Kelly C. Ruggles
President and Founder of American Reliance Group, Inc.
My Goal: To offer independent – non-product driven – advice to best meet my clients’ specific needs and goals as they prepare for or are in the retirement season of life.
What we do: We develop comprehensive financial plans to help our clients achieve peace of mind and provide strategies to assist them in reaching their personal financial goals.
My Background: I began my career in the financial services industry 25 years ago working for and representing institutional organizations. I focus on financial and estate planning and passionately adhere to a ‘client needs’ based planning philosophy. American Reliance Group, Inc. has continued to grow as we are privileged to serve over 300 clients in the greater Spokane area as well as across the country.
My firm is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) and I am a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU). As an Investment Advisor Representative, I engage in the business of advising others on investing in, purchasing or selling securities, money management, and financial planning advice on a fee basis. I earned my CLU accreditation by completing a series of graduate level college courses and passing rigorous exams based on financial, estate and tax planning curriculum.
I have published several articles on financial planning topics including many in our region’s Journal of Business. My book “Financial Concerns for Retirement” discusses the importance of financial planning for individuals who are nearing their retirement age.
I am currently advisory board chairman of the Spokane Corps of the Salvation Army. I previously served as a board member for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
I am a long time resident of Spokane, Washington although I was raised in a rural setting in the Redwood region of Northern California. I have been married to my wife, Kristine, for over three decades and we have been blessed with two wonderful daughters, Aaryn and Alyse.
