BIO

Ross is the Co-Founder, President, and CEO of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management, where he leads the company's corporate and investment management operations while also providing personalized financial guidance to individual clients. Renowned as one of the most influential investors across social and traditional media platforms, Ross regularly shares his investment insights and advice, earning him a prominent presence on global business news networks and popular investment podcasts. With appearances on leading media outlets such as Bloomberg, Reuters, Fox Business, and CNBC, Ross has established himself as a trusted voice in the finance industry.

Under Ross's leadership, Gerber Kawasaki manages a substantial portfolio of $2.6 billion in investments as of 1/1/24, focusing on sectors like technology, clean energy and transportation, consumer discretionary, media, and entertainment. The firm stands out for its innovative approach to financial technology (Fintech), leveraging technology and social media to cater to a diverse clientele efficiently. Recognized for its rapid growth and commitment to diversity and inclusion, Gerber Kawasaki was listed as one of the fastest-growing companies in Los Angeles by the LABJ and received multiple awards within the financial industry for its dedication to serving the diverse community of Southern California.

Dedicated to empowering the younger generation with investment knowledge, Gerber Kawasaki pioneers the Get Invested program, aiming to provide accessible investment advice. As a testament to its commitment to innovation, Gerber Kawasaki became the first major Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) to partner with Gemini, offering Digital Assets to clients starting in April 2021. Ross's expertise extends beyond finance; he is also an adept online marketer and co-developer of the company's iOS app, my-moneypage.

Ross's journey in finance traces back to his upbringing in Los Angeles, where his passion for investing and music took root from an early age. Inspired by receiving Apple and Disney stock as a gift at 13 and witnessing the bull market of the '80s, Ross pursued his interests through college at the University of Pennsylvania, where he also nurtured his musical talents. Upon graduating, Ross embarked on a successful career in financial planning and investment management, earning accolades such as the Archon and Million Dollar Branch Award from SunAmerica Securities. However, it was during the financial crisis of 2008 that Ross recognized the need for a more client-centric approach to financial services, leading to the founding of Gerber Kawasaki in 2010 alongside his business partner, Danilo Kawasaki.

Outside of his professional endeavors, Ross remains deeply engaged in music and is contributing to the industry as a co-creator and managing member of Cocoon Music – Malibu. He also invests in and advises NoCap Shows/Cold Canyon Club, a video and live event music company, and serves on the executive board of the Guardians of the LA Jewish Heath Organization in Los Angeles. Additionally, Ross is actively involved in philanthropic initiatives, supporting various causes in the local community and beyond. With his multifaceted expertise and unwavering dedication to client success, Ross continues to make a significant impact in both the financial and music realms.
