Christian Stout

The roots of Stout Asset Management, LLC began in the summer of 2002 for Christian when he moved to Tucson, AZ.  That was when Christian joined Morgan Stanley as a Financial Advisor and successfully moved into the role of Vice President of Wealth Management, along with becoming the Complex Sales Manager. His roles were not only working with clients and companies; but to assist advisors in the complex, as well as to assist the local branches with operations. After 10 years, he left Morgan Stanley to join UBS in the role of Vice President of Wealth Management and as a Financial Planner. In 2015, he left UBS to join Commonwealth Financial Network in Austin, TX as a partner and Wealth Manager. The foundation of Stout Asset Management is built on three core beliefs; honesty, trust and confidence.

Christian was born in New South Wales, Australia, but his parents quickly moved back to the U.S. and he was raised in Oswego, NY with his two sisters. Upon graduating from Oswego High School he moved to Logan, Utah to attend Utah State University. He was enrolled in their Forestry program which was later changed to Accounting; he received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in 2000. He then was hired by Mutual of New York (MONY) as their Accounting Representative in Syracuse, NY. After a couple of years, he decided to move west and landed in Tucson, AZ where he met his wife Julie along with his two stepsons, Aaron and Ethan. 

Christian enjoys the outdoors, whether it be fly fishing, golf, camping, or paddle- boarding. Along with his wife, they both enjoy going to museums, exploring Texas towns, and going to local events as well as trying all the wonderful food Austin has to offer.

Trygve "Trig" Stout, CEO, MBA, LUTCF®

In Memoriam Of

Trygve was born in Berchtesgaden, Bavaria, Germany, shortly after World War Il. He spent his formative years in Newburgh, New York, and completed his BA degree at the State University of New York at Oswego. Additional graduate education followed before accepting a teaching position in New South Wales, Australia, for two years. Returning to the United States provided only substitute teaching opportunities, leading to a change of occupation into heavy industry as an apprentice mechanic. He transitioned once again to a position as an agent at Northwestern Mutual Life in Oswego, New York. During this time, he had begun to build his current brand, "Stout Financial Network, LLC", a multi-dimensional financial firm with business in more than 10 states. In 2001, he returned to the State University of New York at Oswego to complete his MBA with honors and served on the Investment Advisory Board at the State University of New York School of Business Oswego for many years.

After many years of office time spent in upstate New York, Trygve and his wife, Beatrice, added a second office in sunny and warm Palm City, Florida, where they split their time as he worked toward his retirement.
