Our Story

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. This same commitment to managing clients’ money with as much care as we would advise friends and family guides the way we do business every day.  

Three decades and $1.3 billion in assets under management later, our firm remains 100% employee owned.  Independent ownership preserves our ability to remain transparent and accountable to each and every client still today.  

Our Team Is Here For You
