NorthStar Financial & Retirement Planning headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina is an independent retirement planning and investment firm. Our mission is to provide efficient and secure investment strategies to both individual and institutional investors.

Our clients can remain 100% confident that any investment recommended to them will be based on how we determine it will meet their financial objectives best.

As Investment Advisor Representatives, we hold a fiduciary responsibility to our clients. This is important when seeking counsel for your financial well-being.
