Chicago, IL – October 10, 2019 –Sheridan Road Financial, a division of HUB International is excited to announce that Michael Driscoll and Jim O’Shaughnessy have been named to the 2019 edition of the Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Advisers.

This is the fifth annual FT 401 list, produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the asset management industry. Financial advisers from across the US applied for consideration, having met a set minimum of requirements. The applicants were then graded on six criteria: DC assets under management; DC plan growth rate; specialization in DC plans; years of experience; advanced industry credentials; and compliance record. There are no fees or other considerations required of advisers who apply for the FT 401.

“It’s great to have Mike and Jim recognized for their work in the industry as FT 401 Top Retirement Advisers,” said Daniel Bryant, National President, Sales, Retirement and Private Wealth. “We are proud of the dedication they have to their clients, and the work they do that helps Americans Choose Their Day.”

The final FT 401 represents an impressive cohort of elite advisers: the “average” adviser in this year’s FT 401 has over 22 years of experience advising DC plans and manages $1.6 billion in DC plan assets. The FT 401 advisers hail from 38 states and Washington, D.C., and DC plans on average account for 81% of their practices’ total assets. The FT 401 advisers hail from 40 states and Washington, D.C., and DC plans on average account for 84% of their total assets under management.
