We protect your accounts with comprehensive insurance coverage, adherence to FINRA and SEC policy, and industry-leading cybersecurity.


Our suite of fully-integrated technology lets your advisor spend less time on paperwork and more time with you.


We support your advisor's fiduciary obligation with features that keep more of your cash invested, reduce your tax burden, and help remove bias from the investment selection process.

What is Altruist?

As a modern financial custodian, we are responsible for safekeeping client assets, settling trades, and – just like Pershing, Charles Schwab, and Fidelity – adhering to a strict set of policy and regulatory requirements.
With Altruist, you can open and fund your investment accounts in minutes, track your investment progress and view your portfolio’s holdings, and download statements, tax documents, and other essential information in as little as a few clicks. It’s easy, simple, and intuitive.


“What I appreciate about the user interface is how clean it is... No distractions, no anxiety, so that I can stay focused on my goal right till the very end. That's what I love about the Altruist platform.”
