Our Story

Robert began his career as a growth investor at Elevation Partners, a media and technology private equity firm. He later joined Everlane to help lead an online direct-to-consumer brand. In 2019, he started Upholdings to make high quality growth investing available to more investors.

“I created something I couldn’t find for myself. The retail investor market is one of the biggest in the world, but innovation is way behind. Funds today are either too diversified, too trendy, or too expensive. With KNGS, we’re giving more investors the chance to earn long-term compounding investment performance."

Upholdings is based in Nashville, and operates a distributed team with an analyst in Philadelphia, designers in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and advisors in New York and San Francisco.
