As a fee-only financial planning firm, Laird Norton Wealth Management puts your interests first. Our advisors are paid a salary, not a percentage of every transaction they make on your behalf. This ensures that your investment strategy is based on your goals, not on generating commissions.

A Laird Norton investment plan is tax-aware and tailored to your needs. Asset allocation is optimized for after-tax return, given your risk and income preferences. Asset managers within each of your investment categories are thoroughly researched by us and closely monitored. Our tax-aware investing strategies include both tax-exempt and taxable options.

The bottom line: At Laird Norton Wealth Management, you get much more than investment advice. You get an advocate for your life, your wealth and your legacy.
