True North Advisors Recognized as Top Wealth Management Firm and Best Financial Planner by D Magazine
November 18, 2022 (Hotel Drover, Fort Worth) – True North is honored to announce that we have been recognized as one of D Magazine’s Top Wealth Management Firms and Best Financial Planners in their annual Best of List. We are extremely grateful to our team for their commitment to innovation and out-of-the-box thinking that continues to propel the firm forward.
In 2018, there was an increase in demand for institutional quality wealth and investment management solutions in North Texas. We identified an opportunity to bridge that gap and opened an additional True North office in the heart of Fort Worth’s cultural district. Of the firm’s $2.9B+1 assets under management, over $700 million2 of those are across Fort Worth and West Texas.
Since opening our Tarrant County location, we host an all-day meeting in Fort Worth each Fall to collaborate, strategize, and connect with our peers. This gives us an opportunity to reflect on our expansion, consider our next best opportunities, and discuss how we can continue to enhance our offering, elevate our client experience, and enrich the culture of our team.
This year, we are proud to highlight and recognize our advisory team, wealth planning team, investment team, and operations team for their incredible contribution to the firm. It’s because of their willingness to succeed and dedication to our clients, colleagues, and community that we continue to receive such achievements.
