Tailored to Meet Your Needs

What Works Best for You?

We offer the ability to leverage our entire platform, which includes a dedicated transition team, full-time compliance and operations as well as access to our best-in-class products/technology suites as well as integration with only the pieces you need. Advisors with their own RIA can leverage the broker-dealer solution only with the appropriate oversight that FINRA and the SEC require. If you’re considering the start of your own entity, the Alden team can provide guidance to help navigate the compliance and legal landscape. Lastly, we’re always open to new ways to work together and would be happy to discuss other opportunities.

Competitive Payouts

As advisors ourselves, we recognize the value you place on fair and competitive payouts—after all, it is your book of business. Our compensation model begins by looking at your business holistically.  We look at both your fee-based and brokerage business revenue and aim to provide the highest payout possible, while also providing the support necessary to grow your business.

Many broker-dealers will advertise a given percentage payout and then add “ticket charges” or additional costs throughout the year, which results in a considerably lower net payout.  At Alden, we like to be fully transparent from the onset, specifying exactly what your payout covers and does not cover.  The Alden payout model includes:

  • Technology
  • Operations Support
  • Marketing Support
  • Access to Unique Alternative Investments
  • Compliance
  • Insurance
  • 401k Plan

We Support Your Business

Let Us Support Your Business

We have created dozens of financial services entities and investment vehicles over a 20 year time period. We have been through many years of regulatory exams with FINRA, the SEC and other regulators. We find that many advisors prefer to let us handle the details and utilize all of our entities. The time, money and expertise required to create and maintain these entities is significant and most groups will save a large amount of both time and money by coming with us.

Operations Support

We are able to fully support all client requests and operations including order execution, on-boarding, money movement, investment execution, secure client communication, document retention and client house-holding. We facilitate investments in many different strategies and products for our advisors and their clients.

Compliance

One of the most challenging issues facing advisors today is the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape. We have an experienced, dedicated compliance staff to support your business. We are constantly updating our policies, procedures and materials to maintain compliance with rules and regulations and be in the best practice of the industry.

Marketing Support

Our compliance department interfaces closely with our advisors to approve marketing pieces, sales literature, presentations, and speaking engagements. We understand the importance of delivering a targeted marketing message to help close more business. We maintain and build a significant web and social media presence to help our advisors.

Research & Events

We produce high-quality Wall-Street grade investment research focusing on global macro, financial services and other sectors which we package and have available for weekly distribution. We also offer client events, seminars and other meetings to grow relationships and business.

Technology

We fully integrate 21st century technology to manage our business. This allows us to be more efficient and provide the security and peace of mind that our clients require.
