Wes Moss Recognized Among 2022’s 100 Most Influential Financial Advisors by Investopedia

ATLANTA – July 13, 2022 – Today, Capital Investment Advisors is proud to announce that partner Wes Moss has been named among the recipients of Investopedia’s sixth annual Investopedia 100 List of the Most Influential Financial Advisors honor. The Investopedia 100 celebrates financial advisors who are making significant contributions to critical conversations about financial literacy, investing strategies, life-stage planning and wealth management. With more than 100,000 independent financial advisors in the U.S., the Investopedia 100 spotlights the country’s most engaged, influential, and educational advisors. 

The annual Investopedia 100 list honors financial advisors who have demonstrated top-of-the-industry skills in the following critical areas.

  • Reach: defined as digital presence across their own websites, social media, and other media platforms such as video and podcasts. 
  • Community support: measured through peer nominations by industry professionals outside of their own firms.
  • Commitment to financial literacy: measured by the advisor’s participation in workshops, programs, nonprofits or collaboration with others in the community to spread financial education to those who need it most, as well as the creation of accessible content.

All three factors weighed heavily in the 2022 Investopedia 100 methodology. According to Investopedia, applications were checked for accuracy and quality, and final scores were tabulated according to weights designated for each of the criteria above. Investopedia receives no compensation from placing advisors on their list, nor does an advisor’s appearance on their list constitute an individual endorsement by Investopedia of such advisor.

“Through more than two decades of working with clients, I’ve been committed to helping people retire both sooner and happier. By creating the Retire Sooner podcast, hosting my long-time radio show, and even writing books like What the Happiest Retirees Know (McGraw Hill 2021), I’ve dedicated a huge part of my career to financial literacy and education. I truly appreciate Investopedia for recognizing me as part of this list of advisors,” said Wes Moss.
