Alden Securities is a boutique financial services company with solutions for the modern investor. Technology, along with vastly increased investment alternatives, is changing the way both people and companies invest, manage assets, borrow money, and raise capital. Alden offers products and services to individuals and institutions that are focused on these opportunities. We utilize our technological and compliance expertise to bridge traditional securities products with the new ways of investing in the challenging and ever-evolving regulatory landscape. Alden Securities is 1 of 40 partners on the Raymond James Correspondent Clearing Firm channel.

Private Client Group

We’ve developed a robust financial platform that serves the current and evolving needs of advisors and their clients. The modern economy and changing market conditions provide opportunities for advisors to be able to offer both traditional solutions, as well as alternative and highly differentiated investment solutions, to adequately meet client goals and expectations. We have access to traditional equity and fixed income strategies, asset allocation portfolios, limited partnerships, private placements, hedge funds, and other alternatives that are increasingly part of a well-diversified client portfolio.

We own our entities, which have the registrations and approvals to bring almost any appropriate and suitable solution to our clients and the technology to keep business moving, organized and transparent to provide the best overall client experience. 2010 we’ve been developing a robust financial advisor platform in order to provide all the investment and service needs of their clients. We have access to leading technology solutions, traditional and proprietary investment products (including alternative strategies) as well as the registrations and approvals to bring almost any appropriate and suitable solution to our clients.



Our principles have managed alternative strategies since 2007. We have launched, operated and invested alternative funds successfully and developed valuable experience along the way.


We specialize in managing and investing in traditional and alternative strategies; our position as capital allocator allows us to leverage our network to find and negotiate favorable terms.


We seek managers and strategies who are generally differentiated by their smaller size and unique niche. These investments tend to have a quantifiable edge in the execution of their mandate

Capital Markets

Our principals and team members have many years of experience and a deep fundamental understanding of the characteristics and needs of financial institutions, in particular banks and credit unions. In a broker/dealer capacity, we provide research, capital offerings and security product sales. In an asset management capacity, we invest in and advise banks. We understand the needs banking companies have relating to their investments, documentation and compliance for regulators, as well as their internal due diligence and reporting processes.
