South Coast Metro (Santa Ana), Calif. October 17, 2023: Golden State is proud to announce its ranking on the Forbes America’s Top RIA Firms list for 2023. This second annual list has 250 advisory firms with cumulative assets of more than $1.1 trillion.

“We are honored to be recognized on such a prestigious list. This acknowledgement could not have been made possible without the hard work from each advisor on our team. We are thankful for the caliber of advisors at Golden State and for the dedication and commitment they give to their clients and the industry,” says Daniel R.
