When you consider Arete, you’re pursuing an investment approach powered by these principles: the Arete Approach.

We define integrity as doing what we say we’re going to do. It’s that simple. Just as you have the fiduciary responsibility to act in the best interest of your clients, we take the same responsibility very seriously when partnering with your firm. “Say” to us really means “do” – meaning we keep both you and your clients at the center of all we do.

In addition to traditional wealth management, alternative investment strategies are a significant area of growth for Arete. This includes our work with over 30 alternative product firms representing over 50 sectors across sectors such as asset finance, energy, managed funds, operating companies and real estate. You want the unique deals that get you noticed. 

We’re bold in our pursuit of opportunities where others in our industry tend to dismiss anything not in the ‘conventional box.’ Our commitment to this boldness isn’t reckless; rather, our unique offerings have been vetted with the highest level of intellectual rigor.

Arete offers a comprehensive operational and regulatory infrastructure that allows you the freedom to focus on giving exceptional financial advice. Our customized service and support model means you have access to everything – and everyone – you need to reach new levels of growth. We’re big enough to get you where you need to be but small enough to care. We’re with you, in sync with the day-to-day needs of your firm, all the while ensuring your long-term growth strategy is realized. It’s what we do.
