Highmount is an independent wealth management firm focused on the financial needs of high-net-worth individuals and families. With global investment and trust expertise, the firm has extensive capabilities to address a full range of wealth issues that clients face domestically and internationally.
Highmount was founded in 2002 by Steven Hoch and Maarten van Hengel — old friends and trusted colleagues. They were at the forefront of the multifamily office concept and were among the pioneers to integrate macro-family advice, family governance, and next-generation education, an essential component of the long-term success of families of wealth.
Today, with an experienced team and offices in the United States and Europe, the firm continues to expand its global capabilities, international list of clients, and innovative solutions. Highmount currently has offices in New York, Boston, Amsterdam, and Zurich.
