Who Are we?

Founded in 1990 by Randall Shoker as Shoker Investment Counsel, Inc., Shoker Investments has been a fee-only money manager from its inception. After working as a stockbroker in the 1980’s, Randy sought out a better way to work with clients, one that didn’t create incentives to offer biased advice. By eliminating every form of compensation except for a fee paid directly by the client, Shoker Investments is free to provide objective counsel without deriving any benefit based on how your money is invested.
