How We Help You
R|W is a fee-based financial planning and investment management firm headquartered in Boise, Idaho and serving families nationwide. Our advisors hold the Certified Financial Planner™ designation and the Chartered Financial Analyst® charter and serve as trusted stewards to help you preserve and grow your wealth.
You have significant responsibilities as a qualified retirement plan sponsor. Fulfilling them on your own can be difficult, time-consuming and can expose you to future liability. At the same time, you need to engage your employees and help them better prepare for the future.
R|W provides you with a full-service, proven process for managing your plan. We’re completely independent, so you’ll receive the high quality, unbiased advice you need to steer clear of conflicts of interest.
Our full-service approach saves you time and headaches. Since we share in your fiduciary responsibility, we help you monitor costs, select investments, and comply with best practices. For your employees, we provide effective education and guidance, and offer one-on-one planning and advice so they can best achieve their goals.

What We Offer
A Cup of Coffee and a Second Opinion
Volatile and confusing markets can cause even the most patient investors to question the wisdom of the investment plan that they’ve been following. At R|W Investment Management, we’ve seen a lot of difficult markets come and go. And we can empathize with people who find the current environment troublesome and disturbing. We’d like to help, if we can, and to that end, here’s what we offer:
A cup of coffee, and a second opinion.
By appointment, you’re welcome to come in and sit with us for a while. We’ll ask you to outline your financial goals—what your investment portfolio is intended to do for you. Then we’ll review the portfolio for and with you. If we think your investments continue to be well-suited to your long-term goals, we’ll gladly tell you so and send you on your way. If, on the other hand, we think some of your investments no longer fit with your goals, we’ll explain why, in plain English. And, if you like, we’ll recommend some alternatives.
Either way, the coffee is on us.
