“Arta unlocks the access, personalization, and connections that, until now, were available only to the ultra-wealthy through their family offices,” the company said in a statement. “Family offices typically employ teams of professionals who use sophisticated financial strategies and tap into exclusive investment opportunities. Through technology, Arta aims to bring these advantages to millions more people globally.”
“Everyone should have a chance to take charge of their financial life in the same way that wealthier and financially savvier people do,” said Caesar Sengupta, CEO and Co-Founder of Arta Finance. “So we’re doing this the way we know best – by breaking down barriers to sophisticated finance with technology.”
