The NORTHSTAR client

experience is a collaborative

approach to managing your money, for the rest of your life.


What’s Your WealthVision


As a fee-only, fiduciary advisor, our focus and highest priority is on your highest interests. Discovering who you are and what you want out of life is a critical first step toward ensuring that we manage your wealth accordingly. We set aside upfront time to explore your personal relationships, interests and dynamics; professional pursuits and succession-planning requirements; philanthropy and community interests; and your range of assets and liabilities, financial goals and challenges.


We build your plan and structure your financial affairs with an eye toward achieving and sustaining your desired lifestyle through the years – during earning and accumulation, and onward into a satisfying retirement. To optimize your experience, we integrate evidence-based investment management with organized advanced planning, with a “best of” approach that blends our own experience with select alliances to address any specialized needs you may face.


Even the best-laid plans are subject to change. Your personal goals change, calling for revised structure. The world spins and markets move, calling for disciplined portfolio rebalancing. Outside influences throw you curve balls to catch or avoid, calling for adept adaptations. The point isn’t to avoid making changes, but to make them deliberately and cost-effectively, guided by reason and resolve rather than rash reaction.
