Keith McKenzie

Founding Partner


With almost 25 years of professional experience, Keith’s entrepreneurial spirit drove him to found Delphi Private Advisors. Having worked for a large, New York-based money manager, Keith was able to see how large institutions and the wealthiest families in the country have their liquid assets managed. Keith knew that by starting a boutique-size firm with the right business model and investment philosophy, he could provide a high level of service and customized solutions for a select group of clients.

As a partner at Delphi, Keith sits on the firm’s investment committee as well as the investment team for approximately 40 families. He also leads engagements with a smaller number of families, in addition to providing a significant focus on addressing the unique wealth management needs of family business owners.

Keith lives in San Diego with his wife and two children, as well as their smart and “big-personality” Australian Kelpie. He enjoys family time and being “just dad” at home, in addition to sailing and ocean racing.
