Keel Point is the joining together of families and advisors to achieve each family’s mission, vision, values and goals. 

15 years ago, a group of successful families came together with David Parks and his team to create a firm to serve the global financial, estate, tax, business and philanthropic needs of the wealth-creators and their spouses, children and children’s children. 

About the same time, Robert Mayes left a large financial institution to establish a firm which could more faithfully serve the financial, estate, education, retirement and tax needs of his family clients

In 2015, the two firms came together to form Keel Point, a wealth advisor to families, companies, endowments and foundations. Later that same year, Keel Point was joined by teams in Chattanooga and Huntsville which saw in Keel Point the opportunity to better serve their current and future clientele.

Keel Point is a community of families who believe that wealth comes with the opportunity to be a blessing to family and community, and of experienced professionals dedicated to providing families with guidance and wisdom around their financial lives.

Keel Point brings to each client, small and large, the best of its diverse heritage: financial and strategic advice for families just starting out and for families with multi-generational wealth, and investment management designed to allow each family to reach their financial goals.
