Beaird Harris, a Dallas-based Certified Public Accounting and fee-only Wealth Management firm, is pleased to announce that Chase Perry, CFP® was recognized in the February edition of Fortune’s Five Star Wealth Managers Under 40 list for 2022.
Chase joined Beaird Harris’s Wealth Management Team in early 2020 and became a Partner in 2021. He works with high-net-worth individuals and families, leading them through all aspects of the investment management and financial planning process. His areas of expertise include tax efficiency, risk management, asset protection and charitable, trust and estate planning. He routinely meets with clients, advisors, and a myriad of professionals to help coordinate and implement effective planning strategies. Prior to joining Beaird Harris, Chase spent more than a decade with one of the largest financial service firms in the country, Fidelity Investments.
“A Wealth Manager is more than someone who manages portfolios – it is someone who helps clients plan for their future, and their children’s future. The advisor-client relationship is a vital piece of the puzzle, which is why it’s important to find the right Wealth Manager to work with for the long haul,” according to Fortune.
“Chase has been a fantastic asset to the firm and made incredible strides in just the two years he’s been onboard,” said Pat Beaird, Managing Partner of Beaird Harris Wealth Management. “He has quickly made himself an invaluable team member and this recognition by Fortune is a direct result of his commitment to excellence and providing clients financial peace of mind.”
Rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if Beaird Harris Wealth Management is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should it be construed as a current or past endorsement of Beaird Harris Wealth Management by any of its clients. Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser. A copy of Beaird Harris Wealth Management’s current written disclosure statement discussing advisory services and fees is available here.
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 prequalification based on industry standing.

Candidates do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final lists of Five Star Wealth Managers; however, Beaird Harris did pay a fee for Chase to be included in the Fortune publication.
