Ilya Zlotnik, Partner, Wealth Adviser, Vivaldi Capital Management met with Julie Cooling, CEO, RIA Channel about their asset management, research and wealth businesses.

Vivaldi started with a focus on research primarily in the alternative space but eventually expanded their research services into all asset classes.  Unlike many firms that began in the traditional asset space, While they wanted niche exposure to alternatives, they also wanted exposure to equities, fixed income, and help with their estate planning and tax strategy.   Vivaldi’s alternative investment research led them into more comprehensive wealth management services based on the holistic needs of their clients.
