Story First

At CornerCap, we get to know you before your numbers. We listen to your story before ever assessing your finances.  We find out where you come from to help you reach your goals.

While pioneers in the early application of emerging technology to investment management, our founders never talked about money when getting to know people. They put their expertise on the back burner to first connect with the person behind the portfolio. Only once they knew their story did they feel equipped to help them financially.

Following in their steps, we’ve worked with clients as they’ve built their wealth and solve financial problems for 30+ years. Always rooted in one core belief: Your story is more than your net worth.

To this day, our priority is learning that story, starting with the same three questions our founder asks everyone he meets:

  • Where are you from?
  • What do you do?
  • Why are you losing sleep at night? 

The result of starting with your story is a deeply personal financial plan that’s based on who you are, with the goal of helping your life and wealth appreciate together.

Each year, we will encourage you to meet with our team to catch up on your journey.

Every Story Has
A Beginning

That’s why Discovery is your first touchpoint with us. Our Discovery team guides you through a series of questions designed to uncover your story.

During this phase, we won’t ask you to talk numbers. In fact, our Discovery team can’t talk numbers to you.  Their specialty is uncovering your personal journey, not advising on your finances.

You have the chance to answer as many or as few questions as you’d like. You can do this online at your own pace or live during a one-on-one conversation.

The most important part of this process is that you feel the space and freedom to tell us what matters most to you. Our job is to support you along the Discovery journey and understand where you come from.

When you feel ready to initiate the numbers conversation with a Wealth Advisor, we’ll make that happen on your timetable.  Your Discovery guide stays in the loop, as you transition to build a life-changing financial plan with CornerCap’s individualized approach.

Once you become a client, we’ll custom-build your service team based on your unique needs.  But your story of financial growth doesn’t end there. Like a good sidekick, your Discovery guide remains part of your team to regularly ask “What’s Next?” in your journey.
