John Krehbiel founded IMS in 1994 and serves as its President. Previously he was President of Krehbiel & Hubbard, Inc. (now Washington Capital Management), a firm he co-founded in 1980 to advise institutional accounts. After retiring in 1990, John obtained an exception to his non-compete agreement to create IMS to serve smaller non-institutional accounts.
My career emphasis has been to reduce investor risk through tactical asset allocation programs applied to portfolios of mutual funds. I developed the basis of the current algorithms in 1977 as the wholly owned company Equity Timing Consultants (ETC). ETC became Krehbiel & Hubbard in 1980 and grew to $400 million under management by 1990. Following retirement from Krehbiel & Hubbard in 1990 I experienced a three-year misstep financing a property development business. After obtaining an exception to my non-compete with Washington Capital Management (the successor company to Krehbiel & Hubbard), I formed Interfund Management Services. The performance success of the tactical asset allocation programs has been consistent throughout. The past 23 years of performance as Interfund Management Services can be viewed at imsadvisor.com. Recent marketing and management initiatives will insure the continuance of the IMS program algorithms to benefit investors for decades to come.
