Spear’s 500 methodology

To assemble this unique directory, the Spear’s Research Unit conducts hundreds of interviews, analyses information supplied by companies and individuals in the Spear’s submission process, reviews data from third-party sources and gathers references and recommendations from clients and disinterested but knowledgeable specialist industry observers. All potential candidates for inclusion are independently scored using a proprietary framework, which underpins the tiered ranking system.

Each recommended adviser is profiled on, which allows users to search and filter the Spear’s database of almost 4,000 entities to find one (or more) to meet their specific requirements by searching or filtering for specific attributes such as an adviser’s location, their specialist expertise and information about their client base.
