    About Me

    A professional in the financial services industry since 1984, Sergio began his career as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch.  It was there he met team member Tod Frick, where the two minds quickly discovered that by working together, they had the ability to combine strengths, abilities, and energies; enabling them to work more efficiently and effectively as a collective team of financial professionals.  The team expanded to include Leonardo and Francisco, moved to Morgan Stanley in 2010, and has been serving clients both nationally and internationally as the D’Oliveira-Frick-Dutra Group ever since.  

    As First Vice President and Senior Portfolio Manager, Sergio researches and develops income solutions for their team’s clients through extensive portfolio review.  What does he love most about his job?  Navigating his clients through all phases of their financial lives. 

    A native of Rio de Janeiro, Sergio received his Bachelor of Business Administration Degree from Escola de Administracao de Empresas de São Paulo.  He moved to the United States in 1978 and has lived in the Daphne area for over 25 years.  Sergio has also been a member of the Fairhope Rotary Club for over 20 years.  An avid fan of Brazilian football and a passionate music collector, Sergio also loves reading, coaching soccer, and spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren.

    About Me

    Beginning his career in wealth management with Merrill Lynch, Tod has been a financial advisor since 1992.  It was there he met Sergio, a native of Sao Paulo, Brazil.  The two quickly learned two global minds work better than one when it comes to planning.  Together they joined forces and years later moved to Morgan Stanley in 2010 with the addition of Fran D’Oliveira, Sergio’s son, and Leo Dutra.  The D’Oliveira-Frick-Dutra Group has been serving clients both nationally and internationally with their team ever since. 

    Planning is one of Tod’s main focuses for the team.  He currently holds the designations of Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA®) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®).  He also attended Columbia University in New York to receive the designation of Certified Portfolio Manager (CPM®).  In order to better serve his clients, Tod’s certifications allow him to stay at the leading edge of the financial industry.

    Tod and his team work closely with their clients to help define objectives, explore alternatives, and choose the financial and investment strategies most appropriate.  They service clients all over the world; an opportunity that not only broadens Tod’s perspective, but also gives him a more in-depth, global view of investing and financial planning – a unique opportunity and perspective advantage in the industry.

    Growing up in Baton Rouge, LA, Tod put himself through college and attended Louisiana State University, receiving his degree in finance.  He lived in Fairhope, AL for over 20 years, but currently resides in Orange Beach.  When out of the office, Tod enjoys spending time with his wife, Lisa, children, Mills and Emery, and their two dogs, Pearl and Porter.  Tod also enjoys hunting, fishing, boating, and camping.
