2019 Market Risks and Opportunities

What should investors be anticipating in 2019? During this session Gibson will review the risk and opportunities that the Smith Capital Investors team has identified for 2019 with a focus on fixed income markets. 

Gibson Smith

Founder of Smith Capital Investors.

Mr. Smith founded the firm in a desire to bring outstanding people together to build a business that focuses on relationships and investing. He built the firm on the belief that we are investors first and foremost and strive, always, to be the best. Underlying this pursuit is hard work, dedication, and persistence. 

Gibson has 27 years of investment experience.  He previously served as Chief Investment Officer, Fixed Income, of Janus Capital Management LLC, a position he had held since January 2006.  In that capacity, Gibson was also a member of the Janus Executive Committee and Portfolio Manager of Janus Fixed Income strategies. 

As Chief Investment Officer at Janus, Gibson was responsible for the investment process within the firm’s fixed-income division and served as Portfolio Manager on the majority of their fixed income strategies and funds. He has been credited with building the firm’s fundamental fixed income business.  

Under his leadership, the business received multiple awards for strong performance and exceptional risk-adjusted returns generated for clients. Two of the funds he managed—The Janus Balanced Fund and the Janus Flexible Bond Fund—became some of the largest strategies at Janus prior to his departure. Gibson joined Janus in 2001 after spending the first 10 years of his career at Morgan Stanley in Manhattan and San Francisco.  

He is actively engaged with the University of Colorado (’91 Economics).  He sits on the Leeds School of Business Alumni and Friends Board, chairs the Burridge Center at the Leeds Business School, sits on the University of Colorado Foundation Trustee Board, and the Investment Advisory Committee for the University of Colorado Treasury.  He sits on the Board of Country Club of the Rockies (President) and previously served on the Board of Colorado Golf Club.

Gibson has a passion for investment management, leadership, security analysis, economics, the financial markets, and golf.
