Financial Consultant

Robert Crowe graduated from Illinois State University with a major in history and a minor in political science.  His hard work earned him the History Department's highest award, the Lucy Lucile Tasher Scholarship.  He spent one semester at Salzburg College, Austria studying Politics and the Economics of European Integration, a subject of great importance right now.

Rob went on to study International Affairs at The Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University, where he received his Master of Arts degree. He was awarded a scholarship for language studies in Germany and took advantage of this opportunity to study at the Goethe-Institut in Prien and Dresden.

Upon graduation, Rob spent five years as a senior research analyst at Rapid Access International (RAI), a local Fairfax, Virginia firm that provides corporate and public policy consulting to clients in Japan.  His work involved studies that focused on deregulation, tax policy, energy policy, and government performance measurement efforts.  He regularly met with corporate executives and government officials in the US and in Japan.

Building on an interest in finance which began as a teenager (in high school he wrote and presented a book report on "The Wealthy Barber", impressing his classmates!) Rob decided to strike out on his own to build a financial services practice where he would emphasize strong interpersonal relationships with his clients. He began his work as a financial advisor at Smith Barney in 2006 and affiliated with LPL Financial in 2009.

Robert’s goal is to know his clients well, develop strong relationships with them, and provide financial planning and investment advice tailored to their very specific needs and objectives. Many of his clients are business owners and successful professionals.  He has also developed a specialty in the 401(k) area, servicing retirement plans and educating plan participants regarding asset allocations.

In addition to his educational and career achievements, Rob has excelled in both music and sports.  He  plays his trumpet in a local band, he's an avid fly fisherman, and he enjoys rock climbing, golf and biking with friends and family.
