Gibson Smith, Founder/Smith Capital Investors
Gibson Smith is the 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 people and investing. He founded the firm on the belief that we are investors first and foremost and seek to be the best. Underlying the pursuit is hard work, dedication, and persistence. The firm centers around three key drivers – investing, people, and culture. Everything we do, say, and pursue will have to pass the test of these key drivers.
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 from January 2006 through March 2016. In that position, Gibson was also a member of the Janus Executive Committee and Portfolio Manager of Janus Fixed Income strategies. As Chief Investment Officer, Gibson was responsible for Janus’ investment process within the firm’s fixed-income division and served as Portfolio Manager on most of Janus’ 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 became two of the largest strategies at Janus prior to his departure – The Janus Balanced Fund and the Janus Flexible Bond Fund. 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 at Boulder (graduated in 1991 with a degree in Economics). He chairs the Burridge Center at the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado, Boulder, sits on the Leeds School of Business Alumni and Friends Board, the University of Colorado Foundation Trustee Board, and the Investment Advisory Committee for the University of Colorado Treasury. He serves as the President of the Board at Country Club of the Rockies and previously served on the Board of Colorado Golf Club.
