2015 Analysis: Who Produces the Most Engaging Client Content

We've been crunching the numbers and are happy to present the first annual analysis of the brands supporting financial services content marketing. This analysis looks at which brands are producing content that is shared by financial services professionals with their clients and networks — an indication of their attention to the evolving nature of content marketing and service model to intermediaries. The data is drawn from the Gainfully analytics, which was crunched from just under 900,000 data points. Over 4,200 individual advisors were involved in producing this data set. Anyway, to the rankings!
