Independent Financial Advisors
Independent Financial Advisor
Bill Abbott has been an independent financial advisor for over fifteen years and has been working in the Post Resch Tallon Group offices since December 2008.
Bill earned his insurance license and Series 6 mutual fund license while working at Rochester Community Savings Bank and M&T Bank from 1988 through 1999. Having worked almost every position in the banks, Bill ended his career as a Branch Manager at Charter One Bank. After that he took a position as an investment advisor with A. G. Edwards & Sons and built a strong client base during the difficult investment years of 2000-02. As the market settled Bill focused on helping clients understand the basic tenets of investing. By discussing clients desires and gaining trust Bill focuses on a plan that fits the individual whether they want capital growth, income or a mixture of both. The experience Bill has gained from his time as a financial advisor and his previous jobs allows him to communicate a bigger picture view of money management. This opens up the doors to discussing assets, liabilities, college and estate planning.
“The review process is an integral part of my business. There are over forty thousand investment options, as well as, insurance, long term care, taxes and legal issues. Post Resch Tallon Group employs an independent analyst that gives us various investment ideas throughout the course of the year. I also try to read as much as possible about every aspect of the market from gold to small capitalization stocks and U.S companies to emerging markets. During the year I also attend different seminars that increase my knowledge in regards to insurance and annuities. As for taxes and legal issues, while I have a general knowledge of both, I rely on personal accountants and attorneys. What this helps me do is maintain that ‘ten thousand’ foot view of my client’s financial picture and find solutions to achieving their goals.”
The Abbott family, including Bill, his wife, Laura, and their three children, are Fairport residents. Bill has coached soccer for the Perinton Recreation Center and baseball in the Fairport Little League; he has also served on the parish council for his church. Volunteering at area golf tournaments is one small contribution and extracurricular commitment Bill has made and counts helping at the Ryder Cup, the LPGA at Locust Hill and the Senior PGA as the highlights.

Independent Financial Advisor
Post Resch Tallon Group welcomed Robert Levine in May of 2009, the third independent advisor to join the firm since its founding in 2004.
Rob Levine has been helping clients achieve and maintain financial independence for over 25 years. He began his career in 1991 coordinating insurance, estate and wealth management with Centra Financial Group in Rochester. Five years later he joined Brighton Securities, the investment firm founded by his father Marshall Levine in 1969, and began to focus on wealth management as part of the Levine Group. There he was successful in building and protecting client’s assets through the Bull Market of the late 1990’s as well as the Market declines in 2003 and 2007-08. When the Markets began to recover, Rob followed his late father’s path and in May of 2009 became an independent advisor with Post Resch Tallon Group. Rob’s practice focuses on investment planning and wealth management as part of an overall financial plan that includes coordinated estate planning, insurance programs and tax management.
“My approach to comprehensive planning has evolved through two decades complete with raging Bull Markets and at least two serious Recessionary periods. This has all been filtered through my father’s successful and conservative approach to investment planning. That approach has helped many clients reach financial independence as planned for, as well as surviving through the Great Recession of 2007-08.”
Rob and his wife Amy, a Pre-K teacher for Rochester City Schools for 14 years, have been married for over 27 years and have raised 3 children: Maggie, Carolyn, and Michael.
Rob was also the founding Vice President for both the Great Lakes Girls Hockey League and Pittsford Youth Lacrosse, and has volunteered with the Perinton Girls Hockey Program, Pittsford Mustangs Soccer, and Pittsford Girls Lacrosse. Rob has also been a volunteer and Chair-person with the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and creator of the fund raising organization Skating for the Cure.
“I have been so fortunate to join Post Resch Tallon Group. With fantastic resources behind me I have all the tools necessary to assist my clients in wealth management with none of the interference that bigger investment firms impose. I can provide whatever resources are necessary for individual clients, and am able to provide individualized planning now that is better than ever.”
