OUR TEAM
Donovan C. Fikes, CFS

By turning the tragedy of breaking his neck at age 17 into a story of success, Donovan has developed a unique skill set that helps his clients build retirement and estate plans through thick and thin. To live independently as a quadriplegic your whole day, week, month, and even year requires planning ahead, otherwise you could literally go without eating or getting out of bed in the morning. For Donovan, financial planning has become more than just a byproduct of his education and vocational experience—it’s evolved into a sixth sense. When building a solid financial plan there are many variables to consider and Donovan’s unrivaled ability to analyze complex systems helps him limit pitfalls and develop strategies to ensure his client’s success decades in advance.

After a diving accident at the beach left him paralyzed him from the shoulders down, Donovan came to San Antonio for rehab and fell in love with the city. He enrolled in the University of Texas at San Antonio, moving to campus directly from the hospital. While there, he studied history, psychology, education, and finance, as well as playing and coaching the nationally ranked San Antonio wheelchair rugby team. He retired from rugby after finding the love of his life, Kirsten. Outside of work they stay busy raising their beautiful twin daughters, participating in church activities at Summit Christian Center, and spending time with friends and family.

Less than a month after graduating he started Fikes Financial Services with the primary goal of educating his clients. With a proven track record of helping them achieve success, Donovan has garnered the 2015 Wealth Manager of the Year Award, multiple Leaders’ Club qualifications, a Blue Chip Circle qualification, a place in Fortune, Business Week, and Money magazines, as well as roles on development committees for future financial products and technologies. The most often heard response upon starting a relationship with new clients that he never gets tired of hearing is, “This makes so much sense! How come I’ve never heard this before?”

Matthew Deal

A National Merit Commended Scholar while at Ronald Reagan High School here in San Antonio, Matthew went on to follow in his parents’ footsteps, attending the University of Dallas where he graduated with a distinguished degree in economics. While seeking advice from Donovan on how best to leverage his financial acumen and quantitative abilities he realized the reward that comes from helping good, hard working Texans and their families achieve financial security and independence. He began working side-by-side with Donovan in 2015 and relishes the opportunity the industry provides to continually learn new ways to help clients save more of their hard-earned dollars, invest them wisely, and in doing so capture as much of their economic value as possible.

Outside the office Matthew spends his time pursuing an MBA at the University of Texas at San Antonio, as well as helping local Christians grow spiritually through his role as the New Member Coordinator in the San Antonio chapter of Young Catholic Professionals. When possible, he enjoys various forms of climbing up and falling down mountains.
