About My Practice
The NorthStar Capital Group provides comprehensive financial planning and investment management to families, businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals. Sensitive to each client's unique circumstances and objectives, we focus on achieving those objectives. We believe a deep understanding of each client is essential to providing the advice over the long-term that makes achievement of those objectives both possible and likely.
We believe that careful planning is vital to the achievement of long-term goals. All aspects of our client's financial lives, from investment and retirement planning to insurance and estate planning, must be incorporated into a coordinated strategy for optimal effectiveness. Then an appropriate portfolio can be constructed, with emphasis on asset allocation, diversification and the utilization of professional money managers. Communication with our clients is critical in order for appropriate adjustments to be made as circumstances dictate. A dedication to customer education and service is at the core of our beliefs.
