Romane Orlando Robb was born on January 27, 1988 in St. Andrew, Jamaica. He founded his first company when he was sixteen (16) years old in high school (Newtown High School, Elmhurst, Queens, New York). It was a clothing company called “Hustling Magician” and Kreative Genius. It was around that time when he developed his fascination with the world of finance. He read “Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist” by Roger Lowenstein and was official hooked. He then read “The Intelligent Investor” by Benjamin Graham (Mr. Buffett’s mentor) before opening a brokerage account with five hundred dollars ($500.00), and through dividend reinvestments and increasing his capital he turned his initial investment into eight thousand five hundred dollars ($8,500.00) a relatively short time later. That’s a 1,600% ROI.
In 2010 he founded his holding company, Robb Corporation, to act as his version of Berkshire Hathaway with a little more hands-on approach. Through his holding company he has invested in many companies, in multiple industry sectors, both publicly traded and privately held.
He continued to grow and manage his holding company (now with assets under management – AUM well into the six figures) in college. First he went to the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) (Manhattan, New York), where he obtained is Associate in the Arts with a concentration on Business Administration and then completed his undergraduate degree with a double major in Finance and Business Communications and a minor in Film Studies at Baruch College (Manhattan, New York). He later attended the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of law where he concentrated on Corporate, Sports, and Real Estate law.
When he’s not busy managing Robb Corporation Mr. Robb likes photography, reading business books and hanging out with his close friends and family.
He currently resides in Queens, New York with his wife, Naliesha, a teacher who is now working on her Master’s in Education (MSEd).
