Chris focuses on portfolio management oversight through thoughtful allocation of liquidity and risk across asset classes and markets. His advice focuses on much more than investing—from estate planning strategies and family advisory to lending and private equity.
“On behalf of the firm, we’re proud that Chris has been named to this year’s list,” said Thomas Stacy, Texas Market Head at UBS Private Wealth Management. “This is an impressive accomplishment and a true testament to the work Chris does for our clients each and every day.”
Prior to his career in finance, Chris served in the United States Army as an Infantry Officer, and ended his military career as a Captain. A graduate from Southern Methodist University with a B.A. in Economics and the University of Houston Bauer School of Business with an MBA, Chris has been frequently recognized as a Top Advisor by various publications, including Barron's and Forbes.
This year’s Forbes/SHOOK Research Best-in-State Wealth Advisors list is comprised of over 5,000 Advisors across the country, managing more than $6 trillion in client assets. Each advisor is chosen based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative measures including phone and in-person interviews, compliance records, and revenue generated for their firms.
