Jacobi’s founder, Michael Hirthler, was named a Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.*


Following the key teachings of Carl Gustav Jacobi, a well-known mathematician who exhorted his students: “Invert, Always Invert,” Michael Hirthler built his advisory practice on the concept of thinking things through backwards. This idea of turning problems around to consider them from different perspectives is an important component of Jacobi Capital’s multidisciplinary approach – so important that Michael named his firm after Carl Jacobi, providing a daily reminder to himself and his team of this key tenet. At Jacobi Capital Management, we seek to follow Jacobi’s teachings by analyzing our clients’ goals and potential risks and working diligently to consider “What if…then what?” before investing on their behalf.

Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors is based on assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. 2012 and prior the award is named Top 1,000 Financial Advisors. Hirthler was previously awarded this honor in 2011 and 2012.
