Douglas Robbins, CLU®, ChFC®

Doug joined the Franklin Capital Strategies Team in 2019 as our Director of Operations with an incredible track record of 33+ years of experience in the financial services industry. He specializes in utilizing insurance strategies as an estate planning tool for families and small business owners.

What does Doug mean to the Franklin Capital Strategies team? Well, Doug is our Yoda. He provides sound advice and truly is our mentor and we are his Jedi. Doug is loved by many of our clients and has an incredible rapport with everyone. What can we say, we love Doug!

Doug’s career began with the New England Life Insurance Company (now MetLife) at the young age of 23 years old. While at New England, he developed a niche within the small business community as well as advising high net worth individuals on how to plan for the next generation. Doug then went on to build and staff a successful financial services practice which included investment management, risk management and estate planning.

When Doug is not in the office—you can find him exercising, traveling, or hanging out at the local dog park playing ball with his black lab, Boomer. Doug has a passion for dogs (we love) and is an advocate for those dogs that are less fortunate without an owner or home. With a passion for the financial services industry, Doug spends time mentoring young agents (Yoda).

Throughout his career Doug pursued and obtained his CLU® (Chartered Life Underwriter) and ChFC® (Chartered Financial Consultant) which are both regarded as respected designations in the financial services industry. He is also a registered representative with NYLIFE Securities, LLC and holds a Series 6 and 63. Doug is a proud 1985 graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a BS in Accounting. He currently resides in Richmond, VA with his best companion Boomer.
