Oxnard-based senior wealth advisor joins Forbes’ Best-in-State Wealth Advisors, a ranking of top advisors in states across the country

DALLAS, March 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avantax Wealth Management℠ Financial Professional Davin Carey was named among the best advisors in California by Forbes Magazine, earning a spot on the publication’s annual Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list. The ranking, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on a specific algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data measuring assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and other business aspects.

A longtime Avantax Financial Professional, Carey recently joined Avantax in a new capacity as Regional Vice President - Financial Planning Consultant. Carey continues to serve his existing book of clients through his independent practice, Carey & Hanna | Tax & Wealth Planners, while also leading the regional expansion of Avantax Planning Partners℠ (formerly HKFS), as the Avantax family strengthens its presence across Southern California delivering tax-integrated financial advice.

“Davin has always been aligned with Avantax’s belief that financial planning fueled by tax-smart advice is the best way to serve clients, and that by integrating unique tax insight into the client’s financial situation, we can uncover opportunities and see pitfalls that others might miss,” said Avantax Wealth Management President Todd Mackay. “Avantax’s mission is to positively impact clients’ lives by helping them pursue their financial goals, and Davin exemplifies this every day; we’re pleased that his excellent work has been recognized by Forbes magazine.”

Over the past decade, Davin has been recognized among an elite tier of Avantax advisors — serving on the Premier Advisors Forum of top 75 producers and recognized as a “Pacesetter” and “Field Leader” for the firm’s rapid growth and commitment to mentoring fellow advisors. Davin is the youngest advisor ever to qualify for the President’s Advisor Council — a network of Avantax’s top 15 producers from across the country — where he has ranked since 2016. For the past several years, Davin has also been a member of the Avantax Advisor Council, participating in pilot programs and providing feedback on products, features and new software that shape the future of the Avantax community.

“I’m excited to be named among Forbes’ Best-in-State Advisors for California,” said Carey. “A commitment to serving my clients’ best interests, coupled with the depth of support Avantax provides Financial Professionals regardless of their chosen affiliation model, played a big part in my inclusion on this list.”

Avantax believes that its range of flexible affiliation options and its commitment to the success of its Financial Professionals are key to attracting and retaining independent Financial Professionals. The firm’s flexible affiliation models include:

  • Independent broker-dealer for tax and wealth management professionals to whom independence is paramount.
  • Multiple referral models for tax professionals who prefer a partnership or affiliation model through which their clients’ financial planning needs are met.
  • An employee-based model serving CPAs and tax professionals by partnering with Avantax’s in-house RIA.
