Goddard Financial Planning is not your average financial services company.
As fiduciaries, we put our clients’ interests first. Our model is different than most other financial services firms as we determine the cost based on the complexity of your individual situation. Using this approach we have helped thousands of clients plan their financial futures.
John Goddard, our founder, had the intention of becoming one of the preeminent financial planning firms in Seattle. Fast forward 14 years to find that John’s goal has been realized and has inspired an expanded team of dedicated financial planners. Based on the number of clients served, we are one of largest hourly fee-only financial planning firms in the United States!
We value the metaphor of canoeing as it applies to financial planning. Canoeing requires balance. Financial planning is about balancing the wants of today with the needs of tomorrow. While we savor the peace of calm water, storms and uncertain currents are all a part of the flow of life. Having a financial planner can provide peace of mind knowing that whatever comes, you’ll have the guidance needed to adjust course to achieve what matters most.
