Built by Advisors for Advisors
Carte first opened its doors in 2007 with one guiding vision: to support independent insurance and investment advisors by making it easier for them to grow their business. Founded by Kirk Purai, Carte was built to become a “true brokerage”, offering products independently based on financial planning. Kirk saw an industry where there really wasn't a space for true independent firms. A lot of them were owned by banks or by a parent company and all had their own products.Carte believes that if you're practicing financial planning, and you start focusing on the product first, then you can't really do planning, because the planning becomes the product. Carte provides best-in-class tools, technology, marketing, and compliance to reduce the administrative burden and provide a better advisor and client experience.
