Doug Twohill, Palm Beach Wealth Manager, Invests in El Salvador
...
Doug Twohill , a wealth manager in the Palm Beach Complex, has a unusual international investment strategy. Though he works in one of the most affluent communities in the world, his passion is for an orphanage he helped to found six years ago in El Salvador.
Mr. Twohill and his wife, Cindy, didn't stumble upon the orphanage idea purely by chance.

Mr. Twohill also made sure a psychologist was on call.
...
Mr. Twohill is quick to point out, though, that he has never had to solicit donations. He said colleagues and clients usually ask him how they can help, and it's hard not to get hooked once you've met the children.
"They don't have anyone that cares about them, they can't even relate to the concept of anybody caring about them," he said. "Then, all of a sudden, they have someone coming from a whole other country just to hang out with them. It's very moving. Going to a fast-food restaurant or to a water park is an otherworldly experience for children who've only known squalor, he said.
The change Mr. Twohill has brought to these children, obviously, is more substantial than giving them the opportunity to go down a waterslide. When he first met one girl, shoeless and dirty, she "literally looked like the commercials you saw on TV," Mr. Twohill recalled. Now, five years later, she is preparing to study child psychology at a university, in hopes of helping other abused children.

When colleagues and co-workers learn that he visits El Salvador three times a year, using some vacation days to do so, they are generally surprised. "People are challenged by it because it's very unconventional," Mr. Twohill said. "The response I get from most people is, 'Wow, that's a really cool idea,' as opposed to 'What did you do that for?' No one thinks about helping third world orphans in a bad light, they just don't know anybody who's necessarily doing it. I'm not saying that because I want people to tell me that it's a good thing to do. I like the idea that they realize people can make a difference."
Brad Smithy , director of the Palm Beach Complex, said Mr. Twohill is "one of those guys that both inspires people and makes them feel bad for not doing as much as they can.
...
(Mr. Twohill adopted a children from the orphanage, Maria, now age 7, so he now has three adopted children as well as three biological children.)
"He's one of our highest-producing financial advisors, and he's been that way for over 20 years at our firm," Mr. Smithy continued. "He's incredibly passionate about his business and about helping clients. A lot of times, people's community activities or charity activities impact their ability to do their job or vice versa. Doug does everything 100 percent."
What impact have Mr. Twohill's experiences in the orphanage had on his job? He said he has a new perspective on what he does for a living.
"We don't deal in life or death in our business, we deal in money, and that's a serious matter. But whether or not you're going to have enough food is not the same thing as trying to meet your objectives for the year," Mr. Twohill said.
