Our Business Philosophy

At IFC, we believe that we will achieve the maximum success in business and personal satisfaction by always putting our clients' best interests first. This sentiment is more than platitude, it is written into the governing regulations under which our firm abides. IFC is committed to upholding fiduciary standards of care mandated by U.S. law. As a Registered Investment Adviser, IFC fully discloses all fees and conflicts of interest, while discretely selecting investments solely with only our clients' best interests in mind.

Our firm is committed to the conviction that we are in business because of our clients who trust us to deal respectfully, ethically, honestly, fairly and lawfully. We know this is best accomplished by setting and adhering to standards of practice that are well-documented, openly shared, transparent, and beyond reproach.
