"As usual, I find the survey immensely useful, and amazingly consistent with our own experience financially in moving from a $100M firm in 2003 to $500M in 2007 to $5+B today… The numbers seem to hold true to my experience." - President, 2015 Survey Repondent, Southeast Region Firm

"Outstanding work.  It communicates well, tells the story, and leads us to good conclusions and questions." - Midwest Family Office
"The Operations & Compensation Survey provides extremely relevant insight into the inner workings of the Asset Management business. The survey addresses every key area of an Investment Adviser’s operation - enabling them to stay current on industry Best Practices and to keep pace with an ever-changing environment. We use the survey as a tool to measure ourselves against other industry participants, and to continually improve the Operations & Administrative infrastructure that is key to growing our business." - $4.0 billion (AUM) Midwest Institutional Investment Advisor  
"Accurate compensation data for the RIA industry has always been hard to come by. Aside from the occasional broad surveys conducted every year or two by Schwab or FAInsight, there are few data points for us to either use or cross-check against. Having participated in the AUG survey since its initial survey of 25 firms, we’ve found it a helpful tool to calibrate our compensation with our peers. And with 136 participating firms this year – and hopefully with additional firms in the future – the survey data has become even more statistically helpful with compensation, benefit programs, and business metrics." - Partner & Director, 2010 Survey Respondent Firm
