Ryan Stibich, CIPM®
Chief Compliance Officer and Operations ManagerRyan Stibich joined Syntrinsic Investment Counsel in 2015 and quickly found the culture of the firm to echo his personal values. Aside from the surface level of supporting nonprofits, Ryan found the way Syntrinsic supports nonprofits to align with his beliefs. The emphasis on honesty and transparency, giving everyone a voice and always asking “what more can I do?” resonates with Ryan’s personal beliefs and strengths.
Ryan currently serves as Syntrinsic’s Chief Compliance Officer, Operations Manager and as the direct operational contact for some of the firm’s client relationships.
Prior to joining Syntrinsic, Ryan worked as a Portfolio Compliance Analyst for SEI Investments in Pennsylvania, completing post-trade compliance reviews, SEC and IRS regulatory review among other duties.
Ryan earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J., his Series 65 through FINRA and his Certified Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM®) designation through the CFA Institute.
Ryan recently began serving as a mentor with Minds Matter, an organization that focuses on college placement for high-achieving students from low-income neighborhoods. Ryan is energized by helping young high school students with less opportunity but an endless amount of potential to see what is possible for them.
In his free time, he enjoys spending time outdoors in Colorado. From finding a new mountain to climb in the summer, or slide down in the winter, being active is what refreshes Ryan.
“To me, community impact means a group of people coming together with the purpose of making everyone and everything in the particular community stronger. It should eliminate ego and selfish intent and focus on how those with more can help improve the lives of those with less. Too often you see something defined as ‘community impact’ only actually benefiting one particular segment of the community. I am a strong believer that ‘a rising tide lifts all boats,’ and those who have the ability to raise the metaphorical tide should do so in a way that benefits those who are stuck in the mud.”
