David G. Decker

The Decker Williams Team has collective financial service experience dating back to 1979. The team offers individuals, families, business owners, executives and professionals tailored advice and guidance, effective communication and extraordinary service. Working as client advocates, we are dedicated to providing nothing short of exceptional personal service and consistent and disciplined wealth management. It’s why clients often call us first to discuss business purchases, mergers and sales, impending family changes, retirement or health concerns.

Our goal is to be the first call you make for all of your wealth management needs—large or small.

David has been with Merrill Lynch since 1979, following eight years of service as an officer in the U.S. Marines. As the founder of the Decker Williams Team, David works closely with retirees, entrepreneurs and other professionals to help them develop customized wealth management strategies. The vast market knowledge David brings to the team and to clients stems from over 30 years in the industry. During that time, David has built long-term, multigenerational relationships to help clients build, preserve and transfer their wealth.

Many of his clients have worked with David for more than three decades. Over the years, he has developed a meaningful understanding of the issues that impact their financial lives. He offers consistency and stability as he works with investors through various market cycles. David is dedicated to providing a high level of attentive service as he guides clients who are nearing or already in retirement through the entire retirement income planning process. 

David is a qualified Portfolio Manager who in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing their own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. When servicing clients through the firm's Investment Advisory Program, a Portfolio Manager may manage such strategies on a discretionary basis. Drawing on his deep knowledge of investments, David helps clients pursue their financial goals by striking a balance between their risk tolerance and financial objectives. He is particularly impactful to clients through his detail-oriented approach and rigorous investment selection methods. 

David earned a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Idaho. He currently serves as chairman of the board of the University of Idaho Operation Education Advisory Council, an organization dedicated to assist U.S. military personnel who have been severely wounded and permanently disabled while serving our country after 9/11, with an opportunity to earn a college degree.
