An Authorized Infinite Banking Practitioner in Rockwall, texas
Ryan is the Founder of Griggs Capital Strategies, a non-traditional financial practice that specializes exclusively in the Infinite Banking Concept (IBC). Ryan’s background is primarily educational. Up until entering the financial business in October 2017, Ryan fully intended on becoming a Professor of Austrian Economics and continues his intellectual pursuits to the present day (including the private commission of an English language translation of Austrian School founder Carl Menger’s seminal 1888 work on capital theory). The goal is ultimately to articulate the economic law explaining Nelson Nash’s paradigm-shifting insight that capital attracts opportunity.
Ryan’s passion for education and his deep conviction to learn the truth about economics continues to manifest in his one-on-one service to clients and in his digital media production. Clients will notice a counter-intuitive, education-first approach that reflects Nelson’s admonition that “if you know what’s going on, you’ll know what to do.”
In 2018, Ryan and his business partner James Neathery co-produced the first-ever, full-length, five-part book review of the must-read Becoming Your Own Banker specifically for YouTube.
Ryan frequently updates his Medium blog with original material for both the beginner and the advanced IBC aficionado. Your questions and comments are always welcome! A selection of past essays include:
- Why Should I Build Capital with the Infinite Banking Concept?
- What is an Illustration?
- “The Problem is the Problem. The Solution is the Premium.”
- The Best Kept Financial Secret for Non-Profit Organizations (Advanced)
In February 2019, Ryan was selected by the Nelson Nash Institute to share his research on capital theory at the annual Think Tank Symposium for Authorized IBC Practitioners. The video of his presentation appears below. It will be of particular interest to individuals who want to see how the IBC integrates with Austrian Economics and financial strategy in general.
In March 2022, Ryan released the online lecture series Whole Life Insurance Mechanics from the Perspective of Nelson Nash’s Infinite Banking Concept for free on YouTube (Literally Free, that is, no email submission or implicit acceptance to be tracked with social media stalker ads required). This 7.75 hour lecture series may be the only online exposition of an advisor’s approach to IBC-style whole life policy design on the internet.
Ryan resides in Rockwall, TX. He was born and raised about an hour and a half from the beach in a town nestled up against the mountains of Southern California called Redlands. He enjoys long walks on the beach… primarily to think about the link between capital and entrepreneurship theory or his next IBC blog idea.
