Rep AUM allows users to assess the AUM of specific advisors, helping identify top-performing prospects. Industry rank provides a comparative analysis, showcasing how an advisor's AUM ranks against peers within the same industry. State rank offers a similar perspective but focuses on rankings within a specific state, aiding in localized prospecting efforts and understanding regional dynamics. These metrics empower individuals to make data-driven decisions and target advisors with the desired AUM and ranking characteristics for their business objectives.
