Smart. Focused. Steady. Calm.

Robert Graham, Founder, understands the importance of staying committed to your mission in life. He served his country as a United States Air Force fighter pilot during the Vietnam War, became a highly decorated pilot and was later assigned a variety of distinguished command and staff positions throughout the world, principally in Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

Today, he serves his clients with the same selfless attention to detail and concern.

You can sense this the minute you speak with him.

Bob founded Riggs Asset Management in 1990 after working for Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner and Smith, Prudential Bache Securities and Robert Thomas Securities. His goal was to build an investment firm that didn’t trade excellence for profit knowing when excellence is delivered, everyone profits. He knew the key to achieving this goal was to organize a team that was willing to place the clients’ interests and well-being ahead of their own. So he did just that.

He assembled a team that’s mature and knowledgeable. Every member brings a wide variety of specialized experience to the table, so they are able to help clients individually and collectively. They introduce new ideas and concepts, as well as fresh solutions and avenues to help clients embrace opportunity and reduce exposure to risk.

And it works.

Bob’s international work experience lends a unique perspective to the team’s international view of the world’s financial markets. His deep interest in studying and researching the globalization and integration of economics amplifies his founding mission for Riggs Asset Management: protect and grow every client’s significant financial assets even during the most challenging times.

Today, Riggs Asset Management, an SEC-registered Investment Advisory firm,  is one of the largest independent firm in Northeastern Pennsylvania, serving approximately approximately 180 families and institutions in 23 states and the District of Columbia. Approximately 25% of our family relationships serve two to four generations. A testament, no doubt, to the importance of Bob’s desire to deliver excellence.

Bob received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Nebraska and his Masters Degree in Business Administration from Auburn University. His professional designations include Registered Investment Advisor, General Securities Principal and Municipal Principal.
