Robert gained recognition in Ontario in 1987 when he correctly advised clients to move out of stocks and into bonds in his quarterly publication "The Investors Eye” just months before the famous October ’87 crash occurred. Many of his clients thankfully heeded this warning at the time and followed his recommendation to move their equity (stock related) investments to the security of safe and high yielding Government Bonds.
Robert became better known throughout Canada in the early 1990’s upon winning a nationwide company contest which encompassed more than 1000 Investment Advisors. The contest was based upon correctly predicting the final closing price of the New York Dow Jones Index and the Toronto Stock Exchange Index in the ensuing 6 months. His projections were almost dead on and he was the winner of both categories of this national contest.
More recently, Robert was named as top of his field in a contest run by a local community business magazine.
