A Fifty-Year Legacy of Stewardship

To truly understand Greenwood Capital is to go back more than half a century to a time when the textile industry was flourishing and Greenwood Mills was one of the leading manufacturers in the world. Our beginnings stem from the thousands of South Carolina – based employees that entrusted their pension to the Investment Division of Greenwood Mills. In 1983* this Investment Division would become the independent entity Greenwood Capital Associates. The experience of managing a multi-million dollar portfolio and the retirement incomes of so many hard-working families through turbulent times shaped the investment convictions of our Firm.

With lessons learned in the past and an ever watchful eye on the future, we were then and we are now decidedly disciplined in our approach. Today, Greenwood Capital is one of the largest independent investment firms in the Southeast, managing over $1 billion in assets nationwide through two distinct offerings, GCA Wealth and GCA Investments. GCA Wealth and its team of Private Client Advisors, provide investment advisory services for individuals, families, foundations, endowments and trusts. GCA Investments and its team of investment professionals develop and maintain investment strategies for both GCA Wealth and GCA Investments institutional clients.

This legacy has afforded our clients prudent growth with a watchful eye toward downside risks. It has brought together a remarkable team of distinguished professionals, rooted in the Upstate with South Carolina values.
