The beginning of a New Year is typically a time for reflection on the previous year and dedication to change and improvements for the next. 2016 was a particularly eventful year as equity markets rebounded from a large sell-off in January, interest rates most likely hit their generational low in July and politically we saw Brexit and the election of a presidential underdog in the United States.
At Northland Wealth our commitment to placing your family first and foremost by continually improving and broadening our services is at the heart of our firm. We understand that having a prosperous family requires cohesiveness that is created through communication, education and involvement across all of its generations. Working with an independent, multi-family office like Northland Wealth is a good first step, as we provide unbiased advice and guidance and allow a family to aggregate its resources with others to obtain difficult-to-access institutional-quality traditional and alternative investments.
This approach differentiates Northland Wealth and its professionals from the bank-owned investment counsellors, asset managers and advisors in Canada. This difference has not gone unnoticed; for the third year in a row, members of Northland Wealth will be travelling to New York City to compete in two of North America’s most prestigious industry award events.
We are honoured to share the news that Northland Wealth has been shortlisted for the categories of Best Multi-Family Office – under $2 Billion, Best Outsourced Chief Investment Officer and Best Multi-Family Office – Client Service – Under $2 BN at the upcoming Private Asset Management (PAM) Magazine Awards and for the category of Best Canadian Multi-Family Office and Best Outsourced Chief Investment Manager at the Family Wealth Report Awards.
As well, CEO Arthur Salzer, is a finalist in the categories of Leading Individual (Multi-Family Office) and Leading Individual (Multi-Family Office Executive). This is a major achievement, as Arthur is the only Canadian executive or advisor to compete against the heads of the major banks, trust companies and family offices from the United States. Please wish us luck.
In this edition of The Artisan, our feature story is Enhancing Family Capital, which focuses on improving the family’s balance sheet. We then provide an introduction to Blockchain, and describe how it is revolutionizing the financial industry. We share all of this along with our market insights and more. Lastly, from everyone at Northland Wealth we wish you and your family a healthy, happy and prosperous 2017!
