Ascend Advisory Group was built upon the belief that planning should be about stewardship. 

As interim CEO, Tony Reilly played a pivotal role in restructuring Diamond Hill with $27B in assets, named after his favorite mountain in Connemara National Park in Ireland, a testament to his Irish heritage. 


In 2001, Reilly decided to pursue his desire to work closely with individuals, small business owners, and closely held businesses. He founded Ascend Advisory Group with $27M in assets under management.

Under Reilly's exceptional leadership, Ascend welcomed new partners who shared the vision for investing in the next generation. This strategic move, coupled with an influx of $500M in assets under management and the ongoing acquisition of talented investment professionals, marked a significant milestone in accelerated growth and innovation.

Though the company has grown, all remain steadfast and true to the mission of helping clients ask the right questions and understand the nuances of their options.


Ascend's goal is to ensure the mission for each client’s dollar is achieved.
