Our Team

William G. Baynard, Jr.  and Don E. Olmstead founded Novare Capital Management in late 1999. They recognized a growing need within the market for an experienced team who could provide professional investment management expertise to individual investors. Their sound investment philosophy evolved from many years of business experience in the capital markets division of a large financial institution. The Novare Capital team is comprised of dedicated professionals with advanced designations such as CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM, Chartered Financial Analyst® and Chartered Financial Consultant®, and a support staff whose top priority is to provide an unparalleled level of customer service.
