Douglas Brymer is a wealth advisor and President of Round Hill Wealth Management, a full service, independent investment management firm dedicated to helping enrich the lives of individuals, families and business owners at every stage of life. He brings more than 20 years of financial services experience in helping clients address their financial challenges and prepare for the financial future they desire.
Doug places great emphasis on the importance and well-being of family, in his own life and the lives of his clients. He views his clients as an extension of his own family and is a firm believer in taking the time to get to know and understand each client, their family dynamics and their goals before developing strategies that seek to help protect and grow their wealth. He embraces a disciplined, conservative approach to investing with a focus on tactical asset allocation and developing investment strategies designed with a goal of long-term growth potential while at the same time minimizing risk.
He places a high priority on educating his clients, taking complex concepts and simplifying them to ensure clarity in understanding the strategies he recommends and methodology being used in determining asset allocations and portfolio construction. Doug understands the important roles of psychology and risk tolerance as it pertains to each individual investor, and fiercely opposes the over-use of historical “theory” and generalization within the financial services industry today.
Doug earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, and holds two Masters degrees - including an MBA with a concentration in Finance from The Florida State University. He played baseball while at UMASS Dartmouth and later served as a Graduate Assistant with the Florida State Baseball team. His athletic prowess (or lack thereof) is now confined to a fledgling golf game squeezed into any time left over from family and staying on top of the increasingly complex financial markets.
Doug and his wife Lauren live in Naperville and have two children, Reagan and Logan, who are their absolute pride and joy. Having grown up on the coast of southeastern Massachusetts, Doug grew to love everything about the ocean, and tries to get the kids there whenever possible so they may grow to have the same appreciation for it. In fact, the firm’s name comes from “Round Hill” beach where Doug spent his summers growing up in North Dartmouth, MA.
