After nearly 2 years of construction, our new office for both Stack Financial Management and InvesTech Research is complete! We viewed this as more than a new building; to us it represents a new beginning. It is truly a state-of-the-art facility with many features that will help us better serve you, our clients, for many years to come.

Welcome to Stack Financial Management

The foundation of Stack Financial Management's investment philosophy is a belief that portfolio allocation must be based on a careful assessment of market risk. Through diversification and careful attention to the forces that move the market, Stack Financial Management utilizes a "safety-first" approach to money management that is designed to maximize both profits and safety.

One of the Top Investment Advisors in the United States

Nestled on the shores of Whitefish Lake in beautiful northwest Montana, Stack Financial Management (SFM) is far from Wall Street, but has earned a reputation as one of America's premier investment advisors.


In September 2018, Stack Financial Management was named to Barron's list of the "Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors" in the United States. This marks the 11th recognition for James Stack and his team by the financial publication, which began vetting the top firms in the country 12 years ago. James Stack, president and founder, was also one of five advisors profiled in the August 29, 2016 issue of Barron's (click here to read this article).

In addition, Financial Times named SFM among the "Top 300 Investment Advisers" in the United States in both 2014 and 2015 and Worth magazine has ranked SFM among the "Top 250 Wealth Advisors" in the U. S.
