JIM'S CAREER STORY
When the stock market crashed in 1987, Jim Gibbons recalls talking through it with his father, who was a financial advisor. When Jim expressed concern about the crash, he remembers his father replying, “Sometimes the best opportunities lie in uncertain markets.” Taking his father’s words to heart, Jim began his career as a financial advisor in 1998. He set out to help guide people through the maze of the markets and usher them along their path to retirement. In these early days of his practice, Jim set the foundation of his investment philosophy, which he calls “Invest in Strength”, through his discovery of technical analysis. As Jim continued to blaze his own path in the financial services industry, he co-founded what is now known as Alpha Pointe Capital in 2012. He began focusing on assisting other entrepreneurs, business owners, and corporate executives with 401(k) and wealth management services.
