Quigley Financial, LLC provides comprehensive wealth management services to individuals and small businesses. We specialize in asset management, tax planning, retirement and employee benefits, estate planning and insurance. Quigley Financial is a fee-only financial planning firm. We do not sell products. We provide a service. Quigley Financial accepts compensation from no entity other than from our clients. We believe this is the only way to create a long term client/advisor relationship based on trust, where the advisor's goals are clearly aligned with those of the client.
The world of finance has historically been controlled and manipulated by large financial institutions and insurance companies, whose goals have rarely matched those of their customers. During the last decade, the idea of a financial planner who is actually a fiduciary of the client has taken hold. A fiduciary is required at all times to act in the best interests of the client. As a Certfied Financial Planner®, a registered investment advisor, and member of the National Association Of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), Quigley Financial always acts as a fiduciary of the client, that is, we always place the client's best interests first.
Desmond Quigley is the president and founder of Quigley Financial, LLC. Des grew up in New Jersey. He graduated from the U. S. Naval Academy in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. Des spent the next decade serving his country as a Naval Aviator flying the A-6 Intruder and the F/A-18 Hornet. After leaving the service, Des went to work as a pilot for Delta Air Lines.
Des founded Quigley Financial in 2004 as a Fee-Only investment planning and tax service. Quigley Financial has since grown into a full service comprehensive wealth management firm. Des entered the financial planning profession to make a difference in people’s lives. He has generally regarded the traditional sales-based financial business as an industry not to be trusted, with salesmen working for commission on the investment products they sell. This model has historically abused the American public with confusion and complexity, with at best minimal government oversight. Des believes strongly in the Fee-Only approach to investment advising and financial planning. Des Quigley and Quigley Financial will never accept compensation in any form from any entity other than their clients. Des believes an educated client guided by a skilled advisor creates the best road to financial independence.
Des holds the distinguished Certified Financial Planner® certification, as well as the Enrolled Agent (EA) designation, certifying that he is enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service. Des is a graduate of the College for Financial Planning CFP® Certification Professional Education Program. He is a member of the nation’s premier association of Fee-Only financial planners, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), as well as the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA). He is a registered investment advisor representative for Quigley Financial LLC in the state of Georgia.
Des lives in Peachtree City, GA and Bluffton, SC. He enjoys outdoor activities and traveling, but most of all likes to spend time with his wife, Sandra, and his two children: daughter, Catie, and son, Jack.
