About Me

Hi, I'm Chad Duncan. I created Minimalist Financial® for those who want to simplify their financial lives. To have a person that understands their unique financial situation, to bounce questions off of, to provide a second opinion on your current plans, and to help make money less stressful.

I graduated with a B.A. in Finance from George Fox University, and went on to receive my Masters in Financial Planning from Golden Gate University. I did these to ensure that I could take complex financial topics and distill it into the most important things to actually consider.
