Frederick Cassilly, CFP®

Principal Advisor

As a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), I built Cassilly Financial Group on the foundation of being a fiduciary for my clients. We’re an independent firm, which means my team and I work only in your best interest to produce sound solutions designed to meet your personal needs and future financial goals.

I previously spent 11 years working in Annapolis, MD for one of the largest broker-dealers in the industry. And as I gained more experience in the financial services field, I grew a passion for developing client-based solutions. It was then that I decided to become an independent RIA, so I could dedicate my time to helping clients achieve financial well-being through holistic and unbiased advice.

And as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, I am held to a rigorous code of ethics and standards. That’s why I approach every financial plan with integrity and professionalism.

While I’m a native to Maryland, I earned my bachelor’s degree in business finance from Lehigh University. 

I currently live in Maryland with my wife, Brittany, and our four children, Freddie Jr., Bruce, Stephen, and Don. Outside of the office, you’ll find me spending time with my family or rooting on the Orioles and Ravens.

David Bauer, CFP®



I began my career in personal finance as a financial representative for a large broker dealer in Baltimore, MD. During my time there, I gained experience in meeting with clients, coordinating schedules, and resolving clients’ questions and concerns. I also obtained several professional licenses, including the SIE, Series 7 and Series 63. 

In April of 2021, I decided to make the switch to Cassilly Financial because I was excited to contribute to a rapidly growing independent firm that puts clients at the center of a financial plan. 3 years later in April 2024, I obtained my CFP® certification. 

I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a Bachelor's Degree in Information Science (Data Science Specialization). I currently live in Federal Hill with my wife Nicole and our cat Jiji. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, competing in triathlons & endurance sports, and cheering on the Washington Capitals.

Controlling What We Can

Preparing For What We Can’t

When it comes to investment management, there is an art and science involved in determining which stocks, bonds and mutual funds make the most sense for you and your family. At Cassilly Financial Group, we utilize your investment personality characteristics to create a tailored strategy that aligns with your needs, goals and risk tolerance.

By focusing on the aspects we can control, we’re able to achieve returns faster than if we spent our time trying to outguess the market. The economy is constantly changing and shifting, which means safeguarding your assets while maximizing their potential is our top priority.

Our Investment Management Services Include:

Personalized Asset Allocation

The primary determinant of performance, your asset allocation strategy is specifically built according to your risk profile, objectives and liquidity needs.

Professional Research

By utilizing third-party research to monitor investment selections, we’re able to find investments that offer a proven track record and a reasonable cost.

Portfolio Rebalancing

Because investments grow at varying rates of return, we’ll monitor and rebalance as needed so they remain at the target asset allocation.

What You Can Expect From Our Investment Strategies

Behavior Coaching

Investing can be emotional. That’s why we help our clients manage their emotions throughout all cycles of the market. 

Flexible Options

As an independent and unbiased firm, your investments are selected with your best interests in mind and include both active and passive investments.

Ongoing Optimization

Even if we’re not scheduled to meet, we’ll continuously review your progress and identify new avenues for you to invest your money so you achieve value.
