Advisory services provided through TBH Global Asset Management, LLC



David Merrell – Partner | Advisor


David has been delivering Comprehensive Wealth Management solutions to clients for nearly 20 years. David founded TBH Global Asset Management, LLC in 2008 with his wife, Holly, after spending 11 years honing his craft at various public institutions. The desire to start TBH simply came from wanting to truly customize solutions based on each client’s situation and not fitting them into a one-size fits all category. TBH (Tortoise Beats Hare) is focused on listening to each client’s goals and then collaborating on the best solutions. David is an avid reader of anything Behavioral Finance and works with each client to understand their planning and investment biases. Understanding one’s biases relating to the markets can ultimately be the difference between success and failure. David graduated from the University of the South (Sewanee) with a B.A. in Psychology while playing football and baseball and coaching basketball at St. Andrews-Sewanee School. David holds the FINRA Series 65 license.
