For Immediate Release:
Sanctuary Wealth’ Chris and Brian Cooke of Cooke Financial Group Named to Forbes List of Top Wealth Advisors
INDIANAPOLIS, IN, October 29, 2018 – Sanctuary Wealth is pleased to announce that Chris and Brian Cooke of Cooke Financial Group have both been named to the Forbes’ 2018 Top 250 Wealth Advisors, a ranking of the best financial advisors in the United States.
The Forbes’ 2018 list of top wealth advisors includes 250 advisors across the nation selected from more than 25,000 nominations by SHOOK Research. While this is the first year that the Cooke brothers have been nominated to the list, Chris and Brian Cooke were the only two advisors from Indiana included in the ranking this year. (The full list can be viewed here.)
Chris and Brian Cooke are Principals and Senior Institutional Consultants at Cooke Financial Group. They oversaw the Cooke Financial Group merger with the Noyes Group, LLC in 2016, thus laying the groundwork for the formation of Sanctuary Wealth, of which the Cooke Financial Group was the inaugural partner team. The brothers currently also serve as Board Members of Sanctuary Wealth.
Jim Dickson, President and Founder of Sanctuary Wealth, proudly states, “We congratulate Chris and Brian Cooke for their recognition by Forbes, which we believe is both well-deserved and well-earned. Chris and Brian are leading the way by example, helping us all aspire for better. Their exemplary values, unwavering dedication to building and preserving client wealth, and philosophy of putting clients first has helped raise the bar for service in our industry.”
Cooke Financial Group provides holistic financial planning, professional investment, and wealth management consulting services for individuals and their families, as well as for nonprofit organizations, corporations, retirement plans, and trusts. It is through the Sanctuary network that the Cooke Financial Group pioneered the concept of Partnered IndependenceSM by providing like-minded independent advisors open-architecture access to best-in-class investments, resources, and operational support.
“We feel very privileged to be named among the nation’s top financial advisors,” says Brian Cooke. “Each day we show up with one goal in mind — helping our clients succeed financially. Not only are we deeply honored to be recognized by Forbes for doing what we love to do, but humbled too. Our business was built on putting clients first. We are a second-generation family business that considers clients to be part of our extended family. We are dedicated to the success of every client and that is a commitment we have lived by every day for almost 50 years.”
Chris Cooke expresses his appreciation, as well, saying, “We are tremendously honored by this recognition from Forbes because we believe it establishes not just Cooke Financial Group as a leading family office practice — but Sanctuary as one of the leading Advisor-led firms in the country. Partnered Independence has many advantages. Through the Sanctuary network, Advisors have more options available to help their clients realize their investment goals by providing services that are more customized and diverse than might be available through a traditional wirehouse. The cornerstone of Sanctuary Wealth is taking pride in supporting an independent approach that focuses on what comes first, the client.”
