Ryan M Hungershafer, CFP®, ChFC®, CLU®, CLTC®
Wealth Management Advisor

Spring Street Financial



I began my career at Northwestern Mutual as part of our nationally ranked Top Ten Internship Program (Vault Magazine, 1997-2018) my senior year at Siena College. Following graduation, I started my own practice at the age of 22, becoming a financial representative with Northwestern Mutual in 2002. I am now in my 15th year as a Wealth Management Advisor and serve as Managing Director at our Albany District Office.

I chose this career based on my passion for enabling and encouraging others to achieve their goals and live their lives by design, not by default.


I hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Finance from Siena College. My dedication to my clients has motivated me to continue my education throughout my career. I have met rigorous professional standards and achieved some of the highest designations/certifications in our industry such as:

  • CLU® (Certified Life Underwriter)
  • ChFC® (Chartered Financial Consultant)

These designations/certifications stand as proof of my commitment to the principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism, and diligence.
