"Todd Gourno is the BEST! He has managed my retirement funds with absolute professionalism. I trust him so much I recommended him to my mother and a dear friend. He is trustworthy and cares about his clients financial success. In addition to his financial advice and management, he has taught me a great deal about the financial markets."

Ryan at Three Creeks Capital Management has been a huge asset t our financial planning.  Ryan took a holistic look at our lives, finances, short term goals and long term retirement goals to create a plan that works for us and will benefit us in the long term.  Great communication--after our first meeting. my to-do list was clear and concise. Ryan emailed or called often to let us know what he was doing on his end for us.  Ryan is also very knowledgeable at public employee pensions and how those fit into retirement. Highly recommend!

I have been working with Ryan Mink since before he joined Three Creeks Capital Management. Ryan has been nothing less than exceptional! Ryan has a background in law enforcement, so he understands my needs. Any police officer or firefighter needs to reach out to Ryan. Ryan understands the Ohio Police and Fire pension and Ohio Deferred Comp. He will take care of you like no other financial advisor.
