Russ Murfitt is a dedicated Wealth Advisor with a passion for helping his clients achieve their financial goals, especially retirement! After graduating from Montana State University with BA in Speech Communication, Russ began a 20-year career in the ski industry at Copper Mountain Resort in Colorado. He held a middle management position as Director of Special Events, which led to a position with French ski equipment supplier, Salomon North America, serving customers in Oregon, Washington and Alaska.
In 1998, Russ traded in his successful ski industry career to pursue his passion for retirement, joining Morgan Stanley as a financial advisor specializing in retirement planning. Working as an advisor at a major wire house was excellent training for becoming an independent financial advisor where Russ has served clients continuously since 2003. He was with Royal Alliance for 17 of those years and joined LPL Financial in 2020 in conjunction with joining the team here at US Investors International.
Russ maintains his LPL Securities License for series 7, 24, 31, 63 and 66 and he is licensed to serve clients in 14 states. His extensive experience coupled with his degree in communication has been a natural fit for helping his clients toward achieving their financial goals as they strive to build a secure future for themselves and their families.
Away from the office, Russ and his wife Lori are active! Lori breeds and shows Golden Retrievers and together they enjoy traveling by RV to participate in dog shows in the Northwest and beyond. Russ has since stepped away from extreme skiing and windsurfing to pursue the humbling challenge of golf. Additionally, Russ is an avid photographer- always striving to find the perfect shot.
