Texas Capitol Group | Austin, TX | Our Philosophy

A More Deliberate Focus on Creating Investment Strategies

At the Texas Capitol Group of Raymond James, we seek to customize insightful investment strategies that not only focus on return, but also carefully address risk. We believe it is the most prudent course of action for pursuing the investment management needs of the individuals and institutions we serve.

In our view, these objectives can best be achieved by utilizing our in-house expertise, rather than outsourcing this critical responsibility to outside money managers. As a result, we serve as personal portfolio managers driven to always act in the best interests of our clients.

We believe in actively managing each client’s asset allocation through a consistent, disciplined, top-down approach. Our investment philosophy is built around the belief that market segment allocation drives portfolio performance. The personal attention and diligent approach to wealth management make us well-suited to serve the sophisticated needs of our clients.

Texas Capitol Group was one of the first retail money managers to offer customized buy-side management, rather than the traditional advisory outsourcing model.

We have developed seven tactical, objective-based strategies – which include core, fixed-income, and all cap-equity allocations. In our view, no other factor has a bigger impact on portfolio performance and risk management than market segment allocation. This is why we diligently built our investment and research process around the tactical management of market segments. The goal of tactical asset allocation is to move among different asset classes within a risk-managed framework. We strive to take advantage of market inefficiencies in the short and immediate term with the goal of pursuing additional return.

Every investor's situation is unique and you should consider your investment goals, risk tolerance and time horizon before making any investment. Investing involves risk and you may incur a profit or loss regardless of strategy selected. Diversification and strategic asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Investments are subject to market risk, including possible loss of principal. The process of rebalancing may carry tax consequences.

In a fee-based account clients pay a quarterly fee, based on the level of assets in the account, for the services of a financial advisor as part of an advisory relationship. In deciding to pay a fee rather than commissions, clients should understand that the fee may be higher than a commission alternative during periods of lower trading. Advisory fees are in addition to the internal expenses charged by mutual funds and other investment company securities. To the extent that clients intend to hold these securities, the internal expenses should be included when evaluating the costs of a fee-based account. Clients should periodically re-evaluate whether the use of an asset-based fee continues to be appropriate in servicing their needs. A list of additional considerations, as well as the fee schedule, is available in the firm's Form ADV Part 2A as well as the client agreement.
