With our roots dating back to 1999, Clarius has served as a fiduciary to individuals and families throughout the Northwest and beyond.
Clarius exists for one purpose – to work in service for our client families. With that singular focus, we pioneered our vision for a shared family office model. Our goal is for each family to experience the benefits of a private family office – professional stewardship with aligned, service-driven partners.
As your family office, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of security, integrity, and transparency. By proactively managing all things financial for your family, we aim to deliver time, peace of mind, and economic results so that you can focus on what matters to you.
Families would not accept a lack of alignment from their lawyers or accountants, but it is commonplace in the financial advisory world. Clarius’ shared family office model, with alignment at its core, stands in stark contrast to industry norms. Our approach starts with a philosophy that we exist to serve our clients and that our clients’ interests sit above all others. This perspective guides everything we do; from the services and advice we provide to the way we manage the firm.
Leveraging work published by leading family offices, we embrace the belief that clients have fundamental rights in our partnership. We manage to these rights, and we believe families should require these from their fiduciary service providers.
The Right to Clarity – Transparency in an advisory relationship is fundamental.
The Right to Security – In today’s world, protecting client privacy and information integrity is paramount.
The Right to Loyalty – A fiduciary must always put client interests above all others.
The Right to Collaboration – Your family office must facilitate communication across all stakeholders so that you benefit from collective best thinking.
The Right to Mastery – Your advisors should pursue the highest standard of excellence.
The Right to Permanence – Your family office should be managed to survive generations.
A deep and ongoing understanding of your situation and objectives is at the core of everything we do. This insight drives the shared agreement of a strategic road map to achieve your goals and encompasses the key pillars of your financial life, including: investments, taxes, estate planning, and philanthropy. Our experienced team also manages all the tactical steps required to keep your financial life secure and in order.
We know that when we remove this burden from clients, they free their minds and flourish in their individual passions, such as family, philanthropy, and business.
For the past 20+ years, we have defined our services as “anything financial” that our families need. Everyone’s lives and goals are unique. Our Family Office approach is designed to reflect that reality by providing you with truly tailored services including the following.
