Ryan is the founder and director of wealth management for The Hicks Team.
Ryan has a true passion for helping people. Ryan’s favorite saying is, “people have goals and dreams, I want to help them make these a reality.”
Ryan and his Team work tirelessly to help their clients reach their maximum financial potential. The Team approach promotes active and ongoing client service, quarterly client reviews, and “think tank” strategy building for client planning.
Ryan has specialized in working with business owners, pre-retirees/retirees and high-income earning entrepreneurs and professionals for over 15 years.
His work in the business owner community has proven his abilities to recognize business risks and understand where the business owner should be redeploying funds to build and grow their most precious asset - their ability to thrive in business.
Ryan’s retirement planning strategies have helped create a plan for his retirees where they are in a better position to maximize their retirement income and minimize taxation so they can enjoy their retirement lifestyle throughout their GO-GO years and beyond.
For his high-income earners and entrepreneurial clients, he helps them protect their ability to Earn Income - their most valuable asset! Through a cash flow analysis, he shares that every dollar earned, spent, saved, or invested becomes either efficient or inefficient. Taxes are one of the largest erosions to our capital and it must be addressed annually. His proprietary planning process allows for his clients to review the cause and effect of every dollar in their financial plan.
