The Synergy Between Opportunity and Reward
Capital Investment Companies’ story began with a chance encounter one evening at a downtown Raleigh restaurant.
Bobby Edgerton had a father who taught him how to win and the joys associated with being the best at something. He recalls a time when little league provided him with the most high-pressured experiences of his young life and often reflects on how that experience has served him well in his professional career. After graduating from Wake Forest with a BA in Business and Finance, Bobby spent two years in the Army before returning to Raleigh to stay. His passions turned from winning at tournament golf to creating innovative stock market strategies and at 42, the realist was an independent investment advisor managing over $5 million.
Richard Bryant graduated from NC State University with a BA in Business Management. After college, Richard returned home to become part of Bryant Supply, his family’s successful electrical supply business in Gastonia. But his passion of one day becoming the company’s president was not to be realized. Bored with working as a management trainee and anxious to experience his own success, Richard found himself moving from his hometown to start a new life in Raleigh. Over the next few years, he sought to achieve the right balance of professional success and personal fulfillment. At 24, the idealist realized his true passion and was ready to start his own brokerage company.
In 1983, the realist and the idealist met. Bobby Edgerton was mature and reserved while Richard Bryant was young and impetuous. Despite their differences, both men hit it off and formed what would be one of the largest and most successful independent investment firms in the Carolinas.
