Northland Wealth - First Canadian Family Office to Win Best MFO at Family Wealth Report Awards
Updated: Apr 23
When Northland Wealth was founded 8 years ago, it was with the mission of providing independent, unbiased advice combined with the overriding mandate of protecting and carefully growing each family’s wealth over generations to come. We knew Canadian families deserved more than what was and is available in Canada through the banks, brokerages and insurance companies.
We are humbled that at the two leading private wealth awards events in North America, Northland Wealth was recognized with the highest honours. At the 2019 Family Wealth Report Awards Northland Wealth was named Best Multi-Family Office (North America) – Under $2.5 Billion in assets advised and was recognized as Highly Commended in the category of Best Multi-Family Office (North America) – Client Service – Under $2 Billion at the 2019 Private Asset Management Awards.
As the only Canadian firm to have ever been recognized at these events in the United States, it is a testament to Northland Wealth’s focus on going above and beyond for the families we serve. From all of us at Northland Wealth, we wish to thank you and your family for placing your trust in us to advise, educate and support your family through some of life’s most difficult challenges.
The Family Wealth Report Awards, which are now in their 6th year, showcase 'best of breed' providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities. These awards were designed to recognize companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have 'demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2018'. As in previous years, independence, integrity and genuine insight were the watchwords of the judging process. The expert panel of judges was drawn from both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector.
Upon delivering the award to Northland Wealth, the judges commented
"with a holistic offering and diverse service platform, our winner is enthusiastically committed to the Canadian business families community".
Commenting on the firm's accomplishment, Arthur Salzer, CEO of Northland Wealth said: "As the only independent Canadian firm to ever win at the Family Wealth Report Awards, it is a testament to Northland Wealth's combination of unique access to 'best in class' alternative investment opportunities in areas such as private equity, real estate and hedge funds along with our extensive financial planning and concierge services. We are dedicated to providing unbiased advice and solutions, tailored to the unique needs of each family, with the mission of protecting and carefully growing each family's wealth over generations to come."
"We are honoured and wish to thank our clients for placing their trust in Northland Wealth to educate, guide and support their families through some of life's most difficult challenges. It is rewarding, especially when Canadians find it challenging to obtain advice free of conflicts, to be acknowledged for making a difference."
