You’ve worked hard to build a very valuable business. Your firm shouldn’t hold you back.

Get the independence, flexible investment solutions, and collaborative culture you’ve been searching for.

Picture a broker dealer that can give you:

Industry-leading payouts with a multi-custodial platform for advisors.

Answers to your operational and compliance questions in minutes and hours, not weeks and months.

Tailored support rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

Greater flexibility of investment solutions for your clients with a wide product diversity.

Arkadios was formed by advisors for advisors, so we know exactly what you’re missing.

Built for advisors by advisors

After serving as an independent advisor for more than 20 years, our founder, David Millican, launched Arkadios. The reason was simple: he experienced first-hand how broker dealers were changing the game and making decisions based on corporate goals instead of the needs of advisors like you and your clients.

We believe that advisors are at their best when they aren’t just told what not to do, but are empowered to reach even further.

“Black Stone Capital found an ideal partner in Arkadios with CEO David Millican, who built his own business through recruiting and acquisitions. We are going to continue to grow our firm, leveraging Arkadios’ experience and support, while putting our client’s financial well-being first.”

“Arkadios checked all the boxes, advisor-owned, advisor-focused, smaller, flexible, willing to hear what we have to say and help us find solutions that are in our clients’ best interest.”
