NORTHWOOD FAMILY OFFICE
Canada’s family office.
Northwood Family Office is an independent, privately-owned boutique family office, which provides comprehensive Net Worth Management™ to wealthy Canadian and global families. It acts as the personal chief financial officer for clients so as to coordinate and manage their investments, financial affairs and family issues.
At Northwood, we start with the premise that the management of net worth must be planned and managed on an integrated basis. Just like a successful business brings together disciplines to work cooperatively (eg. sales and marketing, accounting, finance, operations, legal, etc.), families of substantial wealth must also take a coordinated approach to their affairs.
“Wealth is much more than just investments. Our role, as a family office, is to develop an integrated plan for family wealth, and then identify areas requiring specific expertise and attention.”
Chairman and CEO, Northwood Family Office
Northwood was conceived from its co-founder Tom McCullough’s desire for a truly ‘comprehensive, customized and confidential’ service to meet his family’s needs. While multi-family offices were well-developed in the U.S. and growing rapidly as wealthy families seek out objective advice and boutique-style service, in the early 2000s they were virtually non-existent in Canada.
Founded in 2003, by Chairman and CEO Tom McCullough and President Scott Hayman, Northwood has quickly become one of the leaders in its field and has been regularly selected as ‘the #1 independent family office in Canada’ in Euromoney’s Global Private Banking survey.
The Northwood team has a broad range of backgrounds and experience, which gives us the depth and specialized skills to deal with the complexities of family financial issues.
Our people are experts and have held senior roles across the breadth of the financial services industry. Our principals regularly lecture on issues pertaining to families of wealth and hold positions in Canadian faculties including the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management and Western University’s Ivey School of Business.
Tom McCullough is the co-author of Wealth of Wisdom: The Top 50 Questions Wealthy Families Ask and Family Wealth Management: 7 Imperatives for Successful Investing in the New World Order.
Our unique Net Worth Management™ approach starts with an overall view of a family’s wealth. From here we follow a three stage approach, cherry picking best-in-class solutions that are expertly coordinated to meet the singular challenges faced by each family.
