Excellence in execution

The Arctic Group is a leading, independent provider of financial services which opened its doors for business operations in August 2007.

Arctic is founded on an entrepreneurial spirit, which permeates the culture and drive of Arctic’s employees, which today totals about 220 people. Since the startup in 2007 we have expanded our international footprint with offices in Stockholm, New York, Rio de Janeiro and Houston, but always with a strong Norwegian heritage at the core. We aim to bring value to clients through superior competence and to be a preferred discussion partner for our clients.
