Since the inception of the Five Star Wealth Managers ratings in 2009, Richard P. Slaughter Associates team members have been included in the ratings presented by Texas Monthly each year. And 2013 continues that trend with the most recent listings of top wealth managers in the Austin, San Antonio and Central Texas region.
“Providing outstanding service and wealth guidance to our clients is at the very core of our mission,” said Brooks Slaughter, President and CEO. “We are very honored to have received this award for the fifth year in a row, as it provides confirmation to us that our methods are sound and our service level is unsurpassed.”

To be honored, candidates must satisfy 10 objective eligibility and evaluation criteria in the wealth management arenas of business planning, estate planning, financial planning, insurance, investments and taxation. Less than 4 percent of the more than 8,000 registered financial services professionals in the Central Texas region that includes Austin and San Antonio were selected as Five Star Wealth Managers for 2013.
