History of Success
KCM clients are served by seasoned professionals who have successfully managed client assets through numerous bull/bear markets, high and low interest rate environments, inflation, deflation, wars, and other challenging scenarios. This adversity has given us valuable insight and experience that we share with our clients.
Conservatism and common sense solutions have attracted corporate executives, business owners, doctors, dentists, and other successful professionals as KCM clients. They turn to us for investment strategies that are simple, fit their needs, and stand the test of time.
Since 1989, we have provided the same level of service and expertise to our clients, primarily growing through word-of-mouth referrals. We’d be happy to share with you some of the many stories of success we have been a part of over the past 25+ years!

Each quarter, we provide insights into trending financial topics and our outlook on the future growth of the economy.
While examining past market cycles is interesting, it does not provide a magic formula for investors trying to determine the market bottom. The old adage is still true that past performance is no guarantee of future results, but we can still learn lessons from past bull and bear markets and apply them to our current investment decision making.
A number of existing issues continue to weigh on markets, including the extraordinary monetary and fiscal stimulus measures taken to boost the economy amidst the COVID pandemic, as well as new issues such as the war in Ukraine. Disruption from the war and sanctions on Russia will exacerbate the supply-side inflationary problems worldwide in the near-term. However, the labor market remains strong, as are consumer balance sheets, and there is still a lot of pent up consumer demand for a range of products and services.
We believe the biggest risk to markets is the prospect of continued or worsening inflation, and understanding the causes and likely actions by the Fed to combat it is critical. However, we do believe the Federal Reserve will manage the interest rate situation prudently and that inflation will remain historically high but manageable.
