David Speck Among Barron's Top 1000

Former Alexandria City Councilman David G. Speck of Wachovia Securities, LLC, has earned a ranking among Barron's first annual Top 1,000 Financial Advisers nationwide and among the top five in Virginia.

Winner's Circle, a research organization recently acquired by Barron's magazine, produced the rankings, which consider advisers' assets under management, revenue generated for their firms, quality of service and regulatory records. The Top 1,000 is a first -time expansion of the magazine's traditional annual ranking of the Top 100.

"I am honored to be part of this group, which reflects the best in our profession," Speck said."The ranking also validates our focus at Wachovia Securities in building the strongest relationships by working together with clients, vesting ourselves fully in their success, and providing exceptional service, advise, and solutions every step of the way."

Speck and his partner, Tristan M. Caudron, form the Old Town Alexandria firm of Speck-Caudron Investment Group of Wachovia Securities, LLC. They are among 135 Wachovia Securities advisors on the list, the second highest total among brokerages.
