Meet The Team
Grant F. Carroll
Grant is a people person. His friendly and warm nature means no one is a stranger for long. He is passionate about understanding clients’ personal and emotional needs, then educating and empowering them to make wise stewardship decisions for their families and businesses. The right mix of slapstick humor and intellectual skills allow him to make the financial planning process understandable, executable, and a good time for clients.
He is one of the managing partners and founders of Strategic Financial Partners, Ltd. He started his career in 1996 after graduating from Central Washington University. He is a past board member of the Oregon Fellowship of Christian Athletes and continues to support its causes today. He currently spends his time split between Portland, Oregon and Bend, Oregon. His love of all things outdoors makes the Pacific Northwest his playground. Horseback riding, bird hunting, Harley riding, paddle boarding, water and snow skiing keep him outdoors and active. Charley and Sydney – a German wirehaired pointer and Brittney spaniel - are his trusted companions on most adventures.
