My Story and Services

Dennis P. Berry

Even before he was a Police Officer with the North Little Rock Police Department, Dennis demonstrated what it meant to protect and serve.  He served in the United States Marine Corps 1989-1996 and is a decorated combat veteran of Desert Storm.

Dennis began his financial advisory career at Merrill Lynch in 1999 and later joined Morgan Stanley in 2004. He continues to help protect and serve the needs of clients seeking comprehensive wealth management and personalized investment management strategies.

Dennis believes a comprehensive wealth strategy is the hallmark of achieving your personal financial goals.  Defining your goals, formulating a strategy and performing ongoing due diligence is the process Dennis utilizes with his clients.

As the former manager of Morgan Stanley’s Shreveport branch (2010-2015) and the Hot Springs, AR branch (2016-2018), Dennis understands how to help his clients and other advisors access the firm’s vast breadth of resources and capabilities that can have an immediate impact on, and role in creating and implementing their individualized wealth management strategies.  

When not working hard for his clients and the advisors in his branch, Dennis, his wife, Natalie, and children Chase and Juliana, give back to their community by providing a safe home for foster children in need through The CALL.
