It is a special honor to receive the trust of others to advise them financially and manage their money.  It is a substantial responsibility that we approach with great care and respect. If you are looking to establish a long-term investment management and wealth advisory relationship, we welcome the opportunity to sit down with you to learn about you, your needs and how we might be able to help you.

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.

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 fiduciary 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.

Your bottom line is our bottom line.
Our only goal is to help you successfully manage your financial life.

Ideal Clients

Working Together

  • As a professional fiduciary, we will always work in your best interests. It is a privilege that very few people, if any, will get in their lives to be entrusted with your money and the responsibility to help you look after your financial well-being.
