Rayburn Brooks, CFP®
As a married father of three, family is very important to me. I understand the need for fiscal protection and the importance of your legacy. That’s why I am passionate about protecting the financial well-being of my clients and their families. I believe in building long-term relationships with ongoing input and guidance, helping each client stay on top of their portfolio through whatever changes the market may bring.
I am a Veteran who served proudly in the U.S. Army’s Special Operations until 1997, as well as the Oklahoma National Guard after active duty. I then transitioned into financial consulting after college with UBS, formerly Paine Webber. Then, in 2003, I accepted a position with a broker dealer managing the Investment and Financial Planning Department at the Bank of Nichols Hills. After a bank merger in 2006, I started Brooks Investment Professionals in order to offer my clients the independent, unbiased advice I felt was missing in the industry.
I earned my B.B.A. in Finance from the University of Central Oklahoma and later completed my Financial Planning education, which I studied at OCU Meinders School of Business. I hold a series 7 and 66 Securities Registrations along with Insurance Licenses in the areas of Life, Health, and Disability. I have earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification and am also a member of the Financial Services Institute. On my off time I enjoy spending time with family, motorcycling, hunting, and reading up on finance and economics.
