Thus, we are highly focused in our approach, and fully dedicated to ‘Advising with Cause’. At Arthya, we call it ‘The Wealth Philosophy’!”
Arthya Wealth and Investments was founded in 2020 by Gaurav Arora, an investment expert with over 15 years of experience, having earlier helped marquee wealth management firms build comprehensive investment platforms as their CIO.
The startup offers open-architecture-driven wealth management and investment advisory services spanning domestic and global investments and will soon also launch its PMS offerings.

Gaurav and his team have demonstrated a winning combination of sharp intellect, knowledge, and business acumen. With a very strong understanding of their clients’ needs and their in-depth expertise, Arthya has the potential to make a significant positive impact in this space.”
Arthya already has offices in Mumbai, Indore, and Nagpur, and will soon expand to other cities like NCR, Bengaluru, Pune, and Ahmedabad.
