About me


Scott Tilley is a Financial Advisor and Senior Managing Director with Truist Investment Services, Inc. A 30-plus year veteran of the investment industry, Scott began his career with Scott and Stringfellow (now Truist) in 1988, spent 18 years at Merrill Lynch from 2000-2018 and returned to what is now Truist in 2018. He currently holds a Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) designation.

Scott was blessed to have his father, W. Allen Tilley, as his business partner and mentor for 21 years. Many of the investment disciplines employed for his clients today were taught and honed during their time together. Today, they seek to preserve and grow their client’s wealth by managing risk through prudent asset allocation and security selection decisions, maintaining timely and responsive communication and building client trust through transparency and integrity. At the Tilley Group of Truist Investment Services, Inc., they work to help their clients keep the promises they have made to themselves, their families and their communities.

Personal Interests

Another lesson Scott learned from his father was responsible citizenship, which he demonstrates in his continued support of the High Point community. He has served as chairman of the Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club, the Kiwanis Club of High Point, the Miracle Field, the Investment Committee of the High Point Community Foundation, the High Point University Board of Visitors, and High Point Partners. 

Most recently, Scott led the creation of Business High Point – Chamber of Commerce through the merger of High Point Partners and the Chamber of Commerce. This entity is now the unified voice of the High Point business community and has been a catalyst for many positive things in the community, such as the revitalization of the library and downtown, including the construction of the stadium, Truist Point. Scott enjoys spending time with his two children, Samantha and Scout. He also enjoys most outdoor activities (golf, hiking, fishing), reading, and his collection of classic automobiles. They live on their family farm in the Millis Downs area of High Point.

About Our Process

Hello. My name is Scott Tilley. I'm a senior managing director and financial advisor with Truist Wealth and a Forbes Best In-State Advisor Award recipient. My team and I come to work each day with a purpose to help our clients keep the promises they've made to themselves, their families, and their communities. My life has been greatly influenced and impacted by my father, Allen Tilley. As I was growing up, my father was a financial advisor and later the chairman and CEO of a brokerage firm. I started going to his office after school when I was only 12. He taught me the importance of knowing what you own, why you own it, and the price you paid for it. At the Tilley Group of Truist Investment Services, we build investment portfolios customized for each client utilizing individual securities. A custom plan and asset allocation policy and a disciplined investment process are some of the best tools for helping to navigate long term investment risk. We work closely with our partners within Truist and our clients, other advisors, tax and legal, effectively planning all aspects of their financial lives. Many of our clients are second and third generation family members. Having a sound estate plan is of the utmost importance and can help your wealth endure. If you're a current client, thank you so much for trusting in us. If you're considering our practice as your wealth advisor, we look forward to meeting you and learning about you and your purpose. I'm confident that you'll love our team just as much as I do.
