Generational Wealth Advisors (GWA), a member of the Generational Group, is proud to announce that five of its team have been named as Five Star Wealth Managers and are featured in the August issue of Texas Monthly Magazine.  

Five Star Professional conducts market-specific research to identify wealth managers who show a commitment to clients and demonstrate strong industry credentials. They also evaluate the quality of the wealth management firm’s current practice using 10 objective and eligibility criteria. Out of the 4,007 candidates considered, only 309 were selected, representing the top 8 percent. 

Founded in 2003, the Five Star award program is the largest and most widely published award program in North America, covering more than 45 major markets. Professionals recognized as award winners are published by Five Star Professional and its partners. Award winners cannot pay a fee to be included in the research or the final list of award recipients.

 “We are very pleased to have five team members included in this year’s Five Star Wealth Manager list, particularly our two newest additions to the list – Sarah Crowe and Bert Butkus. Choosing an investment advisor can be overwhelming and the Five Star research process provides a good starting point for selecting an experienced wealth manager,” said Brent Everett, Chief Investment Officer with GWA. 

Everett added, “We are proud and honored for our team to be honored and recognized once again.”

GWA recipients include:

  • Brent Everett, Founder and Chief Investment Officer: 11th Year in a Row

GWA helps assure they’ll be ready with a strategic wealth plan that supports the owner’s financial goals. The pre-exit financial planning includes tax planning, portfolio management, risk management, estate planning and education planning.

I am pleased that I was able to work with Andrew Byrd throughout this experience. From the first meeting we had in Minneapolis I felt that I was in good hands. His knowledge and expertise is second to none. He guided the process consistently throughout. I feel lucky that I was pared with Andrew and could not be happier that I chose Generational Equity to handle this major life event. Thank you Andrew and GenEq for everything!

I need to say an immense thank you to Don Ho for his stellar work ethic, attention to detail, and tireless effort. Also thank you to the whole crew at GE! Without you, Don could not do such a phenomenal job. We were shooting for closing and funding before the end of 2020, due to the uncertainty of the political landscape and taxes. I am happy to report we closed last week and will be funding tomorrow.
