As a fiduciary, Northern Lights sits on the same side of the table as you.
We work for you - and only you.
PRESERVING AND GROWING WEALTH
Northern Lights Registered Investment Advisors offers a full range of financial, planning, and investment advisory services. We identify goals, set a course for achievement, take action, and continuously monitor the plan. In addition to our services, Northern Lights strives to develop a common bond forged by our openness and responsiveness, trust created by our independence and a confidence that comes from our unique experience.
We provide independent, objective advice tailored to meet the needs of our clients. Our strategic long-term investment philosophy is tailored to incorporate each client’s personal risk profile and return targets within an efficient portfolio structure.
To ensure our objectivity, Northern Lights is registered as an Investment Advisor, which requires us to act solely in the interest of our clients.
We don’t sell in-house products and we don’t collect commissions from sales.
We are compensated solely by our clients for the advisory services we provide.
We have no reason to push a specific product or service in your direction.
We provide clients with an objective, pure, open-architecture advisory environment.
Many financial advisors are paid in some way by commissions and typically work for large financial services firms known as Broker-Dealers. Broker-Dealer representatives are not held to the same fiduciary standards to act in their client’s best interest as are registered investment advisers such as Northern Lights.
At Northern Lights, we believe our fee-based approach, experienced personnel and the range of services provided sets us apart from most firms.
As a fiduciary, registered investment advisers such as Northern Lights are legally required to act in a client's best interest, which includes full disclosure of compensation and any potential conflicts of interest. Many of the prospective clients Northern Lights meets with are unaware that representatives of banks and broker-dealers may not be held to the same fiduciary standard. Northern Lights' fee-only structure is designed to ensure that assets are managed in the best interest of each client without the influence of commissions or other financial incentives.
To us, being a fiduciary means we can sit on the same side of the table as our clients and tell them we work for them—and only them.
