BISMARCK, N.D. – January 12, 2015 – Investment Centers of America® (ICA) announced that three of its financial advisors were recognized by Bank Investment Consultant (BIC) in its annual “Top 50 Bank Advisors” ranking. ICA provides broker-dealer services including customized practice management support and innovative technology platforms for all three practices.
The recognized financial advisors located in a bank include:
#23: Kevin Dunnigan of Home State Bank in Loveland, Colorado
#48: Randy Quale of First International Bank in Watford City, North Dakota
#68: Paul Hummel of Home State Bank, in Loveland, Colorado
BIC determines the top 50 ranking using a weighted average from six different categories, including 2014 assets under management (AUM), trailing 12-month production, percentage change in AUM from the previous year, percentage change in trailing-12 production, amount of fee-based business and the ratio of production to AUM. By analyzing several different metrics in a practice the ranking provides the full picture of an advisor’s value.
“It is inspiring to see how committed these advisors are to creating a better financial future for the communities they serve,” said Greg Gunderson, president and chief executive officer of ICA. “We are honored to work with them to help their clients achieve their financial goals.”
For the past 23 years, Dunnigan has been named a top producer for ICA, based on GDC. He told BIC that he believes in treating his clients as if they were his personal friends or family members.
Randy Quale has served the same bank in Watford City for the past 28 years. In 2014, he was named “Representative of the Year” at the ICA National Conference, recognizing his success as an experienced advisor providing comprehensive financial planning.
Paul Hummel said he hopes his clients regard him not only as a financial advisor, but as someone who cares as much about their financial well-being as they do. His office, which he shares with six other ICA advisors, including Dunnigan, was recently recognized as No. 1 (based on GDC) out of more than 250 ICA offices nationwide.
