The Firm That Wall Street Calls

Dividend Asset Capital is a “Friends & Family,” Boutique Investment Firm Built on 40 years of Dividend Growth History and Expertise, and Firmly Established in the Heart of the Lowcountry.

In 2003, two Industry Giants became neighbors on Spring Island in the heart of the Lowcountry, and quietly brought under one roof some of the most historically recognized and impacting philosophies in the world of investment strategy. Today, we’re as committed as day one to our philosophy and to our personal connections with our family of investors.

Tom Cameron, widely known as “the Grandfather of Dividend Growth Investing,” and his Partner, Troy Shaver, developer of the “Double Digits for a Decade or More” (3D) Dividend Growth Philosophy, founded Dividend Assets Capital in 2003 on a commitment to delivering these proven philosophies with a friends and family approach. In the words of our CEO Troy Shaver, “we tend to think family before we think client.”

When you contact DAC you do so with the confidence in the 40+ years of industry-influencing expertise which launched and sustained the success of the firm. Now nearing 20 years of investing in our local community, we have secured an additional combined-century of experience in our portfolio of progressive professionals and are continuously pursuing new opportunities in an ever changing market, such as branching out into ESG investing where socially conscious clients have greater opportunities to “put your money where your value is.”

DAC’s influence is trusted by global investors and market leaders in part due to out track-record of out-performing competitive funds *.  Still, we’re committed to strengthening our heritage while advancing our potential – borrowing from and building on the legacy of our Founders as we move forward in serving the next generation through acquisitions of an impressive portfolio of talent.*

Offering national connections with local accessibility, we’re the firm that Wall Street calls, but our priority is you.
