Robert Enright, CFP®

Partner |

What do you love most about being part of Burton Enright Welch?

Over 25 years, a handshake partnership between Peter and me has grown into a prominent boutique firm. And we are poised to continue meeting our clients' financial needs for many years to come. We want to ensure that our clients and their families will never have to find another firm.

What quality of yours makes you best-Suited to what you do?

I combine 36 years of experience with strong communication skills to help clients identify important issues and suitable solutions. 

What's the biggest challenge?

Tax and estate planning laws, the economic winds, and people's lives are constantly changing. No two clients are the same and you need to understand each client and all the many pieces. Therein lies the challenge. But that also serves as a catalyst to make this business far from monotonous and very stimulating.

What do you love to do outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and friends. I attend a multitude of sporting events and have season tickets to USF Basketball. I live near and often hike Mt. Diablo. I'd love to say golf, but anyone who has seen me play would question how I enjoy that. 

What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

I'm proudest of my relationships with my family: the special relationship I have with my wife Erin, our two sons Robbie and John, and the wonderful relationships I have with my parents and four siblings.

I was raised in the Jesuit tradition to always be of service to others who may be less fortunate. So, I'm very proud of serving as a board member and eventual chairman of The Janet Pomeroy Center (now Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center) and as a regent and chair of the Investment Committee at St. Ignatius College Prep.
