JENKINTOWN, PA – Alden Investment Group, a leading independent firm with a full-service broker/dealer and registered investment adviser, announced today that it will be joined by Kings Management Company, a leading boutique financial firm based in Bellmawr, New Jersey.
Bill Small founded Kings Management Company in 1977, and his daughter, Kathie Schroeder, later joined in 1993. The firm provides comprehensive financial planning and investment services to clients that are considered family. Small and Schroeder work with new and long-term clients, advising four generations of families in many cases.
Kings Management Company’s decision to join Alden Investment Group came after evaluating dozens of other broker-dealers. The decision was based on the Alden Investment Group’s quality of management and staff, knowledge level and fit within the organization.
We are thankful they chose us as their broker/dealer affiliate, as well as partnered with our investment advisor, said John Mulqueen, Alden’s Chief Operating Officer. We believe Kings and Alden have a good philosophical and strategic alignment, and we look forward to supporting Bill and Kathie’s efforts to help Kings’ clients achieve their investment goals.
By joining a like-minded organization with a breadth of capabilities, Kings Management Company will be able to expand client offerings and ensure continuity of service.
