Since our founding, Davis Capital Management has placed its client’s best interest first. We have long realized that if our clients and friends are to truly trust the advice we give, then our professionals must act with the highest level of integrity. The only way to ensure that all Davis Capital Management employees are living up to this standard is hold us all legally accountable and we would not have it any other way. So, while most other financial advisors and firms do what they can to avoid the fiduciary standard, we run to embrace it.
