Ryan W. Swayze
Ryan, a New Orleans native, loves everything New Orleans has to offer: the food, the sports, the potholes, and the nightlife. He attended Isidore Newman School prior to graduating from the University of New Orleans with honors. He grew up watching the Tigers every Saturday and the Saints every Sunday and that is still true to this day.
He and his fiancé Laurel, a local lawyer for a capital markets firm specializing in impact investing, can often be found walking Alice, their golden retriever, to Sal’s Sno-Ball Stand on Metairie Road. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, playing golf, relaxing at the beach, and attending outdoor music festivals (especially Wednesday at the Square which is put on by YLC with the help of his coworker Garlan.)
Professionally, Ryan is proud to return to what he considers his second home at Bellingrath, where he first began his finance career as an intern back in 2013 while obtaining his Finance Degree from the University of New Orleans. After earning his degree, he began his career at one of the largest firms in the country. However, he soon realized that his skills are best suited in a boutique setting like Bellingrath.
“Successful investing is about managing risk, not avoiding it.”
