HBKS Leadership
HBKS Advisors

Ryan Furtwangler is a Senior Financial Advisor in the Stuart, Florida office of HBKS® Wealth Advisors (HBKS®). Mr. Furtwangler began his career in 2002 with a regional brokerage firm in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He subsequently transferred to an advisor role at a large international brokerage firm and ultimately began managing his own office for the firm. During his tenure there, Mr. Furtwangler became keenly aware that while many in the industry talked about comprehensive financial planning and asset allocation, very few were implementing it well. This led to his search for a firm dedicated to comprehensive guidance. In 2005, Mr. Furtwangler transitioned his practice to HBKS®.

Shortly thereafter, he and his wife, Jennifer, moved to Stuart, where they now live with their daughter, Avery. Mr. Furtwangler and the Stuart team collaboratively service a variety of clientele ranging from working individuals to high net-worth families. His concentration, however, is on comprehensive wealth management. He also has significant experience working with life, disability and long-term care insurance.

Specifically, Mr. Furtwangler enjoys working with the complexities relating to multi-generational wealth and estate planning, as well as income replacement strategies for those transitioning into retirement. A core belief held by Mr. Furtwangler and the firm is that, in order to preserve and grow wealth, one must stay disciplined to the total picture and their interconnectivity. Most often, this isn’t the fastest or easiest way to work with clients. However, he believes that a successful client-advisor partnership is founded not in doing what is easy, but in overcoming that which is challenging.

Mr. Furtwangler earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance with a Concentration in Investment Analysis & Economics, graduating Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh. Additionally, he completed coursework in Aerospace Engineering at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Mr. Furtwangler is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER and is licensed with expertise in Life, Annuity and Health Insurance. Mr. Furtwangler is a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) and the Martin County Estate Planning Council.

He is a current Director and past President of Molly’s House, a Member of Amara Shriners YAMS, a past Board Member of the Treasure Coast Symphony, a Past President of the Martin’s Crossing HOA and is an alumnus of the Martin County Leadership program.
