Financial Fortitude, with its hosts Dale Creed Francis & Ryan Litfin, is the fastest growing financial advocacy show in the country. And its slogan: “Not just exposing the PROBLEMS, but providing the SOLUTIONS” is exactly what it lives up to. They expose and attack the problems head-on in their weekly segment appropriately named the “Economic War Report”. Then, unlike many other financial shows which leave listeners frustrated, angry or confused, they inform and educate you on solutions you can quickly and easily implement to protect and grow your own personal wealth through TRUE & PROPER diversification among uncorrelated and non-dollar denominated asset classes!
Mr. Litfin knew what he wanted to achieve for himself and others very early on. While attending college he took a multitude of finance and economics courses, which gave him the opportunity to study finance across a variety of continents including Europe and Australia. Ryan also engaged in courses while studying in Chicago at places such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade before graduating with a degree in Finance & Economics from Gustavus Adolphus College.
Prior to co-founding Vincent Capital Group, Ryan was engaged in the financial services sector for the better part of a decade. He has also been actively involved in various community and investment groups. He furthered his investment knowledge and expertise while studying under Kevin Baldwin in Chicago and ultimately achieved the status of a Series 3 Licensed Managed Futures & Commodity Advisor.
Ryan systematically navigates a path to simplify your individual investment needs. He seeks to implement the appropriate strategies to your investment portfolio to help shorten the road to a secure financial future.
Outside of the office Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife Jenna and their two dogs, boating, riding his motorcycle, skiing, and spending time outdoors.
