invest with conviction

With a population of more than 600,000 in its greater area, Boise has blossomed into the third largest city in the Pacific Northwest with a quality of life that’s the envy of most U.S. cities.

Homes are affordable. Crime is low. And the local schools are good. Average commute time is just 18 minutes (are you listening, Bay Area?).

Here you’ll enjoy some of the best outdoor recreation you’ll find anywhere, just minutes away. Like trout fishing and rafting?  Step into the crystal-clear Boise River at lunch—it runs right through downtown. Like to ski or snowboard? Bogus Basin ski area is just 16 miles from our office, perfect for after work powder. In the summer, ride from our office into the foothills and take your pick of more 130 miles of trails on the Ridge to Rivers Trail System. Hiking, hot springs, you name it.

But Boise is more than just an outdoor rec mecca. It’s home to a vibrant, safe downtown with thriving art and music scenes. The local food movement is big here, with two large, outdoor Saturday farmer’s markets, more than a dozen microbreweries and great restaurants. 

This unique combination hasn’t escaped the attention of the national media:
