Alden is a financial services company with securities and asset management solutions for the economy of today.
We are an independent firm with our own full-service broker/dealer and registered investment adviser entities. Technology, along with vastly increased investment alternatives, are changing the way both people and companies invest, manage assets, borrow money, and raise capital. Alden offers products and services for individuals and institutions that are designed around these opportunities. We utilize our team’s many decades of experience and expertise to bridge traditional securities products with the new ways of investing in the challenging and ever-evolving regulatory landscape.
We are a partner-owned firm. Few independent asset management companies also have their own broker/dealer, which gives us a large degree of control and flexibility around our businesses. In addition, our independence from large brokerage companies allows us to utilize a wide range of products not available at other firms to help our clients achieve their financial goals.
Alden offers a large and diverse menu of services including individual account management, institutional research, investment banking, private placement offerings, wholesaling services, retirement plans, equity trading, fixed income trading, and options trading, among other broker/dealer and RIA capabilities. In addition, we have close working relationships with several specialized broker/dealer and RIA peers who provide highly value-added services to our clients.
