About Bernard Ringer

I am a California Native who grew up in Decatur, Illinois. I studied Finance at Butler University and then moved to Chicago where I spent four years at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. I then joined Merrill Lynch and was there for 20 years. I am a Certified Financial Planner ® Professional , Chartered Financial Consultant®, Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor® (conferred by the College for Financial Planning) and an Accredited Investment Fiduciary®.

My wife, Gail, and I reside in Oakland Hills, CA, along with our two Shih-Tzus, Bear and Jester, so you, as my clients, are an integral part of my life. I enjoy sailing, finding the perfect fly fishing spot, and always looking for that small unheard-of winery.

One of my “BIGG™est” joys is being part of my clients’ lives and helping them work toward a life of dignity and independence. I’ll continue to bring confidence to your life and be an emotional barrier between your short-term emotions and lifetime savings.

Here at BIGG™ Wealth Management, I work with individuals who want a customized investment portfolio, personal financial planning advice, and the benefit and perspective of working with a 24 + year investment veteran.
