What We Do

HighTower Bellevue has operated since 1985 with a simple commitment – to better serve our clients.  
HighTower Bellevue is an independent-minded boutique practice with institutional strength. Our company was founded by Larry (Lars) Knudsen as Financial Security Group in 1985. Through the years, this initial company has changed its name and ownership structure, but never lost its passion for independence, fiduciary standards and representing the best interests of our clients.  
We provide a wealth stewardship process that strives to create meaningful solutions that align your vision, values and wealth to help you achieve your goals.


Clients First

Our goal is to maintain long-term relationships with our clients as we believe comprehensive financial planning is an ongoing process and not a one-time event.  Our clients’ needs and goals come first.

What is a Fiduciary?

Brokers vs. Fiduciaries


published on Mar 16, 2012
We are fiduciaries, and must adhere to a Fiduciary Standard – the highest standard in the financial services industry. We have a legal obligation not to subordinate clients’ interests to our own. We act in your best interest and must set aside personal motives and minimize or avoid conflicts of interest, in favor of pursuing the best solution to your unique situation. Included in the fiduciary standard are the duties of loyalty and care – for our clients’ only.  
We are fiduciaries. Legally bound to put our clients’ interests first.
