In 1921, Coleman Wortham, Sr., a great-nephew of the original Charles Wortham, became president and bought a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. Davenport & Company persevered despite the stock market collapse in 1929 and the Great Depression that followed.

Although almost a century and a half have passed since Davenport & Company was established, the values and positive spirit that characterized the firm in the 1800’s live on today. Over the years, Davenport has continued to grow and now provides a wide range of investment brokerage and investment advisory services to its clients.

For more than a century, Davenport & Company has been evolving as a leading financial services company. We pride ourselves on listening carefully to our clients. Daring to innovate. And adapting to marketplace trends.
