David Bobrowsky, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, CSRIC™

David specializes in helping successful professionals and business owners review their current tax and investment situations to plan for retirement and help efficiently transfer their assets to their children, grandchildren and charitable beneficiaries.

Helping others get the unbiased information they need to make sense of their options, designing a roadmap that reflects the specific concerns he hears from his clients, and supporting them to make tough but educated decisions to help gain control over their financial lives has been David's mission since he began his career in financial planning in 2000.

David Bobrowsky is a graduate of UCLA with a B.A. in Political Science. David also holds a Masters of Arts and Masters of Philosophy in Politics from NYU, where he pursued and published doctoral research on the causes and impact of the social investing movement.

David has been directly advising clients as a financial planner for over 20 years. David joined Gateway Financial Advisors, Inc. and became affiliated with Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. as a Registered Representative and Investment Advisor Representative in 2014 in order to be able to offer completely independent advice to his clients.

David has been a Certified Financial Planner™ practitioner since 2004. He earned the Chartered Life Underwriter® designation in 2005 and, most recently, in 2010 the Chartered Financial Consultant® designation, both through the American College of Bryn Mawr, PA. David is a member of the Financial Planning Association and the Northern California Planned Giving Council.

Recently, David completed additional training to become a Chartered Socially Responsible Investing Counselor (CSRIC™) to better serve the needs of his clients who wish to incorporate their values in their portfolios with sustainable, responsible, and impact investments.
