Ryan C. Stout, CFP®
CEO / CCO
Investment Advisor Representative
Theory’s founder, Ryan C. Stout, has spent his professional career working directly with clients in the financial industry. Ryan discovered a passion for finance at a young age and concentrated that excitement while studying at the University of Wyoming, double majoring in Finance and Economics. In February of 2010, he attained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. For nearly two decades, Ryan has supported a wide range of families and individuals across the nation as they prepare for, enjoy, and live in retirement.
Ryan’s motivation to serve clients became personal after seeing his family’s financial well-being negatively impacted in the way of oversized costs, commissions, lack of personalized attention, and unneeded risks in their portfolio. Shortly after Ryan’s parents retired, the global stock market crashed, and they were over-exposed to market risk. As a result, Ryan’s father needed to re-enter the workforce and, 15 years later, retired for a second time.
