Who We Are

We are independent, yet part of a team. Our leaders bring out the best in each other, valuing and respecting the uniqueness and varied perspectives of one another.

Our History

In 2005, Russell (Rusty) Gebhard founded Sovereign Wealth Advisors upon an independent business model that allowed the company’s sole focus to be two-fold: provide clients with personalized service and support independent advisors with the tools needed to be successful. Established as a platform for clients and brokers alike, Sovereign Wealth Advisors serves as a place where they can thrive—where independence, leadership, and excellence are of utmost importance.

Sovereign Wealth Advisors serves clients nationwide and throughout southeast Texas. Many of the area’s top wealth consultants have joined Rusty to form a team whose senior management has over 300 combined years of experience. Since its origin, Sovereign Wealth Advisors has established itself as one of the fastest growing firms in Texas.
