We’re in the business of protecting dreams.

This is Aspida

Founded in 2021 by a collective vision of industry professionals with over 200 years of combined experience, Aspida has the financial strength, the security, and the capability to be a trusted partner in its clients’ financial strategy. Our A- (Excellent) rating, our backing by Ares Management Corporation, with over $330 billion in AUM, and our cutting-edge client-centered platform position us to provide the service, quality, and commitment needed to make us a successful partner in the RIA space.

Technology Integrations

We’ve built a ground-breaking technology ecosystem that allows partners, advisors, and clients to conduct business quickly and easily. Leveraging select third-party integrations and combining those with our own in-house technology has allowed us to issue business transparently and incredibly fast, which is great for both you and your client. And, post-issue, our support and service technology solutions allow both us and the advisor to provide the white glove service clients deserve.
