Ryan C. Olds, CFP®

Wealth Advisor

Ryan is a wealth advisor at Davenport Wealth Management. In this role, Ryan provides independent advice through comprehensive financial planning to individuals and closely held business owners as well as retirement income planning for current retirees. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, Ryan focuses on identifying the specific needs unique to everyone and utilizing a customized approach to build a plan around those needs.

Ryan received his bachelor of business administration degree in finance from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, in 2003.

Designations and registrations:

  • FINRA Series 6, 7, and 66 securities registrations (held through Commonwealth Financial Network®)
  • Life and health insurance licenses

In 2002, Ryan was a finance major at Ohio University College of Business and attended an internship fair hoping to find his future career. It turns out…he did! That summer, Ryan completed an internship at Northwestern Mutual with Kevin as his mentor, and he fell in love with financial planning.

Since then, much has evolved in the financial planning industry and in Ryan’s life. Ryan first met his wife, Katy, in junior high and they attended Ohio University together. They have two boys, Rhys and Chase, and a girl…Daisy, their chocolate lab. One thing that hasn’t changed is that they live in Concord, where both Ryan and his wife grew up. Ryan currently serves as the Treasurer for the Concord Youth Baseball League.

Ryan discovered that financial planning was more than just numbers and spreadsheets; it was also about helping people: Helping people simplify the complexities of their financial lives. Helping people make better, more informed decisions. Helping people reduce stress, at least as it relates to their financial lives so that they can focus their time and energy on the things that matter most to them.

As life continues to become more complicated, it becomes more important to have a plan in place and to have someone who understands what matters to them most.
