Our Services

HighTower Texas offers a comprehensive and holistic approach to wealth management for individuals, families and foundations. We offer fiduciary trust capabilities, financial planning, wealth management, and family office and private investment services.


Wealth Management

Our wealth management team constructs portfolios designed for a variety of conditions and seeks to harvest returns across a combination of risk factors. In particular, we favor liquid asset classes that provide the potential for positive return that we believe are explainable by economic and behavioral factors.

Economic Environment: Inflationary

Asset Class: Real Assets

During periods of rising prices, real assets like commodities generally perform as their prices also rise.

Economic Environment: Growth

Asset Class: Stocks

Equity returns—a function of cash flow growth—have historically been strong during periods of economic expansion.

Economic Environment: Low-Growth

Asset Class: Credit

While also driven by growth, credit strategies tend to outperform during sustained periods of low growth.

Economic Environment: Deflationary

Asset Class: Fixed Income

During periods of falling interest rates, fixed interest rate securities like treasuries have generally performed well.


Asset Management

HighTower Texas’s asset management practice provides private investors and institutional fiduciaries with objective research and investment solutions to help them confidently meet investment goals. Our program is constructed using an Investment Policy Statement (IPS) that clearly defines the objectives and constraints under which we operate. We approach our duties under a fiduciary standard, and have only our clients’ best interests in mind when we invest their funds or provide planning recommendations.

Financial Planning

At HighTower Texas, we endeavor to deliver the full potential of financial markets. We understand that for many individuals, the execution of this goal can be complex. Every dollar that is saved or spent may have a meaningful impact on your long-term objectives. We can help you understand the implications of many financial decisions by guiding you through a disciplined and refined process. We start with your “big picture” and four primary financial planning components: investments, life insurance, retirement and estate planning.

Life Insurance

At HighTower Texas, we believe that life insurance is an important component of many financial plans. Navigating the complexities of these policies can be overwhelming, and as a result, life insurance often falls to the bottom of the priority list for many people. Our comprehensive insurance review attempts to give you a clearer sense of your financial well-being and helps determine a correct path forward for you and your family.
