*The Five Star Wealth Manager list is created by Five Star Professionals. The list represents wealth managers in the Atlanta area. The selection was a result of a rigorous process that included a regulatory and consumer complaint review and an evaluation of 10 objective criteria such as credentials, experience and assets under management among other factors associated with wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients. This recognition is from the largest and most widely published wealth manager award program in North America. Wealth Managers do not pay a fee to be included in the research or final list. Working with a FIVE STAR Wealth Manager does not guarantee investment success.
“As client centered, independent fee-based planners, our team focuses on what’s important to you. We’re interested in establishing trust and confidence, and building lasting relationships.”
