Professional Profile

Ryan M. McConnell is a Vice President and Wealth Strategies Advisor at Bank of America Private Bank in New York City. Ryan strives to identify tax, estate and financial issues that can have an impact on a client’s lifestyle, business interests, children and grandchildren and the legacy they wish to leave. Whether he is helping a family with the challenges of preserving multi-generational wealth or an entrepreneur with a company valuation, Ryan is dedicated to offering thoughtful guidance driven by his financial analyses and familiarity with legal issues.

Ryan is committed to building a personal relationship with his clients and strives to maintain a deep understanding of their family priorities, lifestyle expectations and estate plans. When a business or real estate opportunity arises, or a significant event occurs in their family, such as an illness, divorce or marriage, Ryan can step in quickly to offer a 360° assessment of the possible impact on their overall financial goals, tax liability, family trusts and estate. If there are questions clients should be asking, Ryan wants to be the first person they consult. He can examine an issue from various angles and conduct a more in-depth analysis before pointing clients to the proper outside professionals to seek the advice they may need. 

Ryan joined Bank of America Private Bank in 2019 from Wells Fargo Bank. Prior to that, he was in private practice with a boutique tax, trust and estate law firm in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
