The firm delivers a research-driven, disciplined process to institutions, RIAs and select individuals through two primary strategies: TFCM Core Growth Strategy and TFCM Income Strategy. Additionally, Taylor Frigon manages two highly concentrated strategies: the TFCM Aspire Strategy and the TFCM Israeli Innovation Strategy. Clients also have access to venture opportunities through Taylor Frigon Capital Partners, a private investment partnership that invests in emerging private and public companies. In 2016 the firm became 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 “Taylor” in Taylor Frigon Capital Management honors Richard C. Taylor, the Fund Portfolio Manager Gerry Frigon’s father-in-law and mentor who passed away in 2004. Mr. Taylor managed portfolios alongside the renowned investor, Thomas Rowe Price Jr., in the 1960s and 1970s before founding his own investment management firm in 1988 in Santa Barbara, California. Mr. Taylor was a highly respected, client-focused asset manager who believed that investors could earn superior returns by investing in well-managed companies.
TFCM’s investment decisions are based on its own proprietary research. The investment management process relies upon staying fully invested in exceptional companies through multiple market and economic cycles. The firm’s strategy is not “buy and hold.” The team recognizes lifecycles of companies and paradigm shifts in the economy and make changes to the portfolio accordingly. TFCM invests its own capital using the same portfolio management process that it provides to clients.
