Company description

Arden Partners plc is a United Kingdom-based stockbroker, which provides a range of financial services to corporate and institutional clients. The Company provides broking services to, and advises on a range of corporate finance transactions for, medium and small cap companies in the United Kingdom markets. The Company operates in two segments: Equities Division and Corporate Finance Division. The Core business areas are Corporate Finance and Corporate Broking, the team specializes in advising medium and small cap companies across a broad range of industry sectors.

Employee ownership description

In common with many small stockbroking firms, Arden is substantially employee-owned as a result of direct investment by founding employees and the subsequent operation of unapproved option schemes for the benefit of directors and employees. An EBT owns 9.5%, of which 2.2% is reserved for the exercise of vested and exercise-able options held by directors and 7.3% for employees generally. A further 30% or more of the company is held directly by employees, though some of these may be retired founding partners.
