from the Latin, “one who asks questions”
In the ancient Roman Republic, quaestors were early financial investigators, entrusted with taking care of the public treasury and sent out to the provinces to collect taxes and perform audits. We practice what the Roman Stoics called premeditatio malorum, or the premeditation of evils — imagining in advance what might go wrong, and planning for it.
At Quaestor Advisors, that means anticipating multiple potential problems for every one that might plausibly arise. Our direct and special servicing capabilities are redundant by design, allowing us to handle any contingency.
What is quite unlooked for is more crushing in its effect, and unexpectedness adds to the weight of a disaster. This is a reason for ensuring that nothing ever takes us by surprise. We should project our thoughts ahead of us at every turn and have in mind every possible eventuality instead of only the usual course of events.

Arena’s mandate is global, unconstrained by asset class and industry. Based in New York, Arena was formed in partnership with The Westaim Corporation, a publicly traded Canadian holding company focused on the financial services industry.
