The Investment Counsel Company Introduces New Website and Blog

December 11, 2019

The Investment Counsel Company, a Las Vegas-based independent financial advisory firm, is pleased to introduce our new corporate website.

Founded in 1987, The Investment Counsel Company (“ICC”) became the first firm in Nevada to act in a fiduciary capacity (meaning we put our clients’ interests first).  Over three decades later, we continue our leadership, and were voted the No. 1 independent advisor in Nevada (1) for five straight years by Barron’s.*

Our new website reflects ICC’s growth and provides valuable education and resources to help individuals and families achieve their financial goals.

The website includes ICC’s insightful blog, The Informed Investor.  According to Randy Garcia, ICC’s Founder and CEO, “The mission of this blog is to help level the playing field for individual investors and to help them get more out of the financial services industry.  I believe this is increasingly important during these complex financial and economic times.  Investors need to approach the financial industry with their eyes wide open.  We help them do that with commonsense advice and perspectives they may not get from other sources.”

There is no cost or fee to participate in this survey. The questionnaire is completed and submitted online.

The Barron’s Top 100 Independent Advisors ranking reflects the volume of assets overseen by the advisors and their teams, revenues generated for the firms, and the quality of the advisors’ practices. The scoring system assigns a top score of 100 and rates the rest by comparing them with the top-ranked advisor. There is no cost or fee involved to participate in this survey. The questionnaire is completed and submitted online.

ANY QUESTIONS: ICC’s Chief Compliance Officer remains available to address any questions regarding rankings and/or recognitions, including the criteria used for any reflected ranking. Please review Important Disclosure Information set forth in the last section of this website.
