Founder & President


Robert is founder & president of the Antonio Financial Group. Prior to founding AFG, he worked in various capacities on both the institutional and retail side of the investment industry. His career began at Fidelity Investments in North Carolina along with stints at Edward Jones Investments, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and Wells Fargo Advisors.

Over time, he developed a great interest in advising clients without the pressures of the traditional broker relationship. It was very clear to him that the industry was neglecting their role in meeting the needs of their clients, which become the catalyst for AFG's inception.
