HighTower, Founder & CEO

HighTower 145x145

Mr. Weissbluth is co-founder and CEO of HighTower, the first national partnership of independent financial advisors in the U.S. Headquartered in Chicago, HighTower has 24 offices across the U.S. and approximately $20 billion in assets under management.

As the driving force behind HighTower’s innovative open source business model, Mr. Weissbluth has disrupted and forever shifted the balance of power in the financial services industry away from big Wall Street firms and banks to advisors and their clients. As a result of Mr. Weissbluth’s vision, HighTower advisors are free to serve the best interests of their clients without the conflicts of interest found at most large banks and investment houses. Instead, these institutions now compete for the business of HighTower clients. Before joining the financial services industry, he was a practicing attorney in Chicago.

Mr. Weissbluth is a Trustee and Co-Chair of the Investment Committee of the Interlochen Center for Performing Arts in Michigan, a Trustee of the Harris Theater in Chicago, and a member of the Anshe Emet Synagogue Investment Committee in Chicago. He is also a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) and The Economic Club of Chicago.

Mr. Weissbluth’s commentary and analysis are often featured in the national media, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Fortune. He also appears frequently on CNBC.
