The story of Aardvark.

Our careers began in advertising and design. They were built in small business, nonprofit, and private equity as we gained experience and expertise in finance and operations.

We love engaging with interesting people who are creating inspiring work. So, we built a financial strategy studio to support their efforts and maximize their rewards.

It’s deeply fulfilling.

Our clients are authentic to their purpose, creative in their expression, and ambitious in their pursuit—making it easy to love what we do.

The team behind Aardvark.
