DMKC Advisory Services is a fee-based SEC registered investment advisor providing investment and wealth services to a broad range of clients. DMKC Advisory Services is owned by its parent company D.M. Kelly & Company, an independent Des Moines, Iowa based brokerage firm.

DMKC Institutional Services was formed with the goal of providing institutions with the same exceptional services our retail customers experience. Having an in-house trading department allows us to obtain competitive bids for our clients and offer an accessible channel of dealer contacts.

Our Advantages



Our representatives average over 20 years of financial services industry experience. This translates into a knowledgeable investment professional who can offer his or her depth of experience about investments and the markets.


D.M. Kelly & Company is one of the few brokerage firms in Central Iowa that has its own full-time municipal bond trader. We carry our own inventory and have access to new issues. This often eliminates many of the markups that are commonly applied to bonds offered at other firms that do not specialize in fixed-income investments.


D.M. Kelly & Company is an independent, Iowa-based company. We are not an affiliate or subsidiary of any other firm. We are free to select and market the most attractive bonds, mutual funds and equities available, regardless of their source.


There are more than 3,000 clients who trust D.M. Kelly & Company to help them invest more than $1.9 billion* in assets. We are large enough to have the attention of organizations issuing bonds, yet small enough to provide individualized service to our clients. Many larger firms send their clients to impersonal websites and automated phone systems. D.M. Kelly & Company representatives sit down and talk with you about your goals in order to provide you with investment strategies that best match your needs.


D.M. Kelly & Company has a contractual Relationship with First Clearing, LLC for clearing services.
