Rosemont Announces Minority Investment in Northside Capital Management

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rosemont, a private investor in employee-owned asset and wealth management firms, today announced a minority investment in Northside Capital Management, LLC, an outsourced investment manager for ultra-high net worth families. Headquartered in Hood River, Oregon, Northside had in excess of $5.2 billion in assets under management and advisement at the end of 2023. 

Rosemont’s investment in Northside is a recapitalization intended to support the company’s stability and commitment to independence. As a minority investor, Rosemont will provide guidance on all aspects of the business, as well as enhanced governance.

“We carefully considered our choice of partner before selecting Rosemont,” said Jim DeWolfe, Managing Member and President of Northside. “In the end, we valued Rosemont’s industry expertise, its experience collaborating with firms like ours, and its permanent capital and minority orientation. Having Rosemont’s support ensures that our clients will continue to receive the same quality of advice and level of service indefinitely into the future.”

“Northside provides a distinctive offering to its client families,” said Brad Mook, Managing Director at Rosemont. “We appreciate Northside’s institutional-caliber investment and portfolio management capabilities along with the customization and tailored services their clients receive. We see increasing demand for these types of services from independent, conflict-free firms, and we are pleased to partner with Jim and his colleagues to sustain and enhance their efforts.”

This is the fourth permanent capital investment by Rosemont, which made twenty-six similar investments through private equity funds before converting to permanent capital investing six years ago.
