Amber Seale

CFP®**, CLU®, CPA*, CDFA™
Managing Director

Amber has been in the financial services industry for over 25 years. She began her career at Ernst & Young, auditing some of the largest companies in the world. In 2001, she channeled her CPA background and inner spreadsheet to help families plan for their financial future. She enjoys serving Executives, Business Owners, Women, and High Net Worth families who appreciate her high-touch personal approach. She attended the Barron's Top Women's Advisors Summit and her efforts were recognized in 2022 by Forbes “Best-in-State Wealth Advisors”# and in 2022 Forbes “America's Top Women Wealth Advisors Best In State.” ^

Personally, Amber enjoys spending time with her three daughters and does her best to find shoes that everyone likes! When she's not with the girls she enjoys yoga and on rare occasions, a weekend nap. With a passion to learn and a love of people, she and her husband formed Seale Wealth Management. Both met and graduated from the University of Texas in Austin. She graduated summa cum laude with both a Bachelor of Business and Masters in Professional Accounting.

Amber has served in many roles at Highland Park United Methodist Church and was on the host committee for Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center and the Clayton Dabney Foundation (benefiting kids with cancer). She loves participating in the National Charity League with her girls. Amber was asked to be a panel speaker for Women Doing Well, an organization promoting philanthropic giving and is regularly invited to speak at National Raymond James conferences. She has been awarded a seat on both the firm’s Technology, Sustainability, and Executive Councils, which meet with Raymond James top management team quarterly.

Amber has a heart for teaching women and making complex financial terms easy to understand. “It’s been a joy to be invited to teach Basics on Investments at HPISD and in the community over the last 25 years. I love seeing others eyes light up when they understand a topic they never enjoyed," Seale says.

#The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years of experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Out of approximately 34,925 nominations, more than 6,550 advisors received the award. This ranking is not indicative of an advisor's future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients' experience. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors or RIA firms pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Raymond James is not affiliated with Forbes or Shook Research, LLC.

^The Forbes ranking of America's Top Women Advisors was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person, virtual and telephone due diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively, a major component of a ranking algorithm that includes: wealth advisors with a minimum of 7 years of experience, client impact, industry experience, review of best practices and compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Research Summary (As of February, 2022) 34,500 nominations were received based on thresholds and 18,465 Advisors were invited to complete the online survey. 13,549 Advisors were interviewed by telephone, 2,610 Advisors were interviewed in-person at the Advisors' location, 1,203 were Advisor web based interviews, and 1,377 women won.
