Founded in 2011, Northland Wealth Management is an independent Canadian multi-family office and wealth advisory service with an open-architecture platform. Northland Wealth Management provides clients access to ‘institutional quality traditional and alternative investment opportunities’ and is ‘dedicated to providing objective and comprehensive advice with a focus on financial and estate planning, family governance, closely held business and succession issues’.
In a press release announcing the recognition, Northland Wealth Management’s President, Paul Mascard, said the staff at the firm is proud of the industry recognition that the firm’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, Arthur Salzer, has earned. housing
“It is due to Arthur’s vision, innovation and determination that Northland is the leading “made in Canada” family office – providing families of significant wealth tailored financial planning and industry leading investment services, delivered with transparency and without conflict,” said Paul Mascard.
Arthur Salzer commented that it’s a “true honour to have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards and be amongst the best and brightest in the field of wealth management. This acknowledgement is a testament to the dedication of everyone at Northland Wealth to providing world-class service.”
The publisher of Family Wealth Report, Stephen Harris, congratulated the shortlisted firms, saying: “The firms who have been shortlisted in these awards are all worthy competitors, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards are judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature.”
The Family Wealth Report does analysis of the wealth management industry and provides “need to know” information straight to subscribers in its online publication. The publication’s industry awards recognize three main areas: experts (individuals and teams), products and services for wealth managers and clients/institutions of all sizes and types. Its judging process is conducted by an expert panel drawn from both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector.
Report publisher Stephen Harris adds that, “these awards will recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management. Our aim is to make these annual Awards one of the brightest and keenly contested highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
Last June, Northland Wealth Management won the coveted ‘Portfolio Manager of the Year’ distinction at the 2016 Canadian Wealth Professional Awards. ‘Portfolio Manager of the Year’ is an award for excellence which recognizes the Canadian portfolio manager that delivered unparalleled performance to their clients. When it received the award, Northland Wealth Management CEO Arthur Salzer spoke of the company’s “one-of-a-kind open-architecture platform [which] provides access to the alternative investment opportunities and managers utilized by the Canadian pension plans. This is not available for families through typical advisory channels.”
Northland Wealth Management was also a finalist in two other categories at last June’s gala event, which was attended by over 400 industry leaders.
