Custody & Clearing
To eliminate potential conflicts between advice and custody arrangements, HighTower does not act as custodian for your assets. Instead, we have created enhanced relationships with major independent custodians. With your investments in the hands of a third party answerable only to you, you are always only a computer click or a phone call away from your money.

Because being open means offering choices, we have selected several of the world’s best-known and most trusted financial service companies to provide clearing and custody services to our clients. Among them, Fidelity Investments, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. and JPMorgan Clearing Corp. (formerly the respected clearing arm of BearStearns).
