About Us

Our first investment?
Building the relationship.

The Kanawha Story

Kanawha Capital Management is proud to be located in historic Richmond, Virginia. In 1785, George Washington began construction of the Kanawha Canal in the city with the purpose of navigating and connecting. 

KCM was formed for similar reasons – to meet you where you are and take you where you want to go.  

Kanawha Capital is a fee-only financial advisory firm that puts our clients’ best interests before our own – no exceptions. Rather than focusing on selling products that generate commissions, our CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Chartered Financial Analyst® professionals provide personalized financial plans and expert investment advice. There aren’t any hidden fees or conflicts of interest.

For over 30 years, we’ve worked hard to build trusted client relationships through a high level of service and care. We do this through careful  attention to your individual values, goals, and concerns. We view challenging situations and service requests as opportunities.

Client-centered | Accessible | Responsive
Objective | Collaborative | Responsible
Trustworthy | Empathetic

Team

Kanawha Capital Management has over 100 years of combined financial planning, investment management, and client service experience. 

Our team holds prestigious degrees and professional designations that reflect our commitment to continuing education, high ethical standards, and accountability. 

We make time for our clients; listen to truly understand; and provide thoughtful, timely advice and solutions.

Our team believes so strongly in each other and our processes that we invest Kanawha Capital’s retirement account using the same research and recommendations that we provide our clients.
