Aurum Named to Financial Advisor Magazine's
All-Star Research Team

CLEVELAND – October 18, 2012 – Aurum Wealth Management's research team, led by director of research, Michael T. McKeown, CFA, CPA, has been selected to the 2nd Annual Financial Advisor/Private Wealth Due Diligence/Research Manager All-Star Team. The all-star team was recognized in the October 2012 issue of Financial Advisor and at the 2nd Annual Fiduciary Gatekeeper Research Summit on October 11-12 in Boston.

According to the publication, "When FA hunted for the cream of the crop among research management teams, these professionals made the all-star team, according to peers."

"To be selected as one of only eight members of this all-star team by our peer group is a validation of the rigorous investment management process Mike has instilled inside the firm," said Eric N. Wulff, managing director at Aurum. "We look forward to continuing to provide industry-leading research and service to our clients going forward."

In its October issue, Financial Advisor said the following about Aurum's investment approach, "Some jazz musicians like to play in two keys at the same time. Michael McKeown and his partners at Aurum Wealth Management Group also like mixing up modes, specifically using different investment styles to come up with something it calls 'Ultra Modern Portfolio Theory.' His research team's approach is to assemble multi-asset, multi-manager portfolios and diversify portfolios by risk."
