Canadian wealth management firm honoured in US

International recognition for company deemed ‘best-in-class’

We’re getting closer and closer to what we feel are the “Academy Awards for Financial Advisors” – our own Wealth Professional Awards (nominate now), which celebrate the cream of the crop in Canada. However, one Canadian company has managed to earn recognition beyond the border.

The company in question is Northland Wealth Management, which received the Best Canadian Multi-Family Office award at the Family Wealth Report Awards in New York City.

The honour is designed to celebrate companies offering excellence and innovation in their field, with CEO and CIO of Northland Wealth Management Arthur Salzer delighted about the triumph.

“For the second consecutive year, we have been recognized as best-in-class, and are honoured that Northland Wealth is becoming known as the independent alternative to bank-owned advisory firms,” he said in an official release. “Our open-architecture platform, which accesses the same alternative investment opportunities and managers utilized by Canadian pension plans, is a unique offering, as these are not available through typical advisory channels.”

Paul Mascard, the President of Northland Wealth Management, believes the honour is a sign that the company is achieving its goal of helping families.

“Canadian families of significant wealth deserve tailored, financial planning and investment services, delivered with transparency and without conflicted interest,” he said. “We are proud to offer that, and more.”

In addition, Arthur Salzar was also the only Canadian to reach the final in the category of leading individual multi-family office – North America.
