Robert Smith

Robert entered Wall Street over 20 years ago with lessons passed down from four generations of family members who worked in the investment industry before him. Over the course of his career, Robert managed sales and trading teams at leading financial institutions, where he led in profitability at three firms: once while working in a trading capacity at the world’s largest market making firm and twice while working in an equity capital markets capacity at boutique investment banks.

In 2014, Robert founded ICV (Investment Community Visibility) to bring together his network of Family Offices and Fund Investors to evaluate opportunities that create a social impact beyond a financial return and allocate capital in a more conscious way. With more than 17,000 institutional investors and philanthropists, the largest network of its kind, ICV is mobilizing trillions of dollars to find solutions to the world's greatest challenges. Robert serves as Business Strategy Advisor to New Frontier Bio; a member of the President’s Advisory Board of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health; Senior Advisor for Fundraising and Partnerships to the Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates; a member of the Advisory Council of Represent.Us; and, a member of the Board of Directors of the Chaeli Foundation, Childhood Cancer Kids, The Children’s Village, The Harmon Foundation, and Tuesday’s Children. In January 2018, Robert was named one of the 100 Visionary Leaders by Real Leaders magazine.


We are awakening from the programming and conditioning that has contained us, namely through the process of belief. Everything we believe, we create the experience of in our lives. In order to have the kind of world we want, in order to have the kind of life we want, we don’t need to undo an old belief, we just need to introduce a new belief.
