Aligned Interest

What You See is What You Get

Our goal is to stay seamlessly aligned with our clients’ goals and keep transparency – from our fee structures to the security of our clients’ assets – a top priority.

HighTower is here to help investors maximize and mold their financial portfolios and give independent advice on investment strategies.

We’re available to answer whatever questions clients have about our process: no matter how small, no matter how specific.


Fee Structure

HighTower generates revenue through financial advice and investment counsel. We do not engage in proprietary trading and unlike many large, integrated brokerage firms and banks, our balance sheets are not leveraged to create profits from high risk arbitrage and dubious strategies.

Predominately fee-based, HighTower engagements are:

  • Reflective of market-driven pricing
  • Transparent and easy to understand

HighTower advisors are equity owners, which mean they are active participants in the overall strategy and success of the company.  As a result, business decisions are made with the client’s interests in mind.


Security in Uncertain Times: Why Multi-Custodial Matters

In uncertain times, investors and advisors need a trusted place to keep their assets.  One of the foundations of the HighTower solution is the use of strong third-party custodians.

We are not bound by in-house or legacy custodial relationships – limitations with which most large, integrated brokerage firms have to contend every day. HighTower’s partnerships with some of the most respected, reliable, and secure financial custodial firms in the marketplace are made based on your best interests.


The ‘Open Source’ Benefit

HighTower’s ‘open source’ structure enables every HighTower advisor to employ the top resources available, including research, financial planning capabilities and independent custodians and trading platforms.

With the ability to seamlessly do what is in our clients’ best interest without restriction, HighTower has the flexibility to adapt as market conditions change.
