David Selden


David Selden graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2007 with a degree in finance.  He immediately began working at a small fixed income investment shop in North Jersey.  Within 2 months of graduation, he was Series 7 and 63 registered and on the phones trading municipal and corporate debt.  After 4 years of being a bond broker, a tough decision loomed.    The bond business was rewarding financially but there was little personal connection.  Something was missing…

In September of 2011, David opened an independent branch office of a full service investment firm.  He grew his business to include a wide array of asset management and insurance services.  He added a Series 66 and started shifting more to fee based business over commission.  This allowed him to become more involved in people’s financial lives and not just their financial accounts.  

In February 2015, David joined Raymond James Financial Services.  He continued his quest of becoming more of a financial advisor and not just an investment advisor.  He realized returns on investment and returns in life aren’t one in the same. 

That brings us to the summer of 2019 and the grand opening of Barnegat Bay Financial Group (BBFG).  The timing was perfect as Lacey Township is growing faster than ever.  As long as he has lived here, David could see that southern Ocean County was in need of more financial service providers with its robust retiree growth and growing business community.

On a personal note, David Selden and his wife Caitlin live in Lanoka Harbor with their son Lucas.  They enjoy every minute of the New Jersey shore life.  When not talking money, David enjoys boating, fishing, the beach, volunteering through the Forked River Rotary Club, The New York Yankees and Giants, his labradoodle Maci, and of course taking instruction from Caitlin!
