Under Brandon Comer’s direction, CCG has established a strong track record in a relatively short period of time. Much of its reputation can be attributed to the firm’s innovative solutions to complex problems, such as finding ways for small municipal governments to finance critical projects when coffers have run dry. Comer is also proficient at finding little-known tax options to help businesses, and especially startups, finance their projects.
The firm is also known for its straightforward approaches to difficult situations. When the City of St. Louis, Missouri, needed an investment advisor in 2013, its requests for proposals (RFPs) made it clear that the city actually wanted two firms: a large firm with more than $3 billion in assets under management (AUM) and an emerging firm with AUM of less than $3 billion. The city selected Comer Capital Group’s subsidiary CCG Asset Management, LLC, as its emerging advisor together with PFM Asset Management as its large advisor. One reason the city gave for its selection was that the two were the only companies to submit a joint proposal that outlined precisely how they would work together.
A committed professional, Brandon Comer belongs to several organizations that enhance his ability to keep abreast of new developments in the field and forge new relationships. In addition to the National Association of Securities Professionals, these include the National Association of Black County Officials’ Business Roundtable and the World Conference of Mayors’ Corporate Roundtable.
