Becker Financial’s portfolio management team has been serving investors throughout the country since 1979.

Douglas Becker, Senior Portfolio Manager, and President, began his career in the investment services industry at E.F. Hutton and Company in 1979 while working to complete his MBA in Finance at the University of Maine at Portland – Gorham.  In addition he has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics.

While maintaining his client relationships he served as Syndicate Manager, Regional Coordinator for Direct Investments, Sales Manager and Office Manager for major NYSE investment companies.

As a direct result in his desire to focus primarily on his individual client relationships he enrolled in a pilot program with a regional investment management company to develop individually designed and managed portfolio services for their clients and received the designation Portfolio Manager and Investment Advisor Representative for Advest, Inc..  In 1991 this specialization lead to the formation of DM Becker Investment Management Company, Inc. which was then registered with the Security and Exchange Commission as a Registered Investment Advisor. 

Over time the regulatory oversight responsibilities for RIAs has been undertaken by the various state security agencies and departments and currently DM Becker Investment Management Company, Inc. and Douglas Becker are licensed with the states of Maine and Florida.

Colin Becker began working with the company on a part-time basis in 2001 while completing his studies at the University of Southern Maine, majoring in Communication. He is currently employed as a registered trade assistant and customer service representative, interfacing with our clients.  In 2009 Colin received his Maine Life/Health Insurance producer’s license and is pursuing his FINRA Series 6 studies.
