NW Capital Management Subsidiaries Reach $2 Billion in Assets Under Management (AUM)

Northwest Federal investment program doubles total AUM in six years

Herndon, Va. — NW Capital Management (NWCM), a wholly owned subsidiary of Northwest Federal Credit Union, today announced that its subsidiaries, Northwest Financial Advisors (NWFA) and Northwest Financial Group (NWFG), reached $2 billion in total Assets Under Management (AUM), a major financial milestone for the Northern Virginia wealth management business and credit union service organization (CUSO).

Total AUM reflects the total value of brokerage, advisory and 401(k) business. But to NWFA President and CEO Kevin Fisher, the achievement is not just about the dollar figure.

“To achieve this milestone is a testament to the holistic approach our advisors take to financial planning and the long-term relationships they have developed with our clients. Our advisors provide lifelong advice and support, taking into consideration an individual’s entire financial picture. I thank them for their hard work, professionalism and dedication to our clients who entrust their precious savings with us,” said Fisher.

The growth in AUM can largely be attributed to the strength of the advisory model which requires advisors to work in the best interest of their clients and to take an objective, independent approach to providing investment advice. NWFA also offers clients a wide array of investment vehicles, resources and tools that allow clients to make appropriate investment choices. Clients have recognized the benefits of working with NWFA and responded with their loyalty. It was also made possible through several strategic initiatives, in particular, hiring top talent to support our growth plan. Favorable market conditions resulting in an increase in the value of assets has also been a driving factor for the rise in AUM.

Karen Benedict, NWFA’s senior VP and program manager said, “To double our total AUM in just six years is an incredible achievement. I’m very proud of our advisors and their outreach efforts — especially in providing educational opportunities to credit union members and external organizations — that have helped fuel the growth of our business.”

NWFA plans for continued growth include recruiting and developing talent, enhancing technology, collaborating with its credit union parent and marketing its services to nonmembers in the community.
