There are 100,000+ independent financial advisors in the U.S. The Investopedia 100 spotlights the top advisors in the country. In 2021, Peter Lazaroff was awarded the #10 spot.
Peter Lazaroff, CFP® and Cheif Investment Officer at Plancorp was named the #10 top financial advisor in 2021 by Investopedia.
Each year, Investopedia chooses the top 100 advisors in the United States who demonstrate a top-of-the-industry ability to further financial education with their published work, appearances, online following, and commitment to financial literacy across diverse communities. The Investopedia 100 also heavily weighs peer-to-peer nominations, highlighting the most influential advisors who were recommended by their peers.
It’s an incredible honor to be recognized alongside such a great group of advisors, all of whom are making important contributions to making financial advice more accessible.

Peter plans to continue his contribution to financial education through his weekly articles on his website, PeterLazaroff.com, his podcast The Long Term Investor, and numerous interviews on podcasts, and national television.
My goal for the future is to help even more people. I will obviously continue to write, but I’m also launching a podcast in response to those that find audio more convenient and easier to consume. I’m also looking forward to taking some of my newest educational speaking content on the road as conferences and events begin heating up.

Investopedia’s proprietary methodology focuses on awarding financial advisors who have demonstrated a top-of-the-industry ability to reach the largest and most relevant financial and investing audience, as measured by the impact and quality of their published work, public appearances, and online following. The 2019 Investopedia 100 also heavily weighed peer-to-peer nominations, highlighting the most influential advisors who were recommended by their peers. We receive no compensation from placing advisors on our list, nor does an advisor’s appearance on our list constitute an individual endorsement by Investopedia of such advisor.
