Listen to My Exclusive Interview with
Ryan Mack, Author of Living in the Village!

Ryan C. Mack

Author of Living in the Village, Ryan Mack graduated from the University of Michigan Business School (ranked number one in the country) with a concentration in Finance. His career in equity markets began in Detroit, Michigan as a stock trader and later as a trader for the largest NASDAQ trading firm in the nation, Knight Securities. Having a passion for teaching he established his own financial awareness group in 2003 where he began to publish regular newsletters about various financial related issues that were of interest to people from all income levels.

Having had the opportunity to continue his career with several of the nation’s largest and most prestigious financial planning firms, Mr. Mack believed there was an industry void relative to providing advice and services to a broader spectrum of individuals. He saw a need to provide personal attention and elevated client service to all individuals of all income levels and not solely the high net-worth clientele. This prompted him to establish his own financial planning firm, Optimum Capital Management, LLC. He has achieved two licenses of insurance, a certification that enables him to give investment advice (Series 66), and is registered in many states throughout the United States including New York, Michigan, Ohio and California to name a few. He is often invited to speak within the community where he emphasizes the importance of developing a responsible investment plan which leads to financial independence. With a clientele representative of all income levels, through Optimum Capital Management, Mr. Mack continues to teach the merits of sound budget management and smart investing for all people.

Ryan Mack, President of Optimum will continue to educate the public. As an advocate of philanthropy Ryan Mack has worked diligently within the community and beyond to increase financial awareness. Some of his efforts include:
