About Us

We are a group of experienced financial professionals dedicated to one simple goal: Keeping Our Clients At The Center Of Everything We Do. We work with individuals, families, and businesses to meet their financial needs.

What is Tallus

Tallus is the supporting rock under a cliff face. We like to think of it as, Us as professionals supporting You as we navigate the risk of the global financial markets together.

History of Tallus

Managing Director and Founder, John Easley, had worked with a number of firms, most notably Merrill Lynch, where he was the sales manager for the Seattle Complex and in charge of the new advisor training program. These prior firms all had one thing in common, they were not as client focused as John felt they should be.

It was with his passion for the capital markets and conviction towards client care that John H Easley III founded Tallus in 2009. These qualities remain the primary focus today; Independent advice, no proprietary products, and comprehensive wealth strategies resulting in custom plans built around each client with their priorities first. Each individual that John has recruited to Tallus Capital Management shares a similar value set and commitment to client care.

No Boxes

Our process starts with a deep conversation to learn more about you rather than having you fill out a questionnaire that leads you to a predetermined portfolio. It’s not our portfolio; it’s yours and customized around you.

No Sales Quotas

We have no sales quotas to meet. Not this week, next quarter, or the end of the year.

No Custody of Funds

We only work with trusted institutions who will have custody of your funds. You’ll never write a check directly to Tallus Capital Management or your advisor.

No Rookies

Everyone on our team has years of experience and industry qualifications. Your financial strategy is not our experiment.

No Banking/Mortgages

We only focus on financial advisement. We’re not a bank or lender looking to issue another loan.

No Proprietary Products

We don’t issue, underwrite, or produce any of the products that we offer. There is no incentive for us to offer one product over another.
