Our History

Our History Strategy and Principles

ARTA is a leading Ukrainian investment company, which has been actively operating in the local financial market since 2002.

ARTA’s history began with the establishment of ARTA Investment Partners in 2002. Initially the Company was positioning itself as an investment boutique aimed at providing its clients with highly professional advisory expertise in debt advisory and corporate finance.

After establishing ARTA Securities LLC in 2003, the Company entered the Ukrainian securities market as one of the first and most active key players. Also, in 2003 ARTA closed its first significant transaction- the debut UAH 30 M bond issue for our long-standing client SJSC Chornomornaftogaz.

The highlight of 2005 was the creation of ARTA Asset Management LLC which launched a business relatively new for the Company – asset management for both corporate and individual clients. In January 2005, a Corporate Non-governmental Pension Fund “Chornomornaftogaz” was established. Due to ARTA’s efficient management of the Fund’s assets, its performance was one of the most profitable in the local market.

As a result of the Company’s ever increasing range of activities, the next logical step was creation of the ARTA Group of Companies which is currently comprised of three legal entities: ARTA Investment Partners LLC, ARTA Securities LLC and ARTA Asset Management LLC. These companies lead three core business areas: corporate finance, brokerage and asset management. Since its inception, ARTA has attracted approx USD 1.5 billion to the local market.

Currently, ARTA is entering into a consequential stage of its development – it’s been evolving into an investment bank which delivers unique expertise gained in world financial markets and adapted to local market needs.

We believe that combining the best international practices with a deep understanding of the local economic, political and cultural environment is a minimum prerequisite to best serve the needs and requirements of our clients. Market and sector knowledge, a professional approach, efficiency and special attention to customers' needs are the key facets of our strategic positioning.
