20 years ago, Advisors Capital Management (ACM) set out to build a platform that would provide tax efficient investment management for clients seeking customized portfolios utilizing individual securities. Since its inception, ACM has enjoyed national recognition for its specialized investment solutions and has grown to over $2 billion in assets.
The year was 1998. Amazon was the selling only books and the Dow was hovering at 9,000. ACM’s now senior economic advisor, Dr. Alan Greenspan, had already uttered his famous warning, “Irrational Exuberance”. The equity markets were two years from the dot-com bust and the Russian financial crisis was creating a worldwide panic. It would take another ten years – after the 9/11 attacks, two wars and a housing bubble for the Dow to comfortably settle above 9,000 again. It seemed like a perfectly good time to start an investment management firm based on macroeconomic principals and a value discipline for security selection and portfolio design.
20 years later with the equity markets at new highs, ACM is thanking its advisors and clients for their continued confidence and commitment.
“We wish to express our deepest gratitude to our clients and advisors for entrusting their portfolios and financial well-being to our management team.” said Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer, Dr. Charles Lieberman. “I want to also recognize our team for the outstanding job servicing our clients all along the way.”
