Broker-dealer SecureVest Financial Group has teamed up with software firm AIM-TO to launch a mini-prime brokerage firm, which opened its doors on March 1.

New Jersey-based Alpha PB will target small- to mid-sized private investment funds, family offices and separately managed accounts.
“There is a need for our clients to have access to the best risk and portfolio management tools,” August Cellitti, CEO of SecureVest, said.
