Erik Ringo, CFA, FRM, CAIA Portfolio Manager
Hi, I’m Erik! I grew up in South Lyon, Michigan. I graduated, magna cum laude, from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Chemical Engineering. After graduating from college, I joined T. Rowe Price through their Investment Fellowship Program in a rotational position through the firm’s quantitative investment teams. I worked at T. Rowe Price for over five years. Prior to leaving that firm, I was an Assistant Vice President and the leading Quantitative Analyst on a five-person investment team responsible for managing one of T. Rowe Price’s flagship multi-asset funds. In this role, I was responsible for building and automating algorithms that were used to help the portfolio managers identify attractive equity securities, simulate trading strategies, determine optimal allocation across asset classes, manage risk, and position the portfolio in a way that would benefit from recent events. I then briefly worked at a small financial advising firm in Baltimore as their Associate Portfolio Manager before moving to Michigan with my wife, Brittany, to start Autumn Financial Advisors, LLC. As the Portfolio Manager, I am responsible for investing assets managed by the firm. My investment experiences have led me to follow a multi-strategy approach to investing that eschews adherence to a rigid philosophy on how the markets work.
Brittany Goodwillie, CFP® Financial Advisor
Hello, I’m Brittany! Like Erik, I grew up in South Lyon, Michigan with my parents and two sisters. I began my studies at Northern Michigan University, before earning my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, magna cum laude, from Grove City College. I first worked in Human Resources before moving to Baltimore to be closer to Erik. I got a job at a firm specializing in advising physicians and soon realized my passion for financial planning. Before moving back to Michigan, I worked as a Financial Planner at a small firm where I worked directly with clients to formulate and implement advice based on their unique financial situations. I worked to find opportunities for clients to save money by making better use of their workplace benefit plans and reducing tax exposure. I ensured clients had appropriate risk management processes in place and helped them to understand how to meet their financial goals. I love helping individuals and families understand and implement their financial plans. I passed the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ exam in July 2017 and I now proudly use the CFP® mark. As the Financial Advisor at Autumn Financial Advisors, LLC, I enjoy using my knowledge to help enrich clients' lives!
We met at South Lyon High School and got married in Baltimore. After living in Baltimore for several years, we moved back home to be closer to our families and start Autumn Financial Advisors, LLC. In our free time, you can find us trail running or backpacking together. We love being outdoors and spending time with our families.
