WALTHAM, MA (March 7, 2016)—Commonwealth Financial Network® congratulates Thomas Bartholomew, Joseph Chornyak, Sr., and Steven Stocker on being named to Barron’s list of America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors for 2016. The magazine’s largest ranking of advisors, Barron’s Top 1,200 represents the top 1 percent of advisors.

To compile its annual list, Barron’s, a leading financial publication, uses data based on the nation’s most productive advisors. Barron’s takes a number of criteria into account for this state–by–state ranking, including assets under management; revenues generated by advisors for their firms; quality of practices, which includes examination of regulatory records; and philanthropic work. The list includes both Registered Investment Advisers and Investment Adviser Representatives; some states may include more advisors than others, in proportion to state populations.

Wayne Bloom, CEO of Commonwealth, said, "Congratulations to each one of our remarkable advisors who ranks in this elite and sought–after list of industry leaders. Year–over–year, these advisors prove their ability to adapt to the market, as well as strategically advise and emotionally support their clients. Their world–class service is deserving of our praise, and we are devoted to supporting their practice."

The Commonwealth–affiliated advisors ranked among other advisors named to the list in their states include:
