Our History

Cadaret Grant is built on a foundation of independence. 

We are a home for financial professionals who want to affiliate with one of the top independent broker-dealers in the industry. Founded in 1985, Cadaret Grant services around 750 financial professionals in branch offices nationwide. The firm was founded by Art Grant and Mac Cadaret, two businessmen who wanted to create an independent broker-dealer that respected and encouraged the independence that financial professionals seek. We seek financial professionals who have an entrepreneurial spirit and interest in serving their clients on their own terms.
