My name is Arthur Robertson and you can call me the Investment Educator. I currently run an investment advisory firm, a food truck – Renegade Vegan, founded two non-profits – one focused on financial literacy for the youth and another on real estate while also being a Real Estate Investor.

Third Eye Advisors (TEA) is the boutique Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) providing customized financial planning and investment solutions to millennial business owners who run startup tech and cannabis companies. Our main focus is to assist clients with financial planning and investment management.
