Think Independently, Invest Strategically

1919 Investment Counsel, LLC was founded a century ago upon a simple proposition: doing what is best for our clients. That innovation – to offer impartial advice, rather than just selling stocks and bonds – represented a new way of thinking about this work. It means that we are an investment profession first, an investment business second. That we can only prosper if we enrich our clients with wise counsel. »
