When you find your true north, everything aligns.

We formed True North Investment Partners not only as a partnership for our advisors and employees, but also to create long-term partnerships with you, our clients. Our mission is clear: know our clients, be a partner to them, and help them achieve their goals through appropriate investments and planning. We work to simplify the complexities of investments, providing a clear breakdown of your portfolio and helping you understand what you own and why you own it.

We partner with pre-retirees and retirees, as well as the next generation of investors looking to secure their financial futures. We often work with multiple generations of families. We are here to guide you to retirement and through it as your long-term financial partner.
