President, Portfolio Manager, and Investment Analyst
Richard graduated with honors from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Finance and a minor in History. In 2011, he was awarded the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation, the definitive standard for measuring portfolio management and investment analysis competence and integrity. Mr. Keating has held an interest in investing since his childhood and had the pleasure of learning investment philosophies from his father, Jeff, throughout his life. Richard continues to learn investment techniques from his uncle, Phil, as this knowledge has now been passed down through three generations in the Keating family. Since joining Keating Investment Counselors, Inc. full time in 2007, Richard has continued to take on greater responsibilities in the day-to-day management of client portfolios and has risen to the title Portfolio Manager. Late in 2018, Richard took over ownership of Keating Investment Counselors, Inc. and assumed the title of President. As president, Richard hopes to carry on the standard established by Jeff which calls for putting client interests first while helping them build and preserve wealth over time.
