Our Story and Services

The Donohue Group: Knowledge, Experience, Commitment

The Donohue Group is a team of Financial Advisors and other professionals, serving clients from coast to coast. We focus on wealth management strategies that are customized to help meet each client’s needs and objectives. Moreover, we look beyond daily headlines and frequent market fluctuations to create investment portfolios that help our clients make progress toward their goals. 

Our core principles are designed to withstand all types of market cycles. We maintain a conservative and disciplined approach, paying particular attention to risk management and the risk tolerance of each individual. This approach has served our clients well for many years, in our view. We take tremendous pride in our reputation for being dedicated and committed to our client’s success. We are not only passionate and love what we do, but we take a personal interest in our clients, their goals and their families. 

Where change is constant, experience is invaluable. The Donohue Group has been helping people achieve their objectives for over 30 years. As further evidence of our effectiveness, Mark Donohue, the founder of The Donohue Group, has historically been recognized as one of the top-rated financial advisors by a number of premier industry publications and organizations.
