Ryan S. Broome, CFP®
Vice President
Senior Financial Advisor
Senior Portfolio Advisor

Over the years, I've had the privilege of guiding clients in all areas of wealth management, including, but not limited to: asset allocation, retirement, education planning, and liability management. Realizing one's ambitions and goals requires a detailed approach to financial and life preparations. I understand that one of the biggest challenges for an individual, family, or business is creating a financial strategy to reach their financial goals. I utilize Merrill's time-tested Wealth Management Process to accomplish this. I am committed to understanding the specific situations of the people and businesses I work with; thereby being able to establish objectives, develop an appropriate strategy, provide recommendations, and review the progress made toward reaching those goals and objectives. Once the goals and objectives have been established, I will then select from a broad range of capabilities from within the Total Merrill platform that are designed to help clients build their financial life.

I purposefully limit the number of clients I work with so that I can provide attentive and detailed service that wealth demands and truly deserves. I have earned the respect of active and retired executives, business owners, attorneys, physicians, and entire families in Georgia along with more than 12 other states since joining the financial services industry in 2005.

I work alongside Joshua Pham. We both hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER CFP® certification. Each strategy we formulate reflects a client's financial picture, risk tolerance, need for income and liquidity, and desires for retirement, and the people they love. We take strategic direction from our firm's Chief Investment Office and use managers we've known for years.

I rejoined Merrill in January of 2020 after working almost 10 years at Fidelity Investments, I wanted to bring my clients a more customized and comprehensive offering. Now, I offer a boutique wealth management experience with the resources of a large global bank.

Growing up in a small town in South Carolina, I watched my mother work hard to support us. We saved money but didn't understand what to do with it. I wanted to help others the way we needed help. That's a big reason why I pursued this career after graduating from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science in Economics.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife (Jenny) and 3 kids (Riley, Haley, and Cody). I love watching my kids play competitive soccer, swimming, and gymnastics. I'm an avid golfer and supporter of my alma mater.
