HighTower adds advisory talent


HighTower, an adviser-owned financial services firm serving high net worth clients, has expanded its open-source platform with the addition of new advisory talent.

HighTower has expanded its international advisory talent by hiring Matthias Paul Kuhlmey, formerly of UBS. Kuhlmey brings extensive international expertise and nearly 20 years of experience serving ultra high net worth private clients who reside overseas. His expertise includes buying and selling of foreign ordinaries.

In addition, Kuhlmey brings expertise in borrowing against foreign ordinaries in their respective foreign currency, providing foreign currency exchange services, and executing forward contracts on foreign currencies to hedge against changes in currency values.

HighTower has broadened its domestic-client advisory talent with the addition of Christopher Towle Davis to the firm. Davis has more than a decade of wealth management experience, specialising in advising foundations, endowments, faith-based institutions, and nonprofit organisations. Previously, he was at UBS and practiced as a certified public accountant for municipalities, nonprofits, individuals and corporations.

In September, HighTower also expanded its global research expertise with the appointment of two economists to the firm, Martin Eichenbaum and Sergio Rebelo, who join as HighTower’s new chief economic advisers.

Eichenbaum is an internationally recognised scholar of macro and international economics. He is currently a Professor of Economics and co-director of the Center for International Economics and Development (CIED) at Northwestern University. He has been a senior adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago for the past 12 years, and is also an adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

Rebelo brings expertise in international finance and macroeconomics. He is co-director of CIED and a professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern. Rebelo also serves as a fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Center for Economic Policy Research, and has been a consultant to the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and other organisations.

Elliot S. Weissbluth, HighTower’s chief executive, says: "At HighTower, we’re defined by our advisers. Only advisors with an excellent fiduciary record and strong character are candidates for partnership. We are exceptionally glad to continue attracting top advisory talent with extensive and varied backgrounds that reflect our dedication to providing superior financial advice and high quality client services."
