CornerCap builds a wealth management plan around your story. Through thoughtful discovery and independent discipline, we work to help your assets and life appreciate together.

Our Story


CornerCap Founded

Like the stories of many successful entrepreneurs, ours begins in a basement, where CornerCap was born in 1989 in Atlanta, GA.

After a decade of managing RJR Nabisco’s $4 billion retirement fund, Gene Hoots and Tom Quinn founded CornerCap to help individual investors grow and protect their wealth.

Using the proprietary Fundametrics® investment methodology they pioneered, Gene and Tom began managing the assets of friends and family who trusted them as stewards of their personal wealth.

Since day one, we’ve anchored to independent discipline and optimism. We act on measurable fundamentals to minimize bias, focus on facts, and maintain your investment strategy.
