The Importance of Maintaining Investment Discipline Amidst Political Dysfunction and Uncertainty

As we write this letter in the first days of the new fiscal year, much of the federal government has shut down for the first time in 17 years.  This situation resulted from Congress failing to pass a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government for the next several months.  House Republicans have adopted a hard line, insisting that any CR be accompanied by significant cutbacks and/or delays in the implementation of the

Dowling & Yahnke is proud to recognize Bernadette Delaney’s 20-year tenure with the Firm.

In 1991, Dale Yahnke and Mark Dowling established the firm knowing there was a better way to manage investments for private individuals and institutions. Bernadette joined the team in 1993. She has been instrumental in the development of the client service culture and administrative foundation which the firm leverages today. The team has grown to 29 employees, but it all started with Mark, Dale, and Bernadette.  

RIA Stands for You

Mark Dowling and Dale Yahnke founded our firm 20 years ago when the Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) model of providing financial advice was in its infancy. In the early 1990s, RIAs offered investors an independent alternative to the then predominant sales-oriented, broker-driven model of investment advice. As fiduciaries, RIAs are duty-bound to put clients’ interests first. In addition to acting as a fiduciary, Dowling & Yahnke seeks to minimize potential conflicts of interest by operating as a fee-only investment advisor.

In the Community

Dowling & Yahnke is strongly committed to the community. Our team devotes service hours, in addition to financial support, to numerous worthy causes each year. We feel that it is important to take time to support the neighborhoods, community, and city in which we live and work.  Giving back is something that we can all do in some form. We recently participated in the 14th Annual Telethon for the San Diego Humane Society.
