In 1978, Robert founded Cowan Financial Group which is the grandfather company of Silver Penny so to speak. He received his Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation in 1984 and formed the very character of our culture, serving clients with objective advice, personable attention, and no-nonsense simplicity. As a licensed securities representative and a registered investment advisor (RIA), Bob created a reputation of providing sound retirement planning and implementation services. Many of Bob’s early clients are currently benefiting from the work done to prepare them for this important stage of their lives
Bob has been an active leader in a number of civic and charitable organizations over the past forty years. He and his wife, Valerie, have been married for over 40 years and enjoy spending time with their grandchildren, playing golf, and traveling. Bob enjoys his flexible work schedule and his continued involvement in the care of our clients.
