Author of 20 Retirement Decisions You Need to Make Right Now

Ray has gained a unique perspective of the financial industry during his 27 years of experience. Ray has worked as a representative for one of the nation’s largest mutual fund companies (Fidelity), as a bank investment representative at one of the nation’s largest banks (Citicorp) and as an insurance agent at a reputable life insurance company (Mutual of New York-MONY). Ray then worked as a stockbroker at the nation’s largest brokerage firm (Merrill Lynch) before starting Net Worth Advisory Group in 2003.

Given that Ray has seen the industry from many angles, he understands the types of products and services that commission-based companies offer. As an independent fee-only advisor, Ray is in a unique position to help people evaluate the products and services they have been sold by other advisors and help determine if they were given sound advice.

Financial Management Experience

I consider it a privilege to assist clients in making some of the most important decisions they will ever make. Chief among these are the many important financial decisions that will directly impact their ability to live the life they have imagined. As a fee-only advisor, I act in a fiduciary capacity and am uniquely positioned to provide truly objective advice. 

For the last 16 years I have worked intimately with my clients to help them achieve their life and financial goals. Nothing is more satisfying to me professionally than to see them accomplish this. The areas I have focused on the most with my clients include retirement planning, investment analysis, investment strategy, investment portfolio management, business planning, tax planning, life/health/disability/long-term care insurance, education and estate planning.  

Prior to working with Net Worth Advisory Group, I worked for Duke Energy, one of the nation’s largest utilities and energy merchants. As Vice President of Energy Marketing and Trading, I gained invaluable experience and expertise in managing market, commodity, credit, currency, and interest rate risk.   

Helping lead and manage Net Worth Advisory Group is a responsibility that I greatly enjoy. Because I care deeply for all of our clients and have a tremendous amount of respect for my work colleagues, I want Net Worth to be the very best it can be. I believe that as we effectively manage our business it greatly increases our ability to successfully serve our clients and better enables us to serve future clients.  

Throughout my life, I have strived to qualify myself to be someone that can create value in the lives of others. My educational background started with a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting from the University of Utah. I then earned a Masters of Business Administration from Brigham Young University. To better prepare myself as a financial planner, I completed the Financial Planning Certification Program from Boston University. I continue to complete extensive continuing education to stay current on my associations and designations and to better prepare myself to serve clients.

Personal

My wife Stacy and I live in Heber City with our youngest son. Together we enjoy the many amazing outdoor activities available in Utah. When I’m not watching my kids play sports, I especially love to golf, ski, mountain bike, and read.

Greg is passionate about helping his clients live the kind of retirement they’ve always dreamt of—and focus on what matters in their lives. Through the firm’s highly comprehensive approach, Greg has seen the peace of mind that clients experience with the knowledge that every piece of their finances is taken care of. 

For nearly a decade, Greg has worked closely with individuals and families to improve their finances. Along the way, he’s developed close relationships with his clients who he considers to be like friends and family. 

Greg believes the only way he can truly be accountable to his clients is through a fee-only platform, which Net Worth Advisor Group adheres to. This contrasts with a commission-based environment where conflicts of interest are inherent. In this way, Greg provides integrity-driven guidance that is tailored to his clients’ lives.

When he’s not in the office, Greg loves to travel with his wife—they especially love tropical vacations. He also loves spending time with his 3 daughters and playing golf.

Financial Advisor 

Email: kristy@networthadvice.com

Kristy is a financial advisor and partner with Ray LeVitre, CFP™. Together, Kristy and Ray bring a wealth of experience to serve clients who desire a financially secure retirement.

With Ray’s experience building one of the top fee-only financial advisory practices in the state of Utah and Kristy’s 20-plus years as a career woman building her own nest egg, they bring an unusual combination of expertise, compassion and capabilities to the table.

Much of Kristy’s career spanned over 20 years in executive management positions in Northern California/Silicon Valley with high-tech and early internet companies. When she relocated to Utah, she was personally recruited by Utah’s Governor Michael O. Leavitt to lead the state’s hosting and business development programs for the 2002 Olympics. She later went on to teach in a highly regarded private Utah school prior to becoming a licensed fee-only financial advisor.

Kristy believes that everyone should actively plan for retirement. It was while she was in preparation for her own retirement, sitting on the client’s side of the table that she discovered how different advisor agendas and motivations can be, which often leads to unnecessary complexity and confusion. It was this experience that inspired her to re-enter the workforce to become a fee-only (fiduciary) advisor herself. 

She is keenly aware of how daunting the financial planning choices can seem. Her personal journey through the school of hard knocks led her to discover that financial planning and investing can be an enjoyable, uncomplicated and stress-free experience. Together, Kristy and Ray strive to make that possible for all of the clients they serve.

Education & Designations

  • Investment Advisor Representative, Series 65 Licensed
  • Member, Financial Planners Association (FPA)
  • Bachelor of Science, Business Administration and Marketing, California State University
