About Northern Lights Advisors: Martin

Martin's story

Relatability and kinship make for strong working relationships (so does sharing a hike or a paddle on the water!).

Perhaps you work in the tech industry and earn more than expected, but you know there is more potential to reach that next tier or two. 

Whether you’re planning to purchase a second home, need long-term care and estate planning for your parents, or want help to determine what to do with your stock-based compensation, your interests and financial considerations can be a little more intricate than you expected. 

We might work well together if…

You realize that the execution and management of your financial life requires a holistic view that factors in optimizing your savings, where to allocate your monies, how to pay less taxes, how soon you can retire, etc. At the same time, you demand financial peace of mind so you can fully engage in life, whether it’s weekends filled with kid’s extracurricular activities or weeks set aside for travel and adventure.

Martin places great value on environmental concerns and appreciates investments vehicles that tilt toward innovation and doing what’s right for our planet. It’s no wonder Martin challenges the status quo of how things are done in his own practice. The benchmark against which he rests his decisions is simple, yet clear: will this make life easier and better for my clients?

Martin’s approach is very relationship-oriented and personal. He knows he has done his job well when he can free his clients up both in time and mental capacity so that they can enjoy sharing experiences with people who matter the most.

Speaking of, don’t be surprised if you get an invite to his home for classic Swedish meatballs (köttbullar), to hike, or to have a fika (Swedish tradition of taking a break over coffee and sweet treats with friends). Martin places a high degree of value in earning your trust and thrives on building relationships — perhaps this too, is a Swedish thing.
