CornerCap Investment Counsel History

The former President, and Chief Investment Officer of RJR Investment Management Co. founded CornerCap Investment Counsel in 1989 after the leverage buyout of RJR/Nabisco by Kravis, Kohlberg & Roberts. CornerCap's founders oversaw the $4 billion RJR Nabisco pension fund, and also served as the in-house advisers with day-to-day management responsibility for $600 million of the pension fund. While at RJR they developed a research system and investment approach rooted in an unemotional appraisal of company-specific growth forecasts relative to current valuation levels. Starting in 1989, they took their sophisticated institutional approach and applied it to their client portfolios, steadily growing the firm organically from an initial asset base of $5 million. Along the way, the firm developed its infrastructure, hiring additional investment professionals and support staff to build a platform that would be attractive to institutional investors looking for an independent, stable, competent investment management firm with a long track record.
