Ryan Bell

Ryan started his career in the finance industry with Merrill Edge and Merrill Lynch. There, he quickly learned of his desire to serve clients with a more holistic approach, which led him to start his own practice as an independent advisor in 2017. When his former firm started restricting his clients access to investment managers and limiting the services he could offer, he knew it was time to start his own firm. This led him and George to found Shepherd in March of 2022. He loves building lasting relationships and helping his clients achieve their financial goals and dreams. Ryan lives in the Madison area with his wife, Liz, and their sons Nathan and Cameron. When he isn't serving clients, he can be found with friends and family, playing pickleball, or golfing.
