After graduating from James Madison University with a B.A. in Finance in 1985, Robert J. Reby decided to pursue his passion for personal finance by founding Reby Advisors. After more than three decades in business, his vision and the firm’s mission remains the same: to inspire people to achieve financial peace of mind.
Under Bob’s leadership, the firm has grown from a local financial planning firm to a wealth management practice that has a national footprint with offices in Connecticut, New York, and Florida. He has been recognized by Barron’s one of America’s Top Financial Advisors and the top independent financial advisor in Western Connecticut.*
Bob has appeared on variety of media including CNN, CNBC, FOX-TV, Business Week, Fortune, Investor’s Business Daily, Forbes.com, and many others. He was also an on-air financial specialist for “Good Morning, Connecticut,” hosted “Money Sense,” a weekly radio show offering financial education, and penned a weekly newspaper column of the same name for the News Times.
Bob is active in numerous professional organizations including the Financial Planning Association (FPA) and The World Presidents’ Organization (YPO). He is also involved with numerous philanthropic organizations. Former Governor of the State of Connecticut M. Jodi Rell recognized Bob for his service and significant contributions to the Danbury area and the State of Connecticut when she proclaimed October 6th to be Robert J. Reby & Company Day.
Bob’s commitment to improving lives through financial education prompted him to author his first book Retire Without Worry. His firm has been a community leader on this issue as well, hosting numerous complimentary events including the annual economic symposium THE ECONOMY and YOU. Bob is currently working on his second book, titled Wealth Redefined: Charting the Way to Personal and Financial Freedom, expected to be released in Summer of 2017.
Outside the office and the world of personal finance, Bob lives in Ridgefield, Connecticut with his wife, Mary. Bob is also an avid golfer and tennis player. He has earned a national final ranking as high as 30th in the United States Tennis Association in the Senior Division.

*The formula Barron's uses to rank advisors is proprietary. It has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor's returns are dictated largely by the risk tolerance of clients. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor's regulatory record.
