Our History

Davis & Seiley Wealth Management traces its roots to 1994 when Marc Davis founded our firm. As a newly minted Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), he wanted to provide unbiased, comprehensive financial planning on a fee-basis and this wasn’t possible at the large financial services firm where he worked. So, as a twenty-seven year old, married father of three young children, Marc left corporate America and set up a boutique financial planning firm focused solely on one thing – helping his clients make wise financial decisions.

From these beginnings, Davis & Seiley Wealth Management has grown to serve more than 300 clients and manage close to $130M in client assets. Yet our focus on meeting the needs of each individual client has not changed. Our goal is very simple: To provide every client with personalized financial advice, tailored to their specific needs, goals and circumstances. By helping our clients be successful, we have become successful.   

We are deeply involved in all aspects of our clients’ financial lives. Our staff of five works closely with every client, on an ongoing basis, to help them achieve their goals over time. Our years of experience and expertise, coupled with our exceptional client service and unbiased advice helps each client enjoy financial peace of mind – knowing that they have trusted experts that are helping them regularly.
