Michael TryonMichael Tryon is the owner and founder of Tryon Investments, LLC, which is an independent Registered Investment Advisor, overseeing and coordinating finances in North Liberty, Iowa and surrounding communities. Our mission is to provide the families we serve with innovative financial strategies, solutions, and planning that result in financial clarity and security. In the financial services industry, there are generally two ways of obtaining financial advice: one is given by stockbrokers and the other is given by Investment Advisors. While many investors aren’t even aware differences exist, one of the main differences is that investment advisors have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of their clients at all times. Our motto remains, “Only What’s Best For Clients”.

Tryon Investments, LLC is a Registered Investment Advisory firm providing fee-based financial planning and investment advisory services. Our portfolio models consist of predominantly ETFs, complimented with stocks / bonds and Private Placements (e.g. Regulation A+, Regulation D 506(b) & 506(c). We also design client-specific strategies.

What We Do

Looking After Your Best Interest

We understand how important it is for you to be able to trust your financial professional – particularly in the wake of recent, highly publicized corporate failures and investment management. Regardless of the direction the stock market and interest rates take in the future, it’s important to have a trusted advisor you can count on to give you the news straight and always look after your best interests.

That trusted advisor is Tryon Investments. We are experienced, responsive and understand your need for integrity and transparency.
