives of a broker-dealer, may provide securities brokerage services and implement securities transactions under a separate commission based arrangement and may be entitled to a portion of the brokerage commissions paid to the brokerage firm, as well as a share of any ongoing distribution or service (trail) fees from the sale of mutual funds.
