Investment company Reality Shares, Inc. has appointed Tyrone Ross to its Board of Directors. Mr. Ross will start in his new role immediately, helping the company to focus its innovation in traditional markets, as well as sharpen its approach to new areas of investment, such as digital and blockchain markets.
”The world is changing, and the financial services industry needs to wake up,” said Reality Shares CEO Eric Ervin. “Too many investment firms are stuck. Their business models can only serve the needs of those WITH wealth, rather than those looking to accumulate wealth. Tyrone’s revolutionary thoughts about the future of financial services mesh perfectly with our vision to build the on-ramps necessary for financial inclusion. We want to break down barriers for advisors so they can offer a wider array of solutions to a larger audience.”
Ross is a veteran financial advisor, the founder of storytelling consultancy 401stc, and the Director of Community at Altruist, where he hosts the Human Advisor podcast. A former Olympic trialist in the 400 meters, he was honored by Investment News 40 under 40 and WealthManagement.com as a top 10 advisor set to change the industry in 2019. FinancialPlanning.com also recognized him as one of 20 people in line to change wealth management in 2020.
“I’m honored to become a part of such an innovative and pioneering brand in the digital assets space,” said Ross. “I’m excited to offer a diverse perspective and my passion for the power of digital assets to change financial services for the benefit and greater good of society.”
