The History of Northwest Quadrant
Beginnings: the 1960’s and 1970’s
The company’s roots began in 1963 operating first as Sage Insurance, and later as Bill Moore and Associates. Our founder, Bill Moore, began his career selling insurance while attending the University of Oregon, and opened his first office inside of a now-defunct Sears department store in Central Oregon. He honed his investing skills through the roaring nifty-fifty market of the late 60’s, and persevered as a value-centric investor through the stagnation of the 1970’s.
Evolution: the 1980’s and 1990’s
In 1982, Bill sold the P&C and health insurance portions of the business and began focusing exclusively on investing and financial planning. His prowess as a stock-picker and love for equity markets quickly grew the business through the thriving stock market of the late 80’s and 90’s, and still serves as a basis for our company culture’s detailed and obsessive passion for markets and investing.
Growth: the 2000’s
In 2004, Troy Reinhart, formerly one of Bill’s Boy Scouts in the late 70’s, returned to Bend to join the company at Bill’s behest after crisscrossing the country working in corporate America. Just two years later in 2006, the company passed $100 million in assets under management and adopted the new moniker of Northwest Quadrant—solidified as Northwest Quadrant Wealth Management in 2008 when Tyler Simones joined as a partner.
Amid the Great Financial Crisis, the company expanded to John Day and Portland, and began the Financial Focus Radio show in late 2008 with the goal of bringing transparent, no-nonsense advice to listeners. Meanwhile, our strict adherence to diligent, process-oriented investing and value-inspired principles paid off—and the company emerged from the crisis stronger than ever, managing more than $200m in assets.
50 Years in Oregon: 2013 and Beyond
The company continued to expand, adding Partner Josh Fenili in 2014, and crossed the $300m threshold in assets under management in 2016 when we opened an office in Eugene. The Financial Focus Radio show celebrated the broadcast of its 500th episode in 2018. Northwest Quadrant now serves clients in more than 30 states from our four Oregon offices.
