Founder | CEO

I am a fiduciary financial advisor that loves helping women and entrepreneurs dream big, navigate life changes, and find financial freedom. - Cady North, CFP®, MBA

Cady North is a Washington, DC and San Diego, CA- based financial advisor and investment manager. North specializes in financial planning, investment management, and retirement planning for women, especially those that wish to start businesses. Cady North is a fiduciary financial planner.

I’m the founder of North Financial — a boutique financial planning firm that specializes in helping women dream big and get their personal finances on track. A lot of my clients aren’t entrepreneurs yet, but they want to be, or at least know they don’t want to work the same desk job forever.

To give your business the best chance of success, your personal finances need to run smoothly. However, with your busy personal and professional life, you probably don’t have time to wade through mountains of news and information to figure out what to do about your budget, investing, or retirement planning. This is where I can help.

I come from a family of small business owners and learned to balance a business checkbook at the age of 13. I definitely have the entrepreneurship bug in me, but it’s taken me a while to get here. I spent more than a decade advising high-level executives of Fortune 500 companies while working in the financial services industry for companies such as Bloomberg and Financial Executives International.

My work has been featured in Bloomberg, Forbes, and the Washington post.  I enjoy public speaking and teaching people about financial literacy, and I'm a volunteer as a business coach in my spare time. If you’d like to have the financial freedom to start your own business one day, schedule a FREE consultation with me. I’d love to chat with you!
