About Doug Ray

Doug has been a financial advisor for 30 years and realized very early in his career the critical difference in the financial needs of those 5 to 10 years on either side of retirement as compared with those still building careers and retirement portfolios. Transitioning from asset building to asset protection and creating protected retirement income became the focus of his practice and professional education. Doug has guided hundreds of families to transition successfully into retirement, confident in knowing they’ve secured protected income that supports their lifestyle.

Born in Winston Salem, Doug graduated from East Carolina with a B.S. in Business Administration then served 8 years of active duty in the U.S. Navy as a combat aviator and instructor. During his instructor tour in Pensacola, he completed his MBA with a concentration in finance. He and his family returned to N.C. in 1988 where he worked for Merrill Lynch. In 1998 Doug opened his own practice as an independent financial advisor better able to offer his clients the best financial products for their goals without the captive product mentality of corporate financial firms. He has offices in south Charlotte and Clemmons with clients throughout North and South Carolina.

Doug has been a Top of the Table member for the last 9 years representing the top 1% of all insurance and financial advisors in the world.  He holds an MBA as well as designations as a Retirement Income Certified Planner (RICP®), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and is a licensed insurance professional for life and long-term care products in North and South Carolina. He hosts ‘The Wealth Guardians’ Radio show heard on WPTI 94.5FM, the Piedmont’s Talk Radio Saturday mornings and holds frequent public workshops on financial topics that can affect retirement income to include social security optimization, taxes in retirement, and long-term health care planning.

Doug and his wife Sherrie have been married 38 years and are blessed with two sons, a beautiful daughter in law and two cherished grandchildren.  Doug is a member of Harrison United Methodist Church and has completed the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Course. In the past, he’s served as a facilitator of Crown Financial Ministries, a faith based financial program. He’s raised funds for Make a Wish Foundation through his radio show and continues to give back to his community through church and community organizations including providing educational seminars. His hobbies include golf, collecting coins and cheering his beloved Green Bay Packers, East Carolina Pirates and of course, the Carolina Panthers.
