Clarity Wealth Development – Who We Are
Clarity Wealth Development was founded because Kay Dee knew there had to be a better way to help people invest and come up with a financial plan based on client goals. Kay Dee had been working from the broker side of the business, where selling product was first and advising came second. She came across the fee-only model, removing commissions from advice. When she was finalizing a name for the company her father was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Kay Dee chose the name Clarity Wealth Development. Clarity because having clarity is the key to making sound decisions. The last part of the name, Wealth Development, is because she not only want to help people manage money but also build and develop wealth. We define wealth as having the style of living you want to have.
In January 2016 Todd Porterfield joined the firm. Todd also saw the value of holistic financial advice and is working in the Portland office. We felt we needed to expand our services, the demand is great for fee only advisors working under a fiduciary standard. Todd also helps clients in Bend, Southern Oregon and Corvallis as well.
