R. Raymond Rich

Founder

Rich Investments is a unique company founded by a unique individual. R. Raymond Rich. The success of our company is a direct result of his insight, work ethic, values, and leadership.

Born in Chester, Pennsylvania, Mr. Rich learned the value of a dollar at a very early age. As a small boy he sold tomatoes from his red wagon and delivered newspapers. He developed a work ethic and personal philosophy based upon hard work, determination, and family values. With every job he undertook, he gained new insight and understanding of business and finance.

After high school graduation, he enlisted in the US Navy and served aboard a destroyer, the USS RICH (DDE-820) out of Norfolk, Virginia. Returning to civilian life in 1962, he began work at Delaware County National Bank and attended night school at Widener University, graduating with a B.S. in Business Administration. Marriage and children served as additional motivation as he worked to create a future for himself and his family. It wasn’t long before he had built a sizeable family fortune in retail, real estate, and the stock market.

He resides in beautiful Naples, FL with his wife Mary Elizabeth.
