Arthur Salzer and then Northland Wealth have been my family’s advisor and my confidant for the past 10 years. My family involves multiple family trusts and many personal accounts for myself, my five children, my brother and his wife. Suffice to say, there is added complexity as many of us live in various countries around the world – Canada, Europe, the United States, the Caribbean and Asia.

My family has found Arthur and his team to be consistent and remarkable in providing top service, investment management and advice on matters unrelated to investments in a wide range of subject matters. Moreover, Arthur has carved out a unique niche in alternative investments with both expertise and access to institutional type investments not normally available to high net worth individuals and families in Canada. This is particularly reassuring in the high volatile market when stability of price and returns is more important than seeking the highest return available. The entire Northland team is not only available but responsive to all our needs, as my adult children are receiving their education in sound investing.

Arthur has dealt with arranging cell phones for my children in university, recommending top notch professionals outside of his expertise and generally being there like a solid rock helping my family weather any storm. Only very recently, Arthur literally came to my rescue, putting me on the path to save my life, when I required a heart specialist to perform a needed procedure on my heart. As the specialist needed was not to be found anywhere near where I resided, Arthur took the initiative by finding doctors who operated within weeks. But for his timely intervention I might have died as I was in a highly dangerous life or death situation!

On other occasions, Arthur has acted as a calming influence within the wider family when there have been disputes involving money that are influenced by personalities, family history, lawyers and trustees. Arthur, being an independent, trusted advisor, with no bias, being entirely objective and having the best interests of us all, has been able to help us in attitude adjustment, to at least see and understand the other side, to always reach an amicable accord. Without these skills, managing wealth in a vacuum, regardless of result, is incomplete. It is these soft skills that are so very important! 

On more than one occasion, Arthur and I have had strenuous disagreements on investment approach. These debates were vigorous, healthy, and respectful and we always came to agreement in the end. Like being in a marriage, all is not forever smooth; however, we have thrived over time, the test of a meaningful and lasting relationship. 

I am most satisfied with his performance, the returns and his approach to investing having regard to our objectives. As an ol' fox who has been around for almost 4 score, I hope to be with him another 10 plus years as I pass the mantle to the next generation in safe hands.


My family has entrusted family trusts to Arthur Salzer for many years now. Arthur combines the ingredients of sound professional judgment, common sense, research, sensitivity to the volatility of the market, capital preservation and income cash flow. Given the global financial uncertainty and the ripple effect for us in Canada, Arthur has expanded the horizons of diversification for his clients in an astute manner. He continues to investigate other potential alternate investments for his clients and he stays ahead of the curve. Sensitive to cash flow, the income returns are superior, be they from dividend paying equities or alternate investments.

He is blessed to be part of a dedicated team of professionals that includes a client service manager who stick handles all complex, simple and detailed, administrative matters that allow for the smooth and efficient operations of Northland Wealth Management and their dealings with clients, custodians and third parties. The service has been consistently excellent throughout our relationship.

The entire team works in an exceptional manner for the benefit of Northland Wealth’s clients and their expertise ranges from long-term family and estate planning to asset allocation decisions. They never stand still and are always doing their due diligence research that includes travels abroad, searching for new and innovative investments, all for the ultimate benefit of clients. I feel secure in the knowledge that Arthur and his team will take care of my family’s interests for the next two generations.

My wife and I are pleased to write this letter of reference on behalf of Northland Wealth Management. Although the company has only been operational for a short time, the team of Paul Mascard and Arthur Salzer have provided sound guidance in all aspects regarding the management of our family’s wealth for many years. We have been more than satisfied with the investment results achieved in that time. Although it is not difficult to experience investment growth when the markets are doing well, the test of good portfolio management is the performance during market downturns. We are impressed with the ability to maintain the value of our portfolio during periods of market volatility. As a result, we have full confidence that they will steer us into retirement with the funds necessary to continue to enjoy our current lifestyle. Of particular importance to us is the personal attention that we receive through newsletters and quarterly meetings with Paul and Arthur at our home. We are kept appraised of the latest developments in the markets and the decisions taken to maintain growth in our portfolio. As well, both Paul and Arthur are available at any time to
answer questions and address our concerns. Consequently, Linda and I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Northland Wealth Management.

Some time ago we selected an Investment Management team that has since delivered on their promise of unbiased advice based on a clear understanding of our personal family situation and financial goals. Because of our complete confidence in their ability, the personal service we receive and the mutual trust we share we have followed them to their new firm where we are now pleased to be clients of Northland Wealth Management.

We met with Arthur and Jeff at a point when we were contemplating a change from our previous portfolio manager. They came; They saw; They assured us that their firm would exceed our expectations. An integrated solution, that even included planning and investments for our children, is exactly what they promised and have certainly delivered. Although the markets have been on a “roller coaster ride” for some time, we remain confident with our decision to engage these advisors for the task at hand.

We met Arthur and Paul many years ago. Since that time they have provided sound and honest advice for both our investment goals and financial planning. We have every confidence in their ability to successfully manage our investments. We also appreciate the personal service they provide and the relationship we have developed.

Aurora, Ontario

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to Paul and Jeff for taking over the responsibility of my financial portfolio. The contrast between Northland Wealth and the previous company that I dealt with for approximately forty years is unbelievable. I am treated as an individual with respect. A comprehensive assessment of my financial portfolio has led to a plan of action that meets my specific needs at this time of my life. All questions or issues that I may have are explained in a clear and comprehensive manner in a timely fashion. Client service and reliability are clearly valued. It is with a great deal of confidence that I would recommend Northland Wealth to all individuals.
