Think Globally, Invest Globally.


David Wealth Management LLC is an independent, fee only, Registered Investment
Advisory firm based in Fairfax, Virginia, which provides financial planning and investment
advisory services throughout the greater Washington, DC area.

With significant wealth comes significant complexity. For more than 30 years, Jim David,
CPA, has been helping people make the most of their wealth through investment,
financial, and tax advice, as a Registered Investment Adviser, as a Certified Public
Accountant (CPA), and as a Personal Financial Specialist (PFS).

Unbiased investment advice stems from a fee-only financial structure. We receive no
compensation from any product recommended, nor do we represent any product or
company; we only represent you, our client.

We utilize globally diversified, low-cost and tax efficient portfolios. Emphasizing evidence
over emotions, we'll show you how to invest more confidently, with time on your side and
in a way that reflects your personal goals and risk tolerance.

Effective tax planning is essential to successful financial planning. The fundamental tax
knowledge that we as CPAs have, married with our planning and investment expertise,
makes a very powerful combination. It gives you and your family the greatest probability
for achieving your desired lifestyle and allowing for maximum wealth transfer.

My Services

Investment Management & Advice

Academic research has provided evidence that an investor's asset allocation, the selection of asset classes, which include US equities, Non-US equities, US fixed income and Non-US fixed income, and the portfolio percentage allocation to each, is the single most important element in a portfolio strategy. Asset allocation accounts for over 90% of a portfolio's performance. We offer both taxable and retirement investment portfolios that provide a wide range of equity and fixed income exposure levels.

Risk management

We recommend for you the portfolio determined to be the most appropriate and consistent with that of your personal goals, objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance. We use Riskalyze to assist us in determining your risk tolerance.
