Successfully managing your financial life requires clarity, insight, well-reasoned thought, discipline, and good judgment. There is a lot for you to guard and think about, and there are multiple workflows that require your frequent attention and energy. We have the resources and professionals with the capacity and depth-of-field to help you succeed.

The bedrock of our investing approach is to help you meet your planned cash needs, achieve consistent asset growth, avoid unrewarded risks and control your tax and investing costs. Our goal is to help you build the long-term wealth that will help you meet your goals.

Planning for 30 or more years of life without an earned income will be a challenge for all of us. Planning for your financial future is a journey, but you don’t have to walk it alone. What we’ve learned about preparing for our own retirement may help you prepare for yours.

Intelligent Capitalworks is an independent, fee-only fiduciary investment management firm.  Managing investment portfolios for individuals and providing them with financial advice is our only business.  Our professional depth-of-field and firm resources support client engagements for individuals and families who are seeking investment management and wealth advisory services for assets starting at $1,000,000.

Our clients entrust us to manage their individual, retirement, family, trust, and charitable investment accounts on a discretionary basis.  All of our clients' accounts are held with unaffiliated independent custodians.

Our clients share similar investment objectives of seeking to earn a rising stream of income, capital appreciation and improved portfolio stability from their accounts.

We operate using a simple and effective business model.

ICW is a professional practice, not a company with shareholders.
We have no need or obligation to earn an investment return on shareholder capital.

We charge a professional fee for our intellectual capital and depth-of-field,
not sales commissions for selling you investment products.

We're approachable, not institutional.
You are not a business metric that drives the value of our firm.  It is a privilege to serve you.

We are not interested in making someone's Top 10 or Top 100 List.
Our only goal is to help you successfully manage your financial life.
