Institutional Financial Services
Alden’s financial institution services and offerings are designed to meet the needs of the modern company.
Technology is providing new avenues for companies to gain investment and regulatory changes are making compliance and solid execution even more critical than ever before.
Alden has the capabilities to provide investment banking and broker dealer services to public companies as well as private ones. While we have expertise in several sectors including financials, real estate and energy, we can work companies in a variety of industries. We have worked from both a buy-side and sell-side perspective for our clients. Alden can provide a full range of investment banking services, including strategic and capital market transactions, equity trading and sales, equity research, and other consulting services.
Financial Institutions Group
While we work with companies in many industries, 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.
Alden’s investment banking team is growing and includes extensive transaction experience across a wide array of industries. We serve the needs of both privately-held and publicly-traded companies with tailored solutions in advisory, mergers and acquisitions, and capital raising services. Our core competencies include the regulatory, compliance, and legal side of investment banking services and transactions.
Alden’s product distribution team has significant experience in seperate accounts, mutual funds, private placements, and new issue structured notes and market-linked CDs. These offerings can meet a variety of needs advisors have for their clients including capital protection, uncorrelated returns, yield and asset class diversification. Structured Investments can provide an alternative, or complement, to traditional long-only investments. separate account strategies are available from niche managers with unique value propositions that in many cases can be tailored to the needs of the client.
Alden offers securities trading to both individual and institutional clients. We trade securities for individuals at our clearing firm Raymond James. This includes equities, ETFs, bonds, and options on several US exchanges. Clients may open accounts at our clearing firm and we have flexibility to custom design a portfolio or trading strategy to meet their goals and objectives. For institutional clients we offer direct market access through our clearing firm but can also refer business to one of our commission sharing agreement broker-dealer affiliates.
