Our Story

Ryan Gisclair and James Bayard co-founded Capital South Wealth Management, LLC in Baton Rouge, LA. While working in the life care planning industry, Ryan suffered a life changing financial setback at the hands of a negligent advisor. Similarly, a member of James’s family suffered from poor advice. These experiences played a significant role in leading the founders to choose financial planning as their vocation. The founders met in 2012 as they were entering the industry. While working together, it became apparent that comprehensive advice and transparency were missing from the profession. Vowing to be different, the founders started planning their own firm. Their vision was a client-first firm, built on guiding principles. After much planning, the founders launched Capital South Wealth Management, LLC. The financial professionals of Capital South Wealth Management, LLC. work to uphold the fiduciary standard and engage clients with respect, integrity, and transparency.
