Evensky & Katz (E&K) was awarded the prestigious Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. 2013 Trailblazer IMPACT Award™. The Trailblazer Award is one of three IMPACT Awards given annually to celebrate excellence in the independent investment advisory community. The award recognizes a firm for its entrepreneurial spirit and drive to advance the industry's interests.

"We are proud to be recognized as a leader in our industry," said Harold Evensky, President of E&K. "This acknowledgement is a tribute to our firm's extraordinary staff and our continued commitment to our clients, community and industry."

E&K was founded in 1985, and the firm has since grown into nineteen employees with offices in Miami, Florida and Lubbock, Texas. It is entrusted by its clients with 900 million in assets under management. The growth of E&K is attributable to a team of Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) practitioners that believe in a fiduciary, fee-only personalized approach to financial planning. These advisors have proven their commitment to the industry by serving in leadership positions with the Financial Planning Association, TIAA-CREF Investment Advisory Board and the CFP Board of Governors.

E&K continues to advance in the industry by seeking out and sharing best practices and ideas across the financial planning community and the education of future professionals. Deena Katz, E&K Chair, serves as a tenured Professor of Financial Planning at Texas Tech University and Harold Evensky holds the position of Professor of Practice in that program. Ms. Katz and Mr. Evensky have authored numerous books on wealth management, investing, practice management and long term care for professionals. Many have been translated into Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

E&K has developed a unique, team-centric approach servicing clients with a team of advisors that assists clients by providing uniquely customized advice. This structure also provides young planners a fantastic learning environment, solid career path and the ability to work side-by-side with more experienced advisors.

Working in the philanthropic arena has been a major initiative of E&K and all of its partners. As part of the Trailblazer IMPACT Award™ Evensky & Katz is proud to receive a donation of $15,000 from Charles Schwab & Co. The donation will be received by the Coral Gables Community Foundation for the Evensky & Katz Gift Fund and the Motivated Youth Program. Thus far the gift fund has disbursed $200,000 to local children's charities.

The Trailblazer IMPACT Award™ was presented to the E&K Executive Team on November 12, 2013 at the Schwab IMPACT® Conference in Washington, DC.

About the IMPACT Awards®
Independent registered investment advisors have fundamentally changed the financial services landscape by providing independent investment advice to high-net-worth investors. Established by Schwab in 2006, the IMPACT Awards recognize these contributions by honoring advisors and firms that have advanced the industry through their exemplary business practices.

The Best-in-Business IMPACT Awards™ goes to an independent investment firm that has been in business for at least 10 years and has a track record of growth and excellence, as well as best-in-class technology solutions that have helped expand market reach, responsiveness and operational efficiencies. The Pacesetter IMPACT Award™ pays tribute to a firm in business 10 years or less that has shown initiative, growth and promise, as well as a focused use of technology to extend its reach. The Trailblazer IMPACT Award™ recognizes an independent advisory firm that is setting new ground in the RIA space by combining entrepreneurial spirit with a drive to advance the industry's interests as a whole.

In addition to the IMPACT Awards, Schwab engages in a wide range of efforts to support and advance the independent advisory industry. Activities include donations to non-profit organizations and universities, as well as providing a voice in Washington, D.C., on regulatory and public affairs issues that matter to RIAs. Schwab Advisor Services also is the driver behind RIAStandsForYou.com, a multi-media advertising campaign supporting independent RIAs with the goal of increasing awareness of independent advisory model among high net-worth investors.
