1 Clients can rate an advisor or practice based on their overall satisfaction with the team or practice, on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 = extremely dissatisfied to 5 = extremely satisfied). Client experiences may vary and working with any Ameriprise Financial practice is not a guarantee of future financial results. Investors should not consider this rating a substitute for their own research and evaluation of a financial practice's qualifications. Not all clients may respond to these questions, and only clients with access to the Ameriprise Secure Client Site may submit a rating. Ratings reflect an average of all client responses received between 3/13/18 and 9/30/2018.
2 Ameriprise Financial was rated #1 in the investment industry for trust according to the Temkin Group 2018 Trust Ratings. The Temkin Trust Ratings (TTR) is an openly available loyalty benchmarking metric. When companies have earned trust, their customers are willing to believe their claims and are more inclined to work with the company. The TTR is based on consumer feedback of their recent interactions with companies. Consumers were asked “to what degree do you TRUST that these companies will take care of your needs?” Responses are on a scale from 1= “do not trust at all” to 7= “completely trust.” TTR is calculated by taking the percentage of consumers that gave a rating of 6 or 7 and subtracting the percentage that gave a rating of 1, 2, or 3. See www.temkinratings.com for more.
3 Ameriprise Financial was ranked #1 in the investment industry for customer loyalty according to the 2017 Temkin Group Loyalty Index. The Temkin Group Loyalty Index is an average of five loyalty ratings: repurchasing from the company, recommending the company to others, forgiving the company if it makes a mistake, trusting the company, and trying the company’s new offerings. The survey was fielded in January 2017 to 10,000 U.S. consumers, with quotas for age, income, ethnicity, and region to ensure that the distribution of respondents matched the U.S. Census data for the U.S. population. Consumers were asked to identify companies that they had interreacted with over the previous 90 days and were asked a series of questions about a random sample of those organizations, drawing from a total of 329 companies across 20 industries. For each company, the percentage of customers who considered themselves “very likely” to exhibit each of the five loyalty behaviors is determined. The Temkin Loyalty Index is then calculated by averaging the percentage of those five behaviors. See www.temkingroup.com for more.
4 Ameriprise is rated #1 in the investment firm category for customer service according to the Temkin Group 2017 Customer Service Ratings. The Temkin Customer Service Ratings (TCSR) is an openly available benchmarking metric for a critical customer interaction. The TCSR is based on consumer feedback of their recent interactions with companies. Consumers were asked to rate how satisfied they were with recent customer service experiences. Responses were on a scale from 1= “very dissatisfied” to 7= “very satisfied”. TCSR was calculated by taking the percentage of consumers that gave a rating of 6 or 7 and subtracting the percentage that gave a rating of 1, 2, or 3. See www.temkinratings.com for more.
5 Source: Wants & Pricing Report (April 2019) from the Hearts & Wallets Investor Quantitative™ Database. Hearts & Wallets conducts an annual syndicated survey in which respondents are asked to rate their financial services providers in a variety of areas on a scale of 1 (not at all satisfied) to 10 (extremely satisfied). In 2018, 5,441 respondents provided 8,748 sets of ratings. The report designates Hearts & Wallets Top Performer™ in areas where customer ratings for one or more provider are “distinctively higher than customer ratings of other providers.” In areas where no provider ratings are distinctively higher, no Top Performers are designated. This rating is not indicative of future performance and may not be representative of any one client’s experience, as the rating is an average of a sample of client experiences. Ameriprise paid a fee to Hearts & Wallets to cite the results of the survey.
