Ying has been in the Financial Service industry since 2003 and quickly developed a passion for investments as he started trading stocks. After being in retail banking for 6 years, he decided to pursue an Advisor role in 2009 right in the middle of the recession. Now, with over 12 years of industry experience, Ying has gained quite a bit of knowledge with regards to planning, implementing, and insight on how to manage volatility within a client’s portfolio.
After joining Wells Fargo Advisors over 8 years ago, Ying has predominately covered the Brea, Fullerton, and Yorba Linda area. Currently, Ying lives in Yorba Linda with his wife and 2 young boys. In his spare time, he likes to BBQ, spend time with family, and whenever there is a free weekend, he enjoys participating in car racing events around Southern California.
