We Help Investors Improve Their Financial Wellness
TruNorth Capital is devoted to help people improve their financial wellness and the founders honed their intelligent investment strategies over decades of experience at leading firms like Goldman Sachs and Greenleaf Trust. The TruNorth Capital story really began in 2001, when wealth management experts Brian and John began working together, managing investment assets and relationships for clients and corporations. TruNorth Capital's culture, philosophy and strategy is a direct result of what they've learned over the years. Towards the end of 2012, they realized it was the time to launch an investment advisory firm of their own to benefit their clients and the people they care about the most. In 2019, Kevin Miller joined the TruNorth Capital team as its Vice President and as a partner. And in 2020, TruNorth Capital reached another milestone - given its growth in assets under management, TruNorth Capital is now registered with and regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
