Securities Capital Corporation, a regional firm, is the oldest African- American owned investment banking firm headquartered in Alabama and the United States of America. There was a perceived need within the African-American community for investment knowledge and understanding. This need inspired Michael and Juanita Jones to found Securities Capital Corporation in 1988. This foundation has afforded many African-American communities access to pertinent information and financial markets that may have been more difficult to access before.
To address the community's desire to be informed in securities and investment matters, Securities Capital Corporation has conducted, sponsored or participated in seminars and workshops throughout the state. The company’s first seminars took place at Sixth Avenue Baptist Church, Sardis Baptist Church and Mary Magdalene Baptist Church. Seminars were later held at the Black Businessmen Club and other investment clubs and civic/professional organizations across the state.
When a National Month of African- American Investments was proclaimed in 1998, Securities Capital Corporation spearheaded efforts throughout Alabama hosting seminars in Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville, Mobile, Dothan, Abbeville and parts in between. The Alabama House of Representatives issued a resolution recognizing this month and Securities Capital Corporation’s efforts. Seminar subject matters included starting an investment club, securities law, the role mutual funds play, portfolio allocation, corporate bonds, municipal bonds, different company sponsored retirement plan types, retirement plans for the self-employed and rollovers.
In succeeding years, Securities Capital Corporation was able to continue statewide coverage via Alabama Public Television. With its investment fair entitled “Take Stock in Alabama”, numerous state-owned and operated, publicly traded corporations sponsored company information booths.
Securities Capital Corporation also understood children's roles in advancing investment knowledge and developing respect and a love for investing. To cultivate this respect and appreciation, SCC taught investment strategies and the stock market in Birmingham Public Schools. SCC also sponsored its first investment awards banquet, recognizing the students who participated in the program and its top investment return participants. Many investment clubs were also recognized. Securities Capital Corporation was instrumental in developing these clubs and SCC served as the clubs' financial advisor and/or broker of record. These activities birthed the firm’s Annual Stock Market Round Table.
Securities Capital Corporation’s commitment to the region remains as solid as ever with its retail and institutional brokerage services expansion, and its investment banking and public/municipal finance underwriting services. In this capacity, Securities Capital Corporation has participated as a financial advisor, co-financial advisor, co-senior manager, co-manager and selling group participant.
