Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Robert (Bob) J. Davidson is CEO and founder of Canyon View Capital. Bob was introduced to real estate investing and limited partnerships in the 1970s when employed by what is now known as KPMG, auditing partnerships for medical doctor investors seeking tax shelters. During his years of auditing real estate partnerships, Bob became an expert in offering highly profitable, tax-advantaged real estate investments for his clients.
In the 1980s, Bob founded Davidson Fohs & Associates Accountancy Corporation (DF&A) and several other real estate partnerships. He then broadened his service to investors through the use of privately held tax-advantaged funds – thus the “birth” of Canyon View Capital (previously known as myRetirementASSETS). As CEO, Bob identifies properties that make good tax sense and increase investors’ purchasing power after taxes and inflation, producing an impressive track record of high annual rates of return over the firm’s history.
Canyon View Capital has successfully survived two recessions due to proper underwriting and steady investment growth strategy. Operating from a fiduciary mindset, a focus on value investing, and intricate knowledge of the IRS tax code, Bob has helped hundreds of small business owners, individuals and families retire comfortably through investment in Canyon View Capital funds.
A 45-year Santa Cruz resident, Bob is an active racquetball player, biker, avid traveler and pilot since age 16. While traveling, Bob assesses how real estate differs from place to place and what works best in different markets. As CEO, Bob primarily values the CVC Balanced Fund, is the chief strategic financial planner, meets with many of our investors to assist with legacy planning and is the key borrower for CVC. Bob is an active member of Santa Cruz Rotary and a Board Member of Dientes.
