We set expectations to exceed them, and we work hard to ensure that at the end of every meeting, our clients are happy and know they have received extraordinary value.

Right Idea,

Right Time,

Right Person.

New Chapter.

It might come as a bit of a surprise that Houston-based Weaver, the parent company of Weaver Capital Advisors and a national CPA firm, would launch an independent financial advisory firm. But Weaver is known for its comprehensive approach to serving clients, and in its 70+ year history has built a reputation on doing just that.

Some advisory firms talk about values but don’t deliver. People who care are few and far between. After the workday, they go home. They don’t study the markets, think about their clients or respond quickly to their questions. All advisors may have access to the same products, but what’s different about the Weaver team is that we deliver more than you expect. We listen to truly understand you as an individual and cultivate relationships that matter.”
