Our Story

With a passion to ease and enrich our clients’ lives, Allium Financial Advisors was founded in 2016 in Portland, Oregon. Throughout our careers, we learned that there is a disconnect when managing a client’s portfolio without a complete understanding of their financial picture or underlying mission. We are more than an investment management firm. Our team accounts for all of life’s layers. We invest in you so that we can do our best work for you.

Our Team

At the end of the day, our team is your team. We proactively and collaboratively work with you to understand your goals and achieve them.
