Martin Lundgren is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.
NAPFA members live by three important values:
- To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
- To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
- To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning
Northern Lights strongly believes the most important aspect of financial planning is to develop a long term sustainable plan that is continually being adjusted as life happens. This plan will look differently for each client and contains the following areas: investments, retirement, cash flow, insurance reviews, estate planning, foreign and domestic tax review, and other aspects of a client’s financial life. We believe that a one-time planning meeting will not fit most people and much more value is involved with a continuous process and many touch points.
In terms of investment philosophy, we at Northern Lights will develop a long-term asset allocation, and will adjust this in order to take advantage of opportunities in the markets. We believe the most long-term value is gained from an efficient asset allocation, revised tactical changes, and lastly selecting low cost quality managers in order to implement the most effective investment solution for our clients.
