PlanAdviser Magazine, a national publication that provides comprehensive industry news, regulatory and investment information and research and training to financial advisers, published their "Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers" list in their November – December 2010 issue.

Additionally, the list highlighted those who have a demonstrable presence, defined as having more than a tenth of their practice focused on 403(b) plans, defined contribution plan, nonqualified plans, or 457 plans.

This year's "Top 100" was comprised of 36 advisers and 64 adviser teams. Tom Anthony, Director of Retirement Plan Services for McKinley Carter, was among the 36 advisers listed. Anthony was also 1 of 19 advisers recognized for having a demonstrable presence in 403(b) plans (defined as having 10% or more in 403(b) plans).

To compile the "Top 100" list nominations were solicited online from retirement plan advisers, their employers and/or broker/dealers, and plan sponsors, as well as from working partners of the advisers, including investment vendors, accountants and attorneys, and pension administrators. Advisers who have attained the PLANSPONSOR Retirement Professional (PRP) designation receive an automatic nomination. The "Top 100" list is based solely on quantitative factors.
