Bill Stoddart

President and Founder
Bill Stoddart has been personally involved in social finance and values-based investing since the early 1990s and professionally since 2006. After five years as a Financial Consultant with a regional broker-dealer, Bill started NorthFork Financial in 2011. Based on his experiences on both sides of the desk, Bill built NorthFork Financial using a fiduciary business model in which clients’ interests always come first. He also has honed his expertise in values-based Socially Responsible and Impact Investing, integrating clients’ personal values and goals with both public and private investment opportunities.

Bill is a frequent attendee and contributor to several conferences each year. Under Bill’s guidance, NorthFork Financial became a certified B Corp in 2016, acknowledged for meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Bill is the co-founder of HomeStake Venture Partners, a Montana Benefit Corporation created to address the related problems of access to friendly, patient capital for businesses, small to medium-sized companies’ need for advanced technical assistance, and the interest of investors to find alternatives to Wall Street.

Bill graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in History in 1989, obtained his M.A. in History at Montana State University in 1996 and spent nine years teaching AP U.S. History and Government at Bozeman High School. Beyond work and volunteering on a number of nonprofit boards, including the Bozeman Public Library Foundation, Headwaters Economics and the Montana Wilderness School, he and his family spend as much time as possible adventuring outdoors.
