Five Star Professional has named David McLaughlin as one of the New Hampshire recipients of the 2014 Five Star Wealth Manager award. The award winners appeared in a special section in the October issue of New Hampshire Magazine. Five Star Professional partnered with New Hampshire Magazine to conduct research to identify a select group of wealth managers who are exceptional in both their ability and their commitment to overall satisfaction. Approximately twelve percent of the 1,734 licensed wealth managers in the state of New Hampshire were selected.

A survey was provided to 237 high-net-worth-households in the state of New Hampshire. Survey respondents were asked to evaluate wealth managers they knew through personal experience and to evaluate them based upon ten criteria. Both negative and positive evaluations were included in the scoring. Only wealth managers with a minimum of five years of experience were considered. Each wealth manager was reviewed for regulatory actions, civil judicial actions and customer complaints as reported by regulatory agencies. The final list was reviewed by a panel of local financial services industry professionals.

Five Star Professional provides localized, independent client satisfaction research on the performance of service professionals. Five Star Professional conducts research with consumers, and industry peers and leaders, to identify service professionals who score highest in overall satisfaction. Award candidates also undergo a thorough regulatory review. Five Star Professional joins forces with city and regional magazines to make the research results available to consumers in 46 markets across the United States and now, Canada. Five Star Professional was founded in 2005 and is based in Minneapolis. For more information, go to:
