We are Nevis Financial


  • We are an independent, client centered, financial services firm located in Redmond, Washington. 


  • We are proud to work with a diverse clientele, from individuals and families to small business owners and professionals, with the goal of addressing a wide range of financial needs.  Most of our clients live and work on the west coast of the US.


  • While we offer a wide range of financial services, we specialize in comprehensive fee-based financial planning for clients who want a full-service, ongoing relationship with a credentialed, principled Certified Financial Planner™. 


We’ll tell you the whole financial story – not just in the charts and numbers that support an initial conversation, but in a narrative that answers your questions about not only if your plans and ideas will work but how they will come together to create the life you want.  We will develop an action plan to help you reach each of your goals, setting timelines and responsibilities to ensure success.  And we will periodically evaluate progress, adding in new issues as they arise and resolving changing priorities to keep you on track for the long term.

Through a credentialed, independent financial planner, Nevis Financial offers access to a broad array of products and services.  We are proud to work through Woodbury Financial Services, Inc. (member FINRA, SIPC,) a broker-dealer with a reputation as one of the most dependable, ethical and well-positioned firms in the industry.


  • Chris Cahoon, CFP® is the financial planner behind Nevis Financial.  We get our name from Ben Nevis - the highest mountain in the British Isles and located in Scotland.  (The Cahoon family is from Scotland.)  The multi-peaked mountain is a symbol of our comprehensive, collaborative, ongoing approach to helping our clients achieve their goals. 

Why CFP® Certification Matters

Although many professionals may call themselves “financial planners”, only those who have completed the extensive training and requirements of the CFP® Board can call themselves a Certified Financial Planner™. CFP® certificants have met the Board’s education, examination, and experience requirements. They also agree to adhere to high standards of ethical conduct, annual continued education, and pledge to keep their clients best interests as the top priority.
