In 1988, Carl Marker turned his passion for investing and his dream of helping clients into a reality when he founded Investment Management Services (later changed to IMS Capital Management). IMS Capital Management built its name on value investing primarily in mid and large-cap stocks.
Over the past two decades, IMS Capital Management has expanded beyond that core strategy to provide a wide range of investment strategies and wealth management services. IMS Capital Management has locations in Portland, Oregon and Rathdrum, Idaho.
