Dr. Derek Dion Lee

Financial Advisor 

(937) 407-7118

Dr. Lee, Ph. D in Finance, believes that Americans are plagued by three permanent financial threats: inflation, taxes, and lack of knowing what is out there now to help solve both.  

Finance is such a massive field. With so many competing forces and disconnected investment options. Perhaps what is toughest for the average individual and business owner when developing a financial strategy is understanding what matters, and when to worry about it.  

Dr. Lee’s professional mission is to partner with his clients to achieve their financial ability to live a good life for their whole life, while establishing a meaningful head start for their children with both assets and financial education.  

The opportunity Dr. Lee brings to his clients is providing them access to both the specialized brain trusts and the types of strategies that are otherwise reserved for the very wealthy. Coming from humble beginnings, Dr. Lee enjoys working with the salt of the earth. His passion is educating American families on all the different ways money works against them – so they can then see all the different ways money can work for them.  

Before moving to private practice in wealth management, Dr. Lee taught finance at Florida International University and Ohio Northern University. His research interests include currencies, monetary policy, and global risk. Dr. Lee (2018) shows that the raw currency returns from the portfolio carry trade predict returns to the MSCI World© Equity Index.
