DALLAS -- Five Star Professional has included 100 percent of Atlas Wealth Advisors’ financial consultants in its 2014 Dallas/Fort Worth Five Star Wealth Managers class.

Five Star Professional recognizes a select group of Dallas/Fort Worth area wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients.  Five Star Professional will team with Texas Monthly magazine to feature the recipients in a special section of its August edition.

The five Atlas Wealth Advisors chosen are Philip Athey, Scott Hammel, Adam Keller, Jay Marsden and Kyle Walters.

“We couldn’t be more proud to have all of our advisors achieve this recognition,” said Kyle Walters, managing director at AWA. “This validates our emphasis on being customer-focused and valuing continuing education by our advisors.”

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

The research behind the award is extensive with each wealth manager being thoroughly vetted from numerous angles, a Five Star spokesman said.

Athey and Keller are in the Richardson office of Atlas Wealth Advisors, while the other three work out of company headquarters north of downtown Dallas. AWA is a fee-based wealth management company whose goal is to build a lasting relationship and tailor a financial plan based on the client’s long-term objectives. AWA has partnered with WFG Investments, Inc., as its broker-dealer.

Five Star Professional conducts in-depth, market-specific research in more than 45 markets across the United States and Canada to identify premium service professionals. Wealth manager award candidates are identified through firm nominations, peer nominations and industry qualifications. They are evaluated on 10 objective eligibility and evaluation criteria, including client retention rates, client assets administered, firm review and a favorable regulatory and complaint history.

Self-nominations are not accepted and wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or awarded. The award is not indicative of the wealth manager's future investment performance. Detailed information on the Five Star Wealth Manager research methodology can be found at
