Scott MacKillop offers a view on industry awards contrary to Bob Veres, who took the Luminaries, Wealthies and others to task for editoral/sales conflicts

'We see them as merit based. If we win an award or receive recognition as a finalist, we feel that it means something.'

I respect both Bob and Scott. Each have good points. My 3 cents is too many investors rely on awards, when choosing advisors/advisers, many of which are fake.

Great point concisely said, Eric. I thank RIA Biz for having this "point / counter point" discussion with two real stars in their fields. Such discussions are too rare today as legal ambiguity, polarized talking points or sales pitches dominate.
