Joe Wride is a Seattle, WA fee-only financial planner. Crafted Finance, LLC provides innovative financial planning, investment management, and insurance management to help individuals and business owners organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Jonathan Wride is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Most of us have to manage money, build retirement assets, insure our risks, and navigate the tax and legal system. Joe’s experience includes different stretches specializing in the pension and investment management industry, the insurance industry, and in financial planning. A desire to offer a worthy combination of services at great value led to the founding of Crafted Finance.
Background & Education
Joe Wride has been a financial consultant to individuals, families, and pension plans since 2009.

He serves on the board of the Financial Planning Association’s Puget Sound chapter.
Approach with Clients
We all have different attitudes, needs, goals, and knowledge about money. What we all share is a desire to move towards what we want and to make the most of what we have to work with. Joe has developed a process for managing our actions and approach to money. He applies it with individuals, families, and companies. He has (and will continue to build) the knowledge and experience needed to guide you in a way that fits you.
One of the benefits of living in Seattle, WA is there are no shortage of things to do. Joe takes advantage by skateboarding the boardwalks of Alki beach, riding his bike, playing golf, snowboarding, hiking, and camping in the mountains. He grew up loving to play football, baseball, and basketball and became a huge fan of the Cougars, Mariners, Seahawks, and Sonics (RIP... with hope for resurrection). But most of all, Joe enjoys spending time with his wife Jessica, daughter Ocean, dog Kanga, and they look forward to building a bigger family through foster care and adoption in the years ahead.
