Our Investment Management Team
Ron Proctor, CEO
Ron founded Prudent Man Investment Management, Inc. in 1988 and serves as the firm’s Chief Investment Officer. He attended Brunswick College, University of Colorado at Denver and Metropolitan State College of Denver. Before founding the firm, Ron was an Associate Vice President of Prudential Bache Securities, Inc., specializing in Investment Management Consulting for pension and profit sharing plans. Prior to his affiliation with Prudential Bache Securities, Inc., he was a financial planner with another New York Stock Exchange member firm, having entered into the securities business as a stockbroker. He began his career in the financial community in 1975 as a mortgage banker.
Ron was a charter member of the Investment Management Consultants Association (“IMCA”) in 1985 and through the auspices of that organization, he completed a course of study in Pension Funds and Investment Management at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. That course of study, along with his experience at Wall Street firms, persuaded Ron that the emphasis by the members of IMCA on asset manager selection as an essential component of value added was invalid. He ultimately withdrew from his association with IMCA, and instead pursued investment consulting through the firm, premised on the concepts of the efficient market hypothesis.
Ron has been a speaker before numerous groups on topics concerning the economy, asset allocation, Modern Portfolio Theory, and establishing investment objectives and policy. Mr. Proctor has also been quoted in the Wall Street Journal.
