HighTower recently announced that Gryphon Financial Partners, with $600 million in assets, has become the third member of its HighTower Network, which helps breakaway advisors transition to independence.
“The HighTower Network supports teams like Gryphon as independent financial advisors, while reducing the operating risks associated with launching and growing their businesses,” said Elliot Weissbluth, HighTower’s CEO, in a statement. “Network teams gain access to a wide array of services that they will need anyway, from technology, to compliance, to operations, as well as strategic input from other top-performing HighTower teams. Our service platform and experience fuel their growth.”
Columbus, Ohio-based Gryphon Financial Partners oversees $600 million in assets for approximately 100 households. The team transitions to HighTower from the Guth Group at Morgan Stanley. Principal Joel Guth has extensive experience working with successful business owners, specializing in pre-liquidity planning, deal execution and post-deal wealth management.
Joining him at Gryphon Financial Partners are co-principal Cathy Cory as well as team members Angelo Manzo, CFA; Judy Roseberry, CRPC; Maria Kardassilaris; Jean Sturges; and Kathy Payne.
