OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Jan. 13, 2020 - PRLog -- Ethel J. Davis, Founder and CEO of VZD Capital Management, LLC (, has been named as a recipient of's 2019 Thrive Award in recognition for being one of the nation's fastest-growing registered investment advisors.

"This national recognition means a lot to my firm and I. We're honored to be receiving this award alongside some of the nation's most elite financial advisors," Davis said. "Providing custom-tailored wealth management solutions to our clients is such a privilege, and we're proud to have grown so much alongside them."

The 2019 Thrive Awards lists were compiled by measuring percentage revenue growth over the previous three years.  The average revenue growth of Thrive Advisors is three times that of the overall industry.

"The Thrive Awards is unlike any other recognition program," said editor-in-chief David Armstrong. "Rather than acknowledging AUM or profitability, it recognizes advisors who are on the way up – those who have proven themselves skilled and ambitious by virtue of three solid years of revenue growth. We believe revenue growth is a metric that demonstrates advisor success in providing services of real value to clients and prospects, and key to building a sustainable business for the future. The Thrive Awards list is a publicly visible testament to that success."

To qualify for the 2019 Thrive Awards list, applicants had to be based in the U.S., offer financial services to individual clients, and be free of regulatory actions. The full list is published on and featured in the company's WealthManagement magazine.

Applications for the 2019 Thrive Awards list were accepted from individuals, teams, and companies of all types and sizes. "Given the competition, making the list in 2019 was a remarkable achievement," Davis said.
