Why you can trust our team

We’re on your side

We work hard for you. We do everything as a team, which means you get the benefits of all our brains—not just one person.

We do our research

We welcome your questions. We do all our own research, and we keep you informed and educated about where your money is invested and why.

We take the long view

We plan way ahead, always keeping you and your goals in mind with every decision we make. We promise to put you first, keep you informed, and help you plan for the life you want.

Our values

Our goal is quality research and a customized portfolio. To reach those objectives, we have to be committed to our values and to the person behind the money.


We’re centered around people, not just the numbers. It’s not merely about growing your wealth. Rather, it’s about using your money to support the life you want, whatever that may look like for you. That’s why we stay focused on the people behind the numbers, and why we’re dedicated to finding personal solutions that work for you and your life.


We do our research the old-fashioned way: in-house and in-depth. We personally research the companies we invest in—before we invest in them. That means diving deep into annual reports, talking to decision makers, and even visiting in person to get a feel for the place. It also means no outsourcing our research—it’s all done right here at our office in Lexington, because it’s the right way to do things.


Knowledge leads to understanding. When you know where your money is invested and why, you don’t have to let fears dictate your investment decisions. It’s our job to educate you about your investments. We’ll update you every time we meet, and you can talk to us anytime. No mysteries and no smoke and mirrors—just transparency, honesty, and a level of understanding to help you sleep better at night.


We believe in long-term relationships and long-view investments. The recipe for a successful retirement: start planning early and plan for the long-term. At Dupree Financial, we’re here to be your partner for the rest of your life—we want to get to know you better and better. We’re not in this for risky, short-term gains, and we hope you’re not either. We’re in this to help you manage your money for a lifetime.


If something isn’t working, we’re not afraid of changing it. The market is ever-changing, and we’re evaluating our investments along the way to make sure they’re still working for you. If we get new information, if the markets adjust, or if something just isn’t performing the way we hoped, we’ll talk it over with you and make a change.
