Since our founding as a trust company in 1993, HT|TC Wealth Partners has evolved into an independent, fee-based wealth management firm that aims to provide clients with personalized, insightful guidance, robust investment knowledge and customized wealth management solutions.
Our name reflects our historical connection to the Trust Company of Illinois, which continues to provide fiduciary oversight of our trust, estate, and retirement plans, as well as our partnership with Hightower Advisors. Through our relationship with Hightower, our firm continues our legacy of serving individuals, families and business owners as they journey through life’s many transitions.
As a client-focused firm, we leverage our access to innovative resources, while simultaneously providing a deeply personalized approach extending beyond traditional investments. Backed by our competitive investment platform, our experienced advisors act as trusted counselors for clients’ businesses and families, adeptly steering the course of their financial futures.
Our trust services are provided by Trust Company of Illinois, an independent trust company chartered by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Trust Company of Illinois offers a full array of services to ensure that wealth is transferred in a manner consistent with clients’ instructions. These services include trust administration, guardianship, and estate planning. Our Retirement Planning Services are also offered through the Trust Company of Illinois.
Hightower was founded in 2008 and we’ve come a long way over the years. Our Chicago-based corporate office supports over 120 wealth advisory firms across 34 states — helping with operations, finance and more so advisors can maximize time with clients. We also collaborate on business consulting and marketing; we provide training options and a host of value-added services.
We work hard and reward hard work. We want our employees to be all-in; we also want our employees to prove out our concept of “well-th”— that is, overall wellness derived from financial success balanced with family time, vacation time, hobby time — whatever completes a picture of a “happy life.”
Our Hightower HIGHFlex work model includes the ability to balance remote/office work, the option to work a month from anywhere at all, and a generous vacation policy that is about getting the work done and enjoying life, not banking hours.
We’re proud of our awards, including making Inc. Magazine’s list of “Best-Led Companies,” but we’re even more proud of the work we do for our advisory teams each and every day.
