Company History

Hello. Thank You for Visiting Our History page.

I'm Debbie Higgins the President of Higgins Capital.

Ray and I began investing for California local governments in 1984 while we worked at Merrill Lynch.  These institutional clients included cities, counties, special districts, banks and corporations.  In 1989, we founded the Merrill Lynch San Diego Institutional Group.  The mission of the group was to provide investment and advice to institutional clients.  In 1992 we moved to Lehman Brothers in La Jolla where Ray and I established the La Jolla Lehman Brothers Regional Institutional Group. 

We founded Higgins Capital in 1996. We wanted to always be able to act in our clients' best interest.

Our company was created to work with both institutional and individual clients. Our experienced trading desk specializes in providing institutional fixed income investments and advice. The trading desk has combined experience of over 70 years.

As Registered Investment Advisors we provide our individual clients with investment management and financial planning services. 

We are committed to understanding your needs and challenges. We provide high quality innovative solutions to wealth management issues. We offer strategic consulting services to institutions, individuals and families.

Our company is unique because we are both Broker Dealer and a Registered Investment Advisor. This structure is the highest degree of independence possible and gives us the ability to focus exclusively on your needs as a client.
