About John F. Davenport

Davenport and Associates in 1997 and still serves as their President. Davenport and Associates focus on wealth management for retirees and pre-retirees.

With an MBA in Finance, a law degree, and over twenty years of experience in his field, John F. Davenport is the right choice for your financial needs. Davenport and his team at Davenport & Associates guide their clients through retirement and pre-retirement. John takes a different and unique approach to wealth management. Rather than focusing on the rate of return, Davenport puts his focus on maximizing income and tax-free wealth.

Davenport and Associates use a four-pronged approach: maximize income, maximize legacies, minimize taxes,  and direct social capital to a charity or an heir. Davenport and his team believe that interactions between clients and brokers often compare the growth investments a client already has and what the firm can offer them. This leaves out the possibility of discussing strategies that will help the client maximize their income, leaving them completely unaware of their options.

At Davenport & Associates, they will first measure your income potential, then maximize your income-producing assets. Next, John and his team will help maximize the transfer of your wealth. Finally, Davenport & Associates will monitor your wealth and maintain your records.
