Vickie Wise, BOK Financial Securities, Inc., is featured in a special section of the August issue of Texas Monthly as a 2016 Dallas/Fort Worth Five Star Wealth Manager award winner.

Five Star Professional partnered with Texas Monthly to identify and showcase an exclusive group of wealth managers who have demonstrated excellence in their field.

“It is a privilege to be part of this year’s list of award-winning wealth managers. I have been in the industry for more than 20 years and take great pride in what I do. I am dedicated to serving my clients through education, guidance and open communication,” says Vickie Wise of BOK Financial Securities, Inc.

The 2016 Five Star Wealth Manager award winners have been carefully selected for their commitment to providing quality services to their clients. The award is based on an in-depth research process incorporating peer and firm feedback with objective criteria such as client retention rates, client assets administered, industry experience and regulatory and complaint history.

“I have been in the investment services industry for 28 years, and I have also been a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional since 2008. We work diligently on our high-net-worth clients’ behalf to help them holistically with their financial lives, including not only investments but also estate planning, retirement planning, business succession planning, and risk management, among other things,” says Vickie Wise.

The Five Star Wealth Manager award program is the largest and most widely published wealth manager award program in the financial services industry. The award is based on a rigorous, multifaceted research methodology, which incorporates input from peers and firm leaders along with client retention rates, industry experience and a thorough regulatory history review.

“I am proud and honored to receive this award, as it is recognition of our professionalism and commitment to our clients, their families and our community,” says Vickie. “It is an honor and a privilege to be allowed into our clients’ lives as their trusted advisor. In our culture, sharing one’s personal financial information, issues and data implies a trusting, respectful and somewhat intimate connection, and as a trusted advisor, we do not take that relationship for granted.”

“Based on our evaluation, the wealth managers we recognize are committed to pursuing professional excellence and have a deep knowledge of their industry. They strive to provide exemplary care to the people they serve,” stated Dan Zdon, CEO, Five Star Professional.

The Five Star Wealth Manager award, administered by Crescendo Business Services, LLC (dba Five Star Professional), is based on 10 objective criteria: 1. Credentialed as a registered investment adviser or a registered investment adviser representative; 2. Active as a credentialed professional in the financial services industry for a minimum of 5 years; 3.

Fulfilled their firm review based on internal standards; 5. Accepting new clients; 6. One-year client retention rate; 7. Five-year client retention rate; 8.

Wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or awarded. Once awarded, wealth managers may purchase additional profile ad space or promotional products. The award methodology does not evaluate the quality of services provided and is not indicative of the winner’s future performance. 2,471 Dallas/Fort Worth wealth managers were considered for the award; 678 (28 percent of candidates) were named 2016 Five Star Wealth Managers.
