Tyson Ray, a financial consultant and branch manager of the Elkhorn office of A.G. Edwards and Sons, Inc., has completed training for the title of professional money management consultant. Ray earned it by completing the investment planning curriculum of the certified financial planner certification program.

"Financial consultants who are awarded the professional money management consultant designation have in-depth knowledge of money managers' styles and disciplines and know how to help investors choose appropriate solutions," said Ray in a press release, upon receiving the designation.

To become a professional money management consultant, Tyson successfully completed approximately 100 hours of study, which addresses the investment planning process, the types and characteristics of various securities and the markets in which they trade, general securities laws, securities analysis and valuation, performance measurement, common investment strategies and client assessment. More than seven hours of supplementary courses on the latest managed money alternatives available through A.G. Edwards were also required.

Tyson Ray lives in Elkhorn with his wife, Jenny, and their two sons, Nelson and Austin. He has been with A.G. Edwards since 1998.

A.G. Edwards generally acts as a broker-dealer but may act as an investment advisor on designated accounts, and the firm's obligations will vary with the role it plays. When working with clients the firm generally acts as a broker-dealer unless specifically indicated in writing.
