In 1999, Tim Delaney saw an opportunity to help his CPA firm’s clients by providing sound financial planning. He presented it to his two CPA partners and in 2000, JDH Wealth was born.
JDH was created to provide a disciplined, academically-based investment experience tailored to address each client’s distinct willingness, ability and need to accept market risk in the context of their specific situation and goals. Offering an advisor relationship built on personal trust and integrity, JDH serves as a Registered Investment Advisor to individuals, businesses, foundations, endowments, trusts, partnerships, not-for-profit organizations and retirement plans.
We believe that strategic vision can be achieved when there is a commitment to a long-term plan. We begin our relationship with you by building a holistic picture that encapsulates your core values, your dreams for the future, and your entire financial situation. We then establish and review a written investment policy statement based on that picture. You’re more than a balance sheet at JDH. We assess your current financial situation and help you gain consensus on goals and guidelines to inform the ongoing management of assets because peace of mind starts with understanding.
We value building relationships with our clients
At JDH Wealth Management we value building relationships with our clients. We also strive to always be at the forefront of the financial world and continually provide education for our clients. These two aspects of our client interactions – building relationships and providing education – are an integral part of our JDH culture.
We always enjoy inviting our clients to our annual events. These events are a time when we can get to know our clients – and they can get to know us. An afternoon or evening spent with food, refreshments, and our clients is always enjoyable. We also enjoy taking these events as an opportunity to allow our clients to hear different speakers from around the country present on various topics.
JDH Wealth enjoys hosting both client and community events ranging from wealth management seminars to picnics at Transcendence Theatre Company’s “Broadway Under the Stars” annual summer event. In hosting educational events featuring leading national minds in finance, we strive to demystify the world of investing and make the principles of our investment philosophy transparent. On the lighter side, we love connecting with our clients through social events where advisors and clients get a chance to mingle together and enjoy each other’s company away from the office.
JDH strives to be an outstanding corporate citizen and to give back in appreciation to the community in which we live and work.
As Sonoma County locals, we were here as fires swept through our neighborhoods. We found, as many have, that there is no substitute for a strong network of people who care for and about each other. We take it upon ourselves to be the kind of company we would be proud to work with – one that works as part of the whole instead of in isolation. We’ve partnered with Transcendence Theatre Company for many years now to help them in their mission of bringing world-class entertainment to our community while building a financial foundation upon which gems like Jack London State Park are able to stay open in the face of funding shortages. We’re proud to be annual supporters of the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Beyond our corporate face, we’re involved in our communities through volunteer positions with non-profits and and memberships in local civic organizations.

Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA)
Dimensional’s investment approach is based on a belief in markets. Rather than relying on futile forecasting or trying to outguess others, they draw information about expected returns from the market itself—letting the collective knowledge of their millions of buyers and sellers set security prices. JDH uses DFA funds to provide academically-based investment strategies to our clients.

Stone Ridge believes that markets work, so let the intentional risks they bear deliver the desired returns. Guessing the future is no way to build long-term wealth – Stone Ridge believes taking intelligent, controlled, and diversified risks is a far more reliable strategy.
