Personal Bio

Bull Oak is a Fiduciary Financial Advisor in San Diego that provides financial advice to executives, working professionals, and business owners.

Ryan Hughes’ Bio:

My grandparents adopted me as a child. Growing up in a household that experienced the Great Depression, worrying about money was the standard.

This upbringing provided valuable lessons and helped develop my philosophy on money management. There’s no substitute for level-headed, data-informed financial advice.

I’m deeply passionate about financial planning, and it pains me to see good-hearted people who have worked hard for their money not realize their full potential.

That’s why I started Bull Oak.

Since launching the firm, I’ve been honored to be listed in InvestmentNews 40Under40, and our firm has been named one of the fastest-growing by Wealth Management Magazine. But most importantly, our clients are raving fans.

Reach out today and learn why our clients love us. I’d love to meet you.

Here are a few more highlights:

  • MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management
  • BS from the University of Southern California
  • Finance experience at Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and Wedbush Securities
  • Proud U.S. Navy veteran as a Visit, Board, Search, and Seizure (VBSS) team member
  • Two amazing kids and a fantastic wife who has supported me through it all
