About Robbins Capital Management Inc.

Robbins Capital Management focuses on investment management of stocks and bonds to maximize wealth gains and minimize inherent risk. Very Highly-Ranked Returns -- 13.2% net average annually propelling $100,000 invested 29.4 years ago 20-fold to $2,050,000 2/24/21 -- single manager, S&P 500 oriented, long only, no margin, net of all costs, which averaged about 2.0% annually, so gross returns were about 15.0% average annually. Unheard-Of Cash Raising among long-only investment advisors and mutual funds -- RCM has raised >25% cash equivalents an average of twice annually -- aimed at preserving capital, comforting investors in bear markets, and attracting prospects eager to invest in equities but seeking lower than S&P 500 declines. Strict Sell Disciplines to reduce declines and reduce taxes -- Cut losses short; Let gains run. Minimizing Taxes -- over 5-year periods all gains are usually taxed as long-term capital gains. Productive Strategy -- Ride the coattails of the smartest investors who pay billions of dollars for the best information on stocks. They start powerful uptrends and downtrends, and RCM aims to detect those trends early enough -- especially via chart and strategic analysis. Broad, Soundly Based System -- stocks are selected based on fundamental, technical (chart), and quantitative analysis. While scanning the spectrum of information, RCM aims to identify and capitalize on the most critical factors. This very broad system should intuitively reduce downside risk and increase reward. Agility --- Because RCMs assets are small, it can buy and sell stocks without moving the price noticeably. No Biases, e.g., against foreign stocks -- RCM evenly considers hundreds of foreign stocks which are excluded from consideration by most money managers, as well as excluded from the S&P 500 and the broader Russell indices. Studies over many decades show that investing 25% of portfolios in large-cap foreign stocks increased reward while reducing risk. Varied Management -- RCM has two main services --1) Regular S&P 500 oriented, aimed at exceeding the S&P 500 Total Return, and 2) Conservative, characterized mainly by less stock market exposure, especially during market declines, and aimed at capturing at least the substantial majority of the S&P 500s Total Return. Both approaches attempt to minimize volatility. General: RCM has provided stock and bond portfolio management to individuals, limited partnerships, retirement plans, trusts, and a health charity with investment management of stocks, exchange traded funds (ETFs), closed and open end mutual funds, and bonds. RCM does not provide financial planning but does examine risk and suitability of each client. Existing accounts are managed at Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo, but others may be feasible.

Growing up in the Lone Star State, Travis learned the meaning of hard work at an early age. Patching fence and feeding cows, Travis spent his childhood as a ranch hand helping his dad maintain 800 acres beneath the sweltering Texas sun. Cowboy boots and blue jeans were not only functional--they were necessary protection from thorns, ticks, and every other "challenge of nature" that ranch work presented!

Travis began his financial planning career with Southwestern Investment Group. After marrying his college sweetheart, Travis saw an unfulfilled need in East Tennessee, so he started his own branch in Knoxville to serve the city and the surrounding communities.

Travis' true calling is working directly with clients, helping them plan their financial futures in a manner that aligns with their values and ensures their families will be confident in their finances. To help meet these goals, Travis leads Cullman Wealth Team and incorporates the expertise of attorneys, accountants, and other professionals to provide exceptional service and advice.

In order to meet the highest standards of professionalism and ethics in the industry, Travis is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner*. Travis enjoys working with fellow Dave Ramsey fans and supporting Financial Peace University coordinators.

Travis and his wife, Rebekah, live in Knoxville and are active members of their local church. They are enthusiastic fans of Dave Ramsey and the broader message of financial literacy and behavioral change pioneered by Ramsey Solutions. Travis' work and personal life are both guided by his faith and the Christian principles of honesty, generosity, compassion, and integrity. Outside of work, Travis enjoys music, football, fishing, woodworking, and spending time with his wife and three young children, Bryan, Brynleigh, and Tyler.
