HighTower expands with new advisor team in Florida


Financial services company HighTower has appointed a new advisor team, Masterson, Emma & Associates, based in Naples, Florida.  

"Masterson, Emma & Associates has built its client relationships on a foundation of integrity and commitment to what is best for the end investor," says Mike Papedis, HighTower’s Managing Director of Business Development. "We are very glad to welcome them to the HighTower partnership."

Mark Masterson and David Emma join as Managing Directors and Partners at HighTower. Previously, the team was at Merrill Lynch.

Masterson was recognised as a Barron’s Top 1000 Financial Advisor in 2010, and he earned multiple awards for top advisors during his more than 14 years at Merrill Lynch. He holds a degree in international trade from Auburn University.

Emma, in addition to his time at Merrill Lynch, has extensive experience as a real estate developer. He was also previously a professional hockey player for 10 years and was a member of the US Hockey Team in the 1992 Olympics.

"HighTower continues to attract a tremendous amount of seasoned talent from across the financial industry," says Papedis. "As we expand, our focus is advising high net worth clients without the structural conflicts endemic to large integrated financial institutions, while cultivating elite advisors who offer sophisticated investment solutions."
