Our History

Our roots trace back to 1908, when a small office with a handful of financial advisors opened in downtown St. Paul, MN. Over time, North Star has grown into an independent establishment comprised of over 300 individuals with offices across 22 states. The level of service and expertise North Star advisors provide their clients is a direct result of North Star’s 100+ years of working on behalf of the best interests of our clients.

In diversifying the products and services available to our financial advisors and their clients, North Star added an Insurance Brokerage division in 1986, a Long-Term Care division in 1996, an Employee Benefits division in 1998, and a Tax Preparation division in 2002. In 1983, we began providing comprehensive investment advisory services under our independent registered investment advisor, Marathon Advisors, Inc. In 2007, we aligned with CRI Securities, LLC and Securian Financial Services, Inc. for strategic purposes. In expanding the products and services offered, North Star advisors have been able to take a more diversified and holistic approach to providing recommendations for their clients.
