Layton White named one of the top financial advisors in the country


Local Bremer Bank financial advisor Layton White was recently named one of Bank Investment Consultant magazine’s Top 100 Bank Advisors for 2018. White has spent more than 15 years serving the Devils Lake area, including Rugby, Carrington, and Minot.

“I’m honored and grateful to be among such talented company in this humbling recognition,” said White. “The Devils Lake community is incredible, and I am proud to represent it.” 

The magazine considered six factors1 when awarding its recognitions, with an intent to establish a well-rounded view of advisors and recognize those who are all-around players and skilled in every aspect of their industry. White’s grassroots approach made him a standout.

“Layton has an unmatched ability to guide clients through the financial planning process, helping them to achieve their goals,” said Stephen Kruchten, president of Bremer Investment Services. “We are fortunate to have Layton on our team, and our North Dakota communities are stronger for it.”

  • 1To compile the list, multiple variables were combined into one composite score. The six categories used were: (1) assets under management; (2) trailing-12 month production; (3) percentage increase in AUM from the previous year; (4) percentage increase in T-12 production; (5) amount of fee business; and (6) the ratio of production-per-AUM. The nominees were ranked by each of the six categories and then six different scores were calculated based on where they ranked. Those six scores were used to compile the final list. The ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience, is not an endorsement, and is not indicative of the advisor’s future performance. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Raymond James is not affiliated with Bank Investment Consultant Magazine
