Philosophy

1.1

Time and time again, the word ‘trust’ is misused and abused in the financial services industry.

The HighTower philosophy takes the true concept of ‘trust’ and marries it with the principle known as ‘the fiduciary standard.’

HighTower is a Fiduciary.

“A fiduciary is an individual in whom another has placed the utmost trust and confidence to manage and protect property or money. The relationship wherein one person has an obligation to act for another’s benefit.”

Investors Deserve Better

Confidence in the financial industry is at an all-time low.

By doing what we do best – delivering adept and trustworthy financial advice without the myriad conflicts so common throughout the financial services industry – HighTower is revolutionizing what investors can expect from their financial advisor.

The relationship between the HighTower advisor and the HighTower client is analogous to the one between doctor and patient or lawyer and client.

As the financial industry continues to wrestle with tarnished reputations and accusations, HighTower is a beacon for straight talk and honest advice.

CEO Elliot Weissbluth explains the difference between brokers and fiduciaries – and why it matters to investors’ financial health.
