Delta Capital Management

Delta Capital Management (DCM) is a Licensed Investment Advisory Firm specializing in investment startegies that allow investors to participate in up market returns while providing protection when markets turn down.

DCM's team draws on over a century of combined experience working with advisers and their clients to help them achieve the financial goals for their retirement needs. "After years of research, we are comitted to provide advisors and their clients with excellent asset management and do it with an investment strategy they can understand", comments DCM Principal and CIO, Chuck Lombardo. "While many investment models take pride in layering multiple levels of complex strategies and calculations to impress clients and make investing seem complicated, our model does the exact opposite. We simplify the entire process and deliver expected market performance in up markets and avoid most down markets with our investment strategy. Investing does not need to be complicated to be successful."
