About Us

A Personal Approach to Investing

In 1997, ML&R Wealth Management was established as a subsidiary of Maxwell Locke & Ritter, the largest locally owned and managed accounting firm in Central Texas. For over 25 years, our firm of wealth management advisors has helped individuals, families, businesses, and non-profits with their personal, unique financial needs.

At ML&R Wealth Management, we take investing personally. Your advisor will work to develop a lasting relationship with you, keeping in touch to understand your changing goals and providing an asset management strategy to help achieve them. Whenever you need sound financial advice, you have a direct line to a trusted advisor.

We believe in accountability and transparency and operate as a fee-only advisor with fees calculated solely on assets under management. We typically work with high-net-worth clients with account portfolios starting at $1 million. We know everyone’s circumstances are different, so please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

A wealth of resources

At ML&R Wealth Management, we work with each client using a personal and holistic approach to capitalize upon what is most important to you. Our wealth management services in Austin encompass a broad range of financial needs, including personal wealth management, financial freedom for women, corporate retirement & 401(k) plans, and investment strategies for institutions & non-profits. As a subsidiary of Maxwell Locke & Ritter, we can readily coordinate our wealth management services in Austin with their accounting services to address tax issues and any individual and business accounting needs.

We are believers in a long-term approach to investing, as demonstrated by the evidence-based investment model of Dimensional Fund Advisors, an independent investment management firm. Dimensional is headquartered in Austin, with offices in eight countries and $677 billion in global assets under management as of December 31, 2023, representing many of the world’s leading pension funds.

Our investment approach focuses on achieving diversification, controlling costs, and managing appropriate levels of risk. This evidence-based investment philosophy is rooted in academic research and our experience in working with clients over the past 25 years. Together, these methods provide us with a disciplined approach to long-term investing.

Ratings should not be considered an endorsement for the adviser by any client nor are they representative of any one client’s evaluation. Generally, rankings are based on information prepared and submitted by the adviser, or the amount of assets under management by the adviser.
