The addition of Tyler Potts and J. Addison McAraw, announced on the partnership’s website last week, brings Northstar’s level of assets under management to nearly $2 billion. In addition, Northstar says it will open a new office in the Old Saybrook area of Connecticut, where the newly recruited team lives and works.
“The addition of this team to the Northstar family further demonstrates the firm’s commitment to being the independent financial services firm of choice for elite advisors who call Connecticut home,” the partnership said in an online announcement.
“Northstar is honored to welcome Tyler and J as Partners to our firm,” said Robert Laraia and Brandon Marinelli, founders of West Hartford, Conn.-based Northstar, in a statement. “We share their commitment to longevity, sustainability and scale for our clients and our business as a whole.”
Northstar currently includes 22 partners and eight staff members who serve small-business owners, senior executives, experienced professionals, retirees and families with financial planning and related advice.
