A Legacy of Resilience

Robert’s path to financial planning was forged from his family’s own struggles and adversities. He recounts the time of his family’s retail business in Chicago collapsing due to arson, robbery. “My father and his father lost everything without any insurance,” Robert recalls. “I was a young child at the time, but the memory of my parents struggling to make ends meet stayed with me.”

Determined to break the cycle of financial hardship, Robert set out to build a better future for himself and his family. Armed with a newfound sense of purpose, he embarked on a career in financial planning, vowing to help others avoid the pitfalls that had befallen his own kin.

The Philosophy of Protection

For Robert, the key to financial success lies in prudent risk management and asset protection. Drawing from his family’s painful past, he emphasizes the importance of contingency planning and insurance coverage. “Losing principle can be devastating and impossible to make up,” he warns. “That’s why we advocate for a conservative approach to asset allocation and comprehensive risk mitigation strategies.”

Generational Wealth and Responsibility

Robert’s commitment to safeguarding his clients’ futures is deeply rooted in his own family history. Reflecting on his grandfather’s loss of wealth, he underscores the importance of generational planning and legacy preservation. “Every succeeding generation should not have to start with a zero net worth,” he asserts. “Our goal is to ensure that our clients’ wealth endures for generations to come.”

In the Year 2022

In 2019, Robert and his son, Ari, made the bold decision to relocate IBEX Capital from Highland Park, Illinois, to Boca Raton, Florida. The move brought with it a fresh set of challenges and opportunities, as they navigated the intricacies of a new market and clientele. “There’s an energy and excitement about building new relationships in South Florida,” Robert remarks. “We’re all on this journey together, helping our clients chart a course to financial success.”
