Rob Edwards

Vice Chairperson

Rob Edwards is the founder of The Edwards Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, which provides wealth planning strategies, backed by process-driven investment portfolios, designed to help high net worth individuals and families simplify their financial lives and bring
meaning to their money.

While responsible for the overall management and direction of The Edwards Group team, Rob is equally passionate about helping clients get through challenging times. As a Senior Private Investment Management (PIM®) Portfolio Manager he guides the security analysis, portfolio construction, and risk management for The Edwards Group’s portfolio strategies.

Rob began his career in late 2008, during the depths of the Global Financial Crisis, which impressed upon him the most important skills a financial advisor can bring to client relationships, beyond investment expertise: the ability to listen, to empathize, and to make a lasting impact on the people and causes that clients care most about while being ever-mindful of risk. Rob has a particular interest in guiding investor behavior, and the paramount role that it plays in helping to manage the planning complexities of his clients’ financial lives.

Rob is a Naples native and resident, and he and his wife, Kate, are active in the community. They give generously of their time and resources to the David Lawrence Center, the leading mental health provider in Collier County, Naples Botanical Gardens, the Seminole Club of Naples, and the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens.

Rob earned an MBA, with a concentration in Investment Management, from the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza School of Business, and a BS in Finance from Florida State University. He holds FINRA Series 7, 63, and 66 registrations, and is a member of the Financial Planning Association®.

Rob and Kate also have their hands full raising their two young children, Elle and Graham, and the family’s golden retriever, Nolen.
