Todd Porterfield, CFP®, RICP ®  

Formal Introductions

Hello, my name is Todd Porterfield, and I am the founder and owner of Fairchild Capital.  Fairchild Capital is a firm created to help people with the biggest decision of their life--retirement.

Assembling the pieces that you need for a retirement income plan requires the skill and training of a specialist.  The average financial planner is a general practitioner.  You need a specialist.

My specialty is helping clients plan and transition into retirement and delivering the retirement cash flow that we have projected. 

Retirement does not mean that you must retire.  It means that the choice is now yours.  You have reached a point in your life where you can choose what you want to do with your time and how you want to live.  

I have 18 years of experience working as a financial planner.  I grew up on a ranch in the shadow of Mt. Shasta, traveled all over the West, and graduated from Oregon State University before relocating to Portland.  I enjoy the arts and culture of Portland, and feel my best being an outdoorsman, spending time hiking and camping in the Oregon Wilderness.


I am active in the community as a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and as a supporter of the Oregon Humane Society.
