In the complicated world of finance, few firms can compete with Davos Financial Group (DFG). Their strong leadership and commitment to excellence have made it possible for customers throughout Latin America to invest confidently with the rest of the world. What began as an investment advisory firm has grown into a group of affiliated companies that offer wealth management, real estate consulting, investment banking and trust services. This was all made possible because of founder and CEO, David Osio.
A native of Venezuela, Osio obtained his law degree at Andres Bello Catholic University in Caracas, where he also took courses in banking and finance. After graduating with honors, he went on to work for the MGO law firm in Caracas, providing legal advice to corporate clients and eventually becoming its director. In the years that followed, he completed another specialized education program at Caracas’ Institute of Higher Administration Studies. He then went on to study portfolio management and banking at the New York Institute of Finance.
With all this education behind him, it wasn’t long before Osio was climbing the managerial ladder at the Latino International Bank (BLI) in Miami, Florida. After two years of working in the company’s Private Banking Division, he went on to become their Vice President of Commercial Banking. His efforts at BLI resulted in steady portfolio growth and helped strengthen their position in the world of global finance.
By 1993, Osio had decided it was time to take everything he’d learned and create a company of his own. The result was a group of independent companies designed around the needs of the Latin American market. It’s worth noting that the Davos Financial Group was the first comprehensive financial advisory firm to come out of Venezuela. Through its various companies, it has gone on to establish locations around the world, including New York, Miami, Lisbon, Panama and Geneva.
Each of the group’s companies maintain agreements with some of the world’s biggest and most important banks. These agreements are the product of years of dedication to the financial services industry with strict adherence to international banking standards and regulations. This is in keeping with Mr. Oslo’s strong belief in corporate responsibility.
Aside from his work with DFG, David Osio is also a member of the Miami Symphony Orchestra. He is involved with various charities including the Children’s Orthopedic Hospital in Venezuela, as well as the Wayuu Taya, UMA and Fundana foundations. Mr. Osio and his companies have received various awards from around the world, including the Medal of Honor of the United States Congress and “Best Offshore Corporate Service Provider,” by New Europe Magazine. http://www.officialdavidosio.com/
