My investment and financial planning experience is extensive, but I think what sets me apart is my commitment to understanding each client’s situation and aspirations, and then tailoring a strategy to help them get there.”, said Dave Schaper of Benchmark Wealth Management. “Being named as a Five Star Wealth Manager demonstrates our commitment to placing our clients’ best interest first and helping them gain confidence in their financial future.”

“Five Star Wealth Managers”

The 2016 Five Star Wealth Manager award is a distinction awarded to a select group representing less than 7% of the wealth managers in the Orange Coast area.

Although this list is a useful tool for anyone looking for help in managing their financial world or implementing aspects of their financial strategies, it should not be considered exhaustive.  Undoubtedly, there are many excellent wealth managers who, for one reason or another, are not on this year’s list.

In order to consider a broad population of high-quality wealth managers, award candidates are identified by one of three sources:  firm nomination, peer nomination or pre-quaification based on industry standing.  Self nominations are not accepted.  Orange Coast award candidates were identified using internal and external research data, including a survey to thousands of registered financial services professionals and all identified financial services companies in the area that are registered with FINRA or the SEC.

Award candidates who satisfied 10 objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with wealth managers who provide quality services were named 2016 Five Star Wealth Managers**.
