Hey, thanks for scrolling down! I’m Ted Guerin, Blueprint is my company. My mantra in life is “learn how the machine works” and I’ve spent over 10 years in various roles (management, sales, product rollout training, and running my own RIA) figuring it out. Blueprint is the culmination of my knowledge and expertise in financial planning, asset management, alternative investments, and estate planning.
I moved to Portland in 2004, after graduating from the University of Oregon, to pursue a career in finance and have been here ever since. Beyond work and family, the community is a very important part of my life, I have volunteered with many organizations throughout the city, including Minds Matter of Portland, Portland Art Museum, Make a Wish Foundation, & Lundquist College of Business Alumni Club. I now live (and work) in Grant Park with my wife, 6-year-old twin girls and our cat, Floyd.
I do things a little differently at Blueprint, most financial firms offer “free” advice in order to sell products that may or may not be suitable, we don’t sell products. As a Fee-Only firm I charge for my time and advice, you are free to implement that plan wherever you like, on your own terms. I have an ardent interest in behavioral economics. Money is emotional, it is personal, my ethos is centered on a holistic planning to help identify and achieve your most important personal and financial goals. This is done effectively by really getting to know what keeps my clients up at night, gets them up in the morning, and learn where they want to go and why. At the end of the day, my goal is to increase my clients happiness, decrease their worry, and improve their financial picture, and I’ll keep working until those goals are met.
