Robert "Bob" Veasey Jr. - Financial Advisor with multiple companies from 1987-2018 (Retired in March of 2018 - Passed away in August of 2018.) His wife, Margo lived in East Greenwich, RI and recently (9/2019) relocated to Chicago to be closer to her daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandchildren with trips planned to Washington, DC to see her son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren.
Bob provided guidance to clients based on more than 40 years of experience in financial services.
Bob got into financial services after serving in the Navy, starting with Mutual of New York Insurance. As he got to know his clients and their needs, he moved into providing financial planning. He earned his CFP certification in 1991 and completed the transition to independent advisor in 1995 joining Commonwealth Financial. He stayed with that firm for 12 years leaving in 2007 to join a smaller independent broker dealer, Sii Investments.
Bob partnered with Balance Wealth in 2017 to strengthen the business as he prepared for his retirement. He said he appreciated the firm’s approach in building relationships with clients and providing personalized advice to them. He also values Balance Wealth’s commitment to caring for existing clients while growing the Rhode Island client base.
Bob passed away in August of 2018. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Veasey Family.
