Following the firm’s success in AI’s Leading Adviser 2019, we caught up with Founder, Gerry Frigon who provided us with a detailed insight into the award-winning services the firm offers to clients. stablished in 2006, Taylor Frigon Capital Management was founded with a mission to deliver superior returns to investors by using a disciplined, time-tested approach that seeks exceptional companies in which to invest. Delivering a research-driven, disciplined process to institutions, RIAs and select individuals through two primary strategies, TFCM Core Growth Strategy and TFCM Income Strategy, the team at Taylor Frigon Capital Management also manages two highly concentrated strategies: the TFCM Aspire Strategy and the TFCM Israeli Innovation Strategy. Going into further detail, Gerry begins by informing us of the clients the firm serves, and the opportunities which are available to them. “Here at Taylor Frigon Capital Management, our clients have access to venture opportunities through Taylor Frigon Capital Partners, a private investment partnership that invests in emerging private and public companies. In 2016, Taylor Frigon Capital Management became an advisor to the TF Core Growth Fund (TFCGX), which seeks to invest in outstanding companies with excellent growth prospects and give smaller investors access to the TFCM Core Growth Strategy.” The Fund recently cracked Kiplinger's top 10 ranking for mutual funds. According to Bloomberg data, the fund has soared 22% and beaten 95% of its peers over the past year, nearly doubling the benchmark S&P 500 over that period. Enabling the firm to provide these award-winning services is the committed, experienced and hard-working team who all form the backbone of Taylor Frigon Capital Management. When discussing the internal culture, Gerry is keen to highlight the significant role the team plays in the overall success of the firm. “Each of our strategies have been managed by the same team since inception. Our in-house research team enables us to find innovative businesses and entrepreneurial activity that is changing the world we live in, before they’re visible to robo-advisors. Alongside this, our staff is instrumental in finding the seeds in ‘fertile fields’ that look the most promising and make informed judgement calls on companies that a robot can’t. This is one of the key benefits of active management.” Looking ahead to what the future holds, the team at Taylor Frigon Capital Management hope to continue delivering an exceptional service to their clients, one which has seen them achieve numerous accolades throughout the years with their most recent win being in Acquisition Intl.’s Leading Adviser 2019 where they were selected as the Leading Asset Management and Investment Advisory Firm of the Year, California.
