Ken and Kim Jones are, above all, visionaries. Formally trained in engineering and law, their willingness to explore has led them into global telecommunications, shipping and timber among other ventures. Their properties, including a 10,000-acre ranch in Montana and an oceanfront ranch and home in California (shown here), reflect both their business sensibilities and their love of the outdoors. Managing all this takes a financial partner that can move quickly and with flexibility. That’s why their commitment to First Republic — and First Republic’s commitment to them — has remained steadfast through the years.
