"It's a tough competition. Producing the most isn't enough on its
own," said Howard Stock, editor of Bank Investment Consultant, in his
editor's letter. "We factor in retail deposits at the branches an
advisor covers, to level the playing field. After all, an advisor
covering branches with $1 billion in deposits has access to more
clients through referrals than an advisor covering branches with $100
million in deposits. Therefore, our top advisors get kudos not just
for their productivity, but for making the most out of what they have
to work with."
"We are very fortunate to have these exceptional individuals on
our team," said Dan McCormack, senior vice president of USBI. "This
achievement provides these professionals and their colleagues with
well deserved recognition for the great value they bring to their
clients each day. U.S. Bancorp delivers the very best in wealth
management capabilities to the market. When you team those
