Arch was founded on the belief that the next generation of investors are increasingly investing in alternative assets, such as cryptocurrencies and private equity, and are let down by traditional lenders and financial institutions who do not meet their needs. Our founders, Dhruv and Himanshu, seized the opportunity to address this gap and deliver a comprehensive lending and credit solution where the individual is considered in their entirety. We have since worked with early users to expand our product offerings across asset verticals and financial solutions, with the aim of making Arch the single financial destination for alternative asset holders.
