TORONTO, March 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Northland Wealth Management, a leader in the North American wealth management industry, achieved another pinnacle distinction recently, bringing home to Canada top honours from the 2016 Family Wealth Report Awards held in New York City.
Showcasing 'best of breed' providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the Family Wealth Report Awards recognises companies, teams and individuals across North America who have 'demonstrated innovation and excellence' in 2015, as determined by a prestigious panel of judges with deep expertise in these fields.
Northland Wealth Management was considered for this honour amongst its family office and wealth management peers, and again received international recognition as Best Canadian Multi-Family Office at the Family Wealth Report's annual awards gala, held on March 10, 2016, attended by over 450 senior banking and wealth management professionals.
"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," said Arthur Salzer, CEO & CIO of Northland Wealth Management. "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."
"This accolade highlights the fact that our goal of helping families avoid the shirt-sleeves-to-shirt-sleeves in three generations proverb is being celebrated," said Paul Mascard, President of Northland Wealth Management. "Canadian families of significant wealth deserve tailored, financial planning and investment services, delivered with transparency and without conflicted interest. We are proud to offer that, and more."
Judges commented, "It was Northland Wealth's disciplined, comprehensive approach that has made them a leader in holistic wealth planning."
Also of note, Arthur Salzer was the only Canadian finalist in the category of Leading Individual Multi-Family Office - North America.
ClearView Financial Media's CEO, and Publisher of Family Wealth Report, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: "The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants' submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered with focus on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with 'independence', 'integrity' and 'genuine insight' having been the watchwords of the judging process. As such, these awards reflect true excellence in wealth management."
