Welcome to Intelligent Investment Management, LLP

What We Do

What We Do

We listen to clients as we formulate their portfolio so that it can be designed to meet each client’s unique long-term goals and objectives. We know how hard you have worked to accumulate the money that we are entrusted to manage. We also know that fees of all types (either seen on the surface or buried within the underlying investment) can have a negative effect on long-term results. Therefore, we clearly disclose our fees and we strive to make investments in funds that have the lowest fees in the industry. 

  • As independent, fee-only advisors we are objective in our advice and the management of clients' investments.
  • We are a family owned and operated, boutique firm specializing in closed-end mutual funds which provide regular cash flow and solid long-term total returns.
  • Team members are service minded; we spend a great deal of time giving back to the Durango community through various charitable and service organizations.

If you have any questions, would like to learn more about our Firm or to schedule an appointment to get a “second opinion” about your investment portfolio, please contact James at (970) 403-1234.

San Juan Basin Health Corona Virus Guidance

Words from Colorado's Governor: Jared Polis.

Colorado remains the only state in the Pacific or Mountain time zones -- the entire western half of the country -- that is seeing a steady decline in case counts. 

That is a testament to Coloradans continuing to take the pandemic seriously by taking the proper precautions: wearing masks, keeping our distance from others, practicing proper hygiene and protecting vulnerable populations like older Coloradans and those with underlying health conditions.

As the state continues to reopen, more of the burden is placed on individuals to do the right thing. We have to use common sense and consider the level of risk when participating in certain activities.

Before participating in an activity, Coloradans have an obligation to ask themselves:

  • How many other people will be participating in this activity?
  • Is the activity outside?
  • Can I put distance between myself and others?
  • How long will the activity take?
  • Do I feel 100% healthy?
  • How will I get there? Biking, walking, driving in a car are safer than public transportation.
  • Do I live with someone who is more vulnerable to COVID-19, and would be at high risk if I happened to bring the virus home?
  • And what is the value of this activity to me versus the risk I am taking?

Low Risk Activities: Camping, hiking, biking, outdoor exercise/activities or shopping outdoors at a farmer’s market.

Medium Risk Activities: Dining out, playing on the playground, shopping indoors or visiting a swimming pool.

Higher Risk Activities: Airline travel, concerts, attending worship services in-person, personal services, bars, gyms or large gatherings..

So please exercise personal responsibility, use common sense, and err on the side of caution.

Visit for more information about how we can continue to keep ourselves and each other safe and healthy.
