How Are We Different?

Wealth management in Portland, OR means different things to different people. For us, it means serving our unique niche of individuals and business owners in the high-tech world who are getting ready for retirement. Our clients have a unique set of problems: demanding careers, long work hours, high tax rates, and potential business sales. These problems require customized solutions and experiences of a professional fiduciary that your average financial advisor isn’t equipped to handle.

In addition to our niche, we have also developed a risk model that helps guide our investment management decisions. The average fee-only financial advisor in Portland, OR uses a static asset allocation model to make all their decisions. They talk a big game, but their portfolios are no better than an expensive target-date fund at the end of the day.

We take a deep-value approach to select individual stocks, ETFs, bonds, and no-load mutual funds inside our portfolios. But what really separates us is our risk model overlay. It allows us to determine if we should overweight or underweight the market. This strategy allows us to minimize significant portfolio drawdowns while participating in market increases.

Our Vision

We got fed up watching and working at firms that offered investors the same static, cookie-cutter investment strategies and high fee products. That’s why we started our firm in 2013 because we found a better way to plan for retirement.   

At Interactive, we focus on a planning-first approach to complement our pre and post retirement portfolios that adapt to market conditions to minimize losses. This two-pronged approach gives our clients confidence that they’ll have a worry-free retirement.  

Our Mission

Our mission is to prepare and guide individuals and business owners in the high-tech world on how to be successful retirees.  

Our Strategy

We follow a four-step process when developing, implementing, and tracking your plan. The first step is a detailed discovery meeting to understand your financial life. This involves an interactive mind-mapping session to ensure your goals align with your lifestyle. After our analysis, we’ll present our base-case scenario on how we think you’re doing and discuss your options. Next, we’ll run some different “what-if” scenarios to tweak your plan so it’s customized to your exact specifications and desired outcomes. Finally, we’ll implement and track your plan and investments using our PlanCycle90 process to ensure nothing falls through the cracks. Of course, life happens, so we’ll adjust your plan and investments to meet your changing needs.

Our Principles

Our principles of excellence, respect, service, and independence guide everything we do. We believe that personal wealth planning should be simple, intuitive, and collaborative – so our advisors always aim to create an individualized experience that meets or exceeds our core principles and values.
