Karl Eggerss, President & CEO of Eggerss Capital Management, first became aware of the stock market when his father purchased a few shares of Church’s Fried Chicken stock for him in the mid 1970′s. The stock was also purchased for his 2 siblings, who eventually sold their stock and took the cash. At the age of 14, Karl sold his stock as well, but decided to take his proceeds and reinvest. He had a passion for baseball cards at the time, and decided to purchase shares of Topps, a leading baseball card distributor. Over the next few years, Karl doubled his money and he was hooked.
Always fascinated with numbers, he earned his BBA in Finance from Southwest Texas State University in 1995, with a specialization in Financial Planning. Upon graduation in 1995, he immediately went to work for Fidelity Investments in Dallas, Texas as a mutual fund trader. In just a few months, Karl’s job expanded to cover all 50 states and he was awarded duties of helping out the sales team at Fidelity.
His opportunity to meet with clients on an individual basis came in 1996, when he became a financial advisor for a growing money management firm in San Antonio, Texas. During his 14 years of dedication to the firm, assets under management grew tenfold and Karl eventually served as the Chief Trader, in charge of trading millions every day.
This position landed him his own syndicated daily radio show airing in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Colorado Springs, & Denver. With the growing popularity of the program, Karl was invited by various financial news networks for his commentary on the markets as well. Some of the networks on which he has appeared include CNBC, CNBC Asia, Bloomberg, Fox Business, & Reuters. Karl enjoys offering public discourse on the state of the economy and the financial markets whenever possible.
In 2010, Karl established Eggerss Capital Management, his own registered investment advisory firm dedicated to providing clients with superior financial counsel in the changing economy. His market insight and cutting edge strategies help fulfill the mission of Eggerss Capital to help clients be protected and profitable in the face of a rapidly changing market.
Other major successes in Karl’s life include his family. He met his wife Amy in college and they were married in 1997. With their 2 children, Anson and Avery, Karl and Amy Eggerss currently reside in Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas.
