Who We Are

HighTower is a national advisor-owned financial services company serving high-net-worth individuals and institutional clients from our headquarters in Chicago and corporate centers in New York and San Francisco as well as branch offices nationwide. Our advisors are experienced investment professionals with large and established advisory practices.

By reinventing how advisors on the front lines of wealth management can best serve and protect investors, HighTower has created a financial services business model in a ground-breaking class all its own.

Unlike integrated brokerage firms designed to build and distribute financial products – which drives profitability for the firm, but not necessarily returns for the clients – HighTower puts financial advice at the center of its business model.

Open Source and Employee-Owned

HighTower’s unique open source model means the entire financial services industry competes for our clients’ business. The HighTower tool chest includes resources, research and technology. And as an employee-owned firm, HighTower team members have an equity stake in the firm and a vested say in how the business evolves.

HighTower’s autonomy, combined with our access to Wall Street sophistication, truly sets us apart.

Our Advisors

Fully supported by an industry-leading infrastructure and never beholden to sales quotas, HighTower advisors have proven track records and the shared goal of putting clients first. We are extremely selective when considering new advisors. Each candidate undergoes a rigorous advisor-acceptance process.
