MarketCounsel Recognized by Inc. Magazine as One of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies for 5 Years Straight

Englewood, N.J. – September 2, 2011 – For the fifth straight year, Inc. magazine has named MarketCounsel in its annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country.  By making this list five times, MarketCounsel, a leading provider of comprehensive business and regulatory consulting services to independent registered investments advisors, is part of an exclusive club of enterprises recognized by Inc. Magazine as the most innovative, dynamic and successful in the nation.

MarketCounsel has ranked on the Inc. 5000 list every year since the magazine expanded its rankings from 500 to 5,000 in 2007. MarketCounsel was established in 2000 to meet the growing demands of entrepreneurial, independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) by bringing together the industry’s best regulatory compliance experts, investing in state-of-the-art technology systems, and delivering it within an extraordinary service platform.  “That’s what the preeminent money management, investment management, and financial planning firms were looking for,” said Frank Pizzichillo, MarketCounsel’s Director of Business Development.

“We are honored to be a part of so many great American success stories – enterprises that have figured out ways to grow their business despite significant economic challenges,” said Brian Hamburger, Founder and Managing Director of MarketCounsel.  “Over the past few years, we have made several strategic acquisitions and have grown our team with the sole focus on delivering trusted counsel and innovative solutions to the complex business challenges faced by independent investment advisors.”

The Inc. 5000 is an extension of the Inc. 500 list that was first introduced in 1982. The list includes the Inc. 500 but digs deeper to offer the most comprehensive look at the entrepreneurial engine driving the U.S. economy.
