The Malibu Wealth Planning Team

Ryan Morelli

Ryan’s passion for retirement income planning came from witnessing his grandparents get taken advantage of during retirement. After watching them, Ryan became determined to help prevent the same situation from happening to someone else’s grandparents. He opened his own financial firm in 2003 to help retirees “enjoy the ride.”

Ryan is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara and holds an insurance license in the state of California. You may have previously seen him on the “Coastal Business Report” on the ABC affiliate KEYT, where he discussed local financial issues. Ryan is also a best selling author. His book, “The Weight of Your World” focuses on many pertinent issues today’s retirees face.

A native Californian, Ryan enjoys life in Malibu with his wife, Tara, two children, Ronan and Quinn, and his father, who lives with the family. He also enjoys running, CrossFit, skiing, going to the beach and going out to dinner. An active dad, Ryan is on the Little League board and coaches his kids’ soccer, baseball and basketball teams.
