Rob Shears

Leo Ribeiro

Rob founded Valor Private Wealth in 2005 to help people invest in quality businesses and grow their wealth using Warren Buffett's strategies.


Rob saw family members work hard for their money and then not know how to make it work hard for them. He now works hard to make money work for clients. 

Rob runs the portfolios  by carefully selecting companies that have a very slim chance of permanent capital loss and very good prospects of growth. He doesn't go for the theory of averages by diversification but concentrates on those businesses that have what is needed to grow through good and bad times.

Rob is a Certfied Financial Planner and is a member of the SMSF association. He is guest on Ausbiz TV and writes for various publications. 

Outside of work, Rob has a family and loves the great outdoors with surfing, soccer and swimming.
