I am a fee-only, fiduciary financial planner that works with young professionals to build a unique path toward their chosen future. - Tyler Elliott, JD, CFP®

(503) 862-9064

Fee-Only Financial Planner serving the Portland, OR area as well as clients nationwide via virtual planning services.

Tyler Elliott is a Portland, OR fee-only financial planner. Watershed Wealth Planning LLC provides true wealth planning to help Gen X and Gen Y clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Tyler Elliott is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Tyler Elliott is the founder and principal of Watershed Wealth Planning LLC. 

My practice is focused on households in their 30's and early 40's who have high income but may be struggling to build a positive net-worth, often due to the burden of student debt and rising housing costs. As a financial planner, I am able to pull on my prior experience as a bankruptcy attorney and as a financial advisor to help people avoid common pitfalls and cut out the noise that can complicate important financial decisions.

My clients have goals that are more unique than retirement or college planning such as, "How do we travel internationally every year without compromising our long-term plan?"  As someone who has traveled to 33 countries in my 41 years, I love helping clients answer these types of questions.

When meeting with people for the first time, the question I get more than any other is why did you give up a career as an attorney to become a financial planner? Practicing bankruptcy law exposed me to the countless stories of clients who had enjoyed success early in their career only to experience financial hardship as they neared retirement age. As I began to recognize the patterns of poor planning, I realized that I could have a more positive impact working with people as they make key decisions about how to save and invest. As a proactive planner, I now get to watch clients build their ideal life while helping to increase their probability of sustained success.
