Burleson, TX (PRWEB) June 27, 2016 -- Five Star Professional is pleased to announce Jeremy Walker, Maverick Wealth Management, has been chosen as one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s Five Star Wealth Managers for 2016.
Five Star Professional partnered with Texas Monthly to recognize a select group of Dallas/Fort Worth-area wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients. Jeremy Walker is featured, along with other award winners, in a special section of the August issue.
“Once my injuries became too plentiful to remain competitive, it became clear I was not going to play professional sports. I then went to college to do just this. Numbers and finance always came easy to me, and I loved the challenges of problem-solving. I was able to obtain my first degree (BBA) in financial planning and my second degree in insurance to help with comprehensive financial planning,” says Jeremy Walker of Maverick Wealth Management.
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.
“Thank you for the faith and trust you enlist in us daily. We take great pride in protecting, growing and managing your assets, but we most value our relationships with each and every one of you,” says Jeremy.
“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.
