Towle Leaves Greycourt For Chicago’s HighTower

Aug 22 2011 | 7:10am ET

Former Greycourt advisor Margaret M. Towle, based in Minneapolis and Seattle, has joined Chicago-based financial services company HighTower as a partner and managing director.

Towle had been with Pittsburgh-based multi-family office Greycourt since 2008, serving as head of investment research.

HighTower’s Matthias Kuhlmey (partner and managing director) says Towle brings with her “a client base that includes more than $1 billion of wealthy family and institutional assets under management.”
Prior to joining Greycourt, Towle served as chief investment officer of Northern Trust Global Advisors.

Three-year-old HighTower is 25% owned by its advisors. Headquartered in Chicago, the firm maintains corporate centers in New York and San Francisco and offices around the country.
