Our History

“Excellence in financial stewardship is the firm’s focus and passion”

LCM Group was founded by D. Scott Luttrell in 1988 as a way to diversify his investment capital, and focus on emerging alternative asset opportunities.

Mr. Luttrell began his investment career as an independent trader and Member at the Chicago Board of Trade, trading financial market futures. In April 1988, after 10 years of trading, Mr. Luttrell launched his first hedge fund, the Everest Fund, a global macro absolute return investment fund focused on global interest rate and foreign exchange markets. LCM Group commenced operations as the General Partner for the Everest Fund LP. Concurrently, Mr. Luttrell and LCM Group served as consultants to Caxton Corporation, a New York-based diversified investment firm.

In 1991, after several years of very successful investment performance, Mr. Luttrell merged LCM’s hedge fund trading activities with Caxton Corporation. At Caxton, Mr. Luttrell served as Principal, Senior Trading Manager, and a senior member of the firm’s portfolio risk management group. During the period of time Mr. Luttrell served at Caxton, the firm grew to become one of the largest hedge fund management companies in the world.

In 2000, Mr. Luttrell retired from Caxton to turn his focus and energy towards establishing his family office, managing his own capital, and pursuing his family’s philanthropic interests. LCM Group’s family office investment activities included private equity, hedge fund, and real estate investing.

In 2004, Mr. Luttrell established LCM Global Partners LLC, offering investment consulting and alternative asset investment products to institutional and sophisticated high net worth investors.

In 2014, LCM expanded its operations, relocating its headquarters to Dallas, Texas while also maintaining its office in Tampa, Florida.

In late 2016, LCM decided to wind down its multi-manager fund and separately-managed account investment platforms which were being managed by its SEC register affiliate, LCM Global Partners LLC, and returned all investment capital to its external clients. LCM Group has since returned to its roots as a private alternative asset investor, and dedicates its investment focus to managing the assets of the family office.
