His hard work and determination to succeed helped him become one of the top financial advisors in the Las Vegas branch. Through his success he was able to build his own team, where he supervised four brokers at UBS.   

In December 2002, Ron left UBS and joined LPL Financial. This move allowed him to start his own independent Financial Services company, Ray Financial Services, Inc. Becoming independent allowed Ron to focus on his clients’ needs, and build a business culture that offers every client the support they need to help them succeed. His focus is on educating clients on their investment options, taking the time to understand their financial situations, and providing them with the highest quality information, services, and products.

As an independent, fee-only registered investment advisor who takes time to get to know each client, he does not sell generic cookie-cutter asset allocation models.

As an independent advisor, Ron is able to pick and choose investments for his allocation model from the strongest fund companies through his partnership with MDX Wealth Management, Scottrade Institutional, and TD Ameritrade. In addition, he has access to all listed equities, mutual funds, ETFs and bonds at a minimal trading cost for his clients. It is almost two decades of experience, and his focus on providing the right premier investment products at lower trading costs that allows Ron to provide world class service to all his clients.
