Ryan Murray

Managing Director

Ryan has over 17 years advising and serving institutions, families, and individuals.

He began his career in 2007 with Goldman Sachs in New York, where he worked primarily with hedge funds in the firm’s prime brokerage division. He was then promoted to various positions across Chicago and San Francisco, where he advised some of the country’s largest institutions as a VP in the firm’s Fixed Income, Currencies, and Commodities Division.  After 12 years with Goldman, he decided to focus on advising individuals and families.  In 2019, Ryan joined Merrill Lynch in their Private Wealth Management division. After several years of helping clients within the construct of a bank, Ryan believed that to truly serve clients in an unbiased, fiduciary manner, he would need to operate within an independent firm.  Ryan left Merrill in 2022 to help start a new registered investment adviser (RIA) in San Francisco, where he served as the firm’s Chief Relationship Officer.  While he was resolved on the independent model, Ryan decided his clients would be best served within an established independent firm. Ryan aligned philosophically with Baker Street Advisors in its approach to investing, financial planning, and overall client service and joined the firm as a Managing Director and Financial Advisor in 2023.

Ryan graduated from the University of Richmond in 2007, earning a BS in Business Administration, with concentrations in Finance and Accounting.  He also holds the Certified Private Wealth Advisor (CPWA ®) designation, earned in 2022. He is an avid golfer and trail runner, and lives in Marin with his wife and three children.
