About Us

Arden Advisory is a privately-owned wealth and investment management firm serving high-net-worth individuals, families, and institutions. In order to meet a wide range of investment objectives for our clients, the firm focuses on sound asset allocation strategies along with a focused manager/project selection within alternative asset classes.


Asset Allocation

We aim to achieve stable long-term asset allocation goals along with a willingness to accept relatively higher levels of short-term volatility in investment values for the purpose of higher long-term investment returns. A significant portion of the portfolio is invested in alternative investments. 

Manager/Project Selection

Manager/project due diligence covers alternative asset classes and are sourced through our extensive network and reach within the investment community, as well as the broader investment bank capital introduction network.  Investment team resources are used predominantly to seek external investment managers and co-investment opportunities that are intended to outperform the applicable asset class benchmark.

Portfolio Management Solutions

 We offer consulting services to Family Offices on internal processes related to portfolio management, manager selection and performance reporting. We are investment professionals that are uniquely qualified to vet your needs, match appropriate solutions and work through implementation.
