Why Norton Capital?

WE ARE DIFFERENT

You won’t find random pictures of happy, attractive strangers or landscapes on our website. We are here to grow your investments, not to give you the impression your life will be without challenges.

WE ARE EXPERIENCED

NCM was founded in 1993 – before many of today’s investment firms were in business and before some investment advisers were even born!

Ray has been in the investment business since 1976.
Jess has been in the investment business since 2004.
Jen has been in the investment business since 2018 and in the workforce since 1993 with an emphasis on
quality assurance.

Nothing takes the place of experience!

WE ARE FLEXIBLE

There are many different successful approaches to investment management. We have the flexibility to implement the approach we believe is most likely to achieve each client’s specific goals.

We are independent! Because we do not work for/report to a large bank or investment firm, our investment recommendations are not influenced, limited, or restricted by quotas or fees.

Plainly: we measure success by the growth of our clients’ accounts, and the value added by the service we provide.

WE INVEST IN INDIVIDUAL STOCKS AND BONDS

We believe this sets us apart from most investment advisers!

We view individual securities as often the best way to optimize performance (reward/risk trade-off). 

We believe it allows for the highest level of customization.

We have many years of experience doing this while many others in the industry only have experience buying mutual funds and ETFs for their clients. 

We understand some clients prefer mutual funds/ETFs and we are happy to provide, with our “value-add” focused on prudent and effective asset diversification.

OUR GOAL IS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR TRADE-OFF BETWEEN REWARD AND RISK

Many firms use either fundamental research or technical analysis to make investment decisions. We use both!

We feel this approach results in better asset allocation, security selection, and risk management decisions.

We aim to keep your costs as low as possible

Don’t hear that very often, do you?

Our goal is to be your most cost-effective option when selecting an investment manager.

Who Are We?

We will spare you our mugshots. After all, we are investment advisers, not fashion models!
