Top Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisors (2023)

Forbes names Ernie Burns as one of Louisiana's top Financial Security Professionals.

Forbes Top Financial Security Professionals 2022 is a ranking of financial professionals conducted by Forbes through the SHOOK evaluation process. To be considered by Forbes, Ernie Burns was nominated by an insurance carrier he sells annuities through. Financial Security Professional (FSP) refers to professionals who are properly licensed to sell life insurance and annuities. FSP may also hold other credentials and licenses which would allow them to offer investments and securities products through those licenses. References to security refer only to the benefits of insurance products, not to investments. Insurance products are backed by the financial strength and claims paying ability of the issuing carrier.
