Robert Farrington is on a mission to help millennials get out of student loan debt and start building wealth for their future. He also helps parents make smart choices about college financing options and navigating the complex world of paying for school.

Through his work at The College Investor, Robert Farrington has emerged as one of the nation’s leading student loan debt experts.​

Farrington launched The College Investor from his home in 2009​, while finishing his MBA at the UC San Diego Rady School of Management. Being passionate about investing and personal finance, he wanted to connect with others who shared his passion. Not finding what he was looking for on campus, he created The College Investor as a resource for young adults about money, covering topics from paying for college and escaping student loan debt, to investing their first dollars after graduation.

Since then, Robert Farrington has shared his successful student loan and wealth building expertise with thousands of ​young adults, both online, in person, and as a contributor to major publications such as Forbes and Huffington Post.

The San Diego native’s drive to help others and “geekiness” have fueled his work as a blogger, journalist, entrepreneur, and family man. Farrington earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from UC San Diego, and an MBA from the Rady School of Management at UC San Diego.

Passionate about his family, fintech, and watching the latest Marvel movie, Farrington resides in San Diego with his wife and son.
