About Spectrum Financial Partners

Our Advisors provide independent, local, and full-service personal wealth management through our SEC-Registered Investment Adviser. Providing this service that allows you to focus on the most important things in your life.

We look to build long-term relationships built on trust. Keeping your best interests front and center, we break down your sometimes complex and confusing financial lives into manageable and actionable parts.

Then, year after year, we help keep you on track within your unique vision for the future.

Local - Based in Bellevue and Seattle, we live and work in your community, the Pacific Northwest. Our business is built on decades' worth of local relationships. When you need something that is beyond our capacity, we probably know someone local who can help.

Straight talk - We will tell you what you need to know, not what we think you want to hear.

Meet you where you are at - Whether you are an engineer who takes great comfort in spreadsheets and sophisticated analytical illustrations or a person for whom "graph" is a dirty word, our job is to explain findings and recommendations in the way that works best for you. We will not use jargon to impress or confuse you.

We want to help you achieve financial independence. Our twin obsessions: Make sure - to the best of our ability - you don't run out of money. Help you achieve the life you want to live.

Eric Chaney

Eric Chaney

Eric wants to live in a world filled with people who are at financial peace, unburdened by the anxiety that comes with trying to figure out how to never go broke. He also wants to live in a world where markets only go up, people never become chronically ill, and emergencies never occur. Unfortunately, that world doesn't exist.

As a financial advisor and planner with more than 20 years of experience, he's worked with clients as young as 1 and as old as 93. He's seen clients' toddlers graduate from college, attended many retirement parties, and managed to navigate through some of the most tumultuous markets years in the history of our nation. That look in his eye is the look of someone who's seen it all but is always looking to learn more and pass that knowledge on.

When he's not helping families of special needs children and adults figure out how to make their money last two lifetimes, you'll find him spending time with his patient and big-hearted wife, Heather, and their two wonderful children. His oldest is autistic (and amazing) and that has been a driving force behind his goal to be a significant long-term resource for other families that want to know that (a) its going to be okay, (b) they aren't alone, and (c) people are here to help. Eric knows first-hand how hard it is to plan for two lifetimes, let alone one.

My Services

Financial Advice & Consulting

The Advisors at Spectrum Financial Partners have been helping to create and maintain financial independence for their clients since 1998. SFP specializes in helping retirees and pre-retirees, families with children and loved ones with special needs and tech professionals.

Financial Planning for Individuals

It's more than the math, its the path. The best financial plan is not only one that works out mathematically, but is motivating enough to you to do it! Designing a plan that makes you feel comfortable, confident and in control means that we have succeeded.

Investment Advice & Management

Clients entrust us with their life savings. When we manage assets we are fiduciaries and steward these financial assets with a disciplined and transparent process. Our investment recommendations consider the context of the entire household financial situation, goals, risk tolerance and stage of life. The performance of financial markets is outside our control, but how we invest is fully within our control. So that's where we focus our efforts. We'll keep it simple, so you understand what you own, and avoid complicated esoteric strategies. We also feel that clients should only take the risk they need to take to accomplish their goals. No more, no less. At some point, we'll begin to focus less on growing your money and more about keeping it. Take only as much risk as needed to achieve your goals, in a cost-conscious manner. Tax sensitive and SRI (Socially Responsible Investments) are objectives when clients need and want them. 20+ years of experience and continual current research as well as collaboration with Commonwealth and Fidelity Institutional gives our clients a depth and breadth of experience that is hard to match.
