Bill Stordahl, CFP®, started Stordahl Capital Management because he was on a mission—and still is—to deliver value far beyond what clients expect and what they could ever receive from a bank or wirehouse. Bill knows what the culture is like at those national companies because he worked for one. His frustration with rampant conflicts of interest and the “revenue for revenue’s sake” environment propelled him into launching Stordahl Capital Management with the mission of pairing the smartest, most caring people with the greatest technology to create the best client experiences and outcomes possible. The mission remains the same today.

As Managing Director, Bill is responsible for the management and strategic direction of our firm. He oversees the wealth management experience that clients receive, directs the investment process and outlook, and works with the Chief Compliance Officer to ensure the firm is meeting its compliance obligations. As Senior Advisor, he meets with clients, works with the firm’s associate advisors, and establishes relationships with new clients. No matter what he is doing, his focus is the same: to make a difference in clients’ lives.

At Stordahl Capital Management, we focus on what we do best: helping people feel confident, self-assured, and empowered about their wealth and their retirement.

We provide financial planning and low-cost investment management strategies to help our clients meet their dreams today while creating their ideal vision for the future.

Our founder, Bill Stordahl, began his career with a Midwestern financial services firm where he was drawn to the firm's values of client first, shareholder second. That firm was later sold to a large national bank that did not seem to share those values. After the sale, Bill know it was time to make a change and launch his own business. In 2009, he took his firm independent. In 2017, he reorganized Stordahl Capital Management into a fiduciary, fee-only financial planning firm centered on life planning and committed to delivering exceptional experiences and great outcomes to the firm's clients by always putting their interests first.

Our goal is to manage the details of our clients' financial lives so that they leave our office feeling cared for, inspired, and confident, knowing the answers to the only two questions about money that really matter: Will I be OK, and can I live the life I want?
