Who is American Elite Advisory?

American Elite is a fee-only Registered Investment Adviser (RIA). The firm was established as Texas Elite Advisory, LLC in July of 2015 by our founder – Vern Bell. Originally, our firm was primarily focused on the securities institutional market. We licensed our Elite Relative Value Strategy (ERVS) to other RIAs. We still offer ERVS as one of many internally managed investment models. Today, our focus is on our Investment Adviser Representatives (IAR). Through our firm our IARs offer many models – both internally and externally managed. We partner with several Turnkey Asset Management Partners (TAMP) including Morningstar Investment Services, America Fund Service Company and Absolute Capital Management. We are open to new relationships our IARs bring to us.
