Our Story



Why Doug Newport Wealth Management is now Our Investment Guy...

When I established Doug Newport Wealth Management in 2018, it was with the purpose of being able to even better serve my clients with the best possible investment products that I could.

Selecting Commonwealth as my RIA-Broker/dealer was the result of my extensive research to find the best company to help me achieve that purpose, and I couldn’t be more happy to be celebrating two years with them.

With that in mind, I’m excited to share with you that I have rebranded Doug Newport Wealth Management to Our Investment Guy. This simply means a new name—my office, contact info, and affiliation with Commonwealth will all remain the same.

Why? Being a financial advisor means more than just understanding finances—it means being a trusted partner to my clients who understands their unique situations and goals and has a passion for helping them.

One of the best indicators of client satisfaction is a referral to friends or family—and often, that conversation is started by them saying, “I’ve got an investment guy.” So, as I thought about my brand, I wanted something that truly reflected who I am, the purpose of my business, and my approach to relationship building—and from there, Our Investment Guy was created.

To my clients—a sincere thank-you for your continued business and your trust in having me as your investment guy.
