A History of Wealth Stewardship

Since our founding in 1981, our mission—our very purpose for existing—has been the responsible stewardship of clients’ assets.

Stewardship may sound old-fashioned, but we believe that doing what’s right for our clients—particularly when it’s not the easy or a popular thing to do—never goes out of style.

"Investment management used to be a profession focused on stewardship. It has become a business focused on salesmanship."

- John Bogle

Seat at the Table and Skin in the Game…

When Capital’s investment team meets, clients always have a seat at the table, for we, too, are clients of our firm. Most of us have our investment wealth—and that of our families—invested in the same stocks and bonds as all our clients.

‘Eating our own investment cooking,’ or what’s commonly called ‘having significant skin in the game,’ aligns our interests with those of our clients.

Skin in the Game…and Soul in the Profession

Our commitment doesn’t end with ‘skin in the game.’ Each of us at our firm has ‘soul in the profession’ as well. Our purpose—our mission and meaning as a firm—is wrapped up in what we do.

On the website pages that follow, we provide some specifics that detail how we go about our mission.
