Highmore Announces New Partner:  Jon David Willingham

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Highmore Group Advisors, a leading global alternative asset management firm overseeing in excess of $1.2 billion, is pleased to announce that Jon David Willingham joined as a Partner in July, and now leads Highmore’s international expansion from its London office. He has served as a Senior Advisor to Highmore prior to joining the firm as a Partner.

“This couldn’t be a more natural, synergistic addition for Highmore,” said Managing Partner Brian Altenburg. “Jon David’s longstanding relationships with not only our firm, but also major clients, together with his complementary skill sets and resources, significantly enhance Highmore’s capabilities and connectivity.”

At Highmore, Jon David will focus on the firm’s international businesses and strategic growth globally. He will work closely with institutions, family offices, and ultra-high net worth individuals, advising on current and potential investments, portfolio company strategy, and political and impact concerns.

“The market is awash with commoditized investment products and unremarkable research. Investors come to Highmore for genuine partnership, rigorous analysis, and differentiated solutions. I’m delighted to join such a talented, values-aligned team,” Willingham noted.

Previously, Jon David was Managing Director of the Office of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. From Highmore, Jon David continues to direct the family’s venture capital and private equity involvements.

Jon David has a particularly deep background in sustainable investment and growing disruptive operating businesses, having advised many of the world’s leading private and institutional sustainability, cleantech, and renewable energy infrastructure investors in relation to financings totaling in excess of $2 billion and structured funds in excess of $2.2 billion.

Jon David serves on or advises the boards of directors and senior management of a number of firms and companies, including Starwood Energy Group, ColorZen, Ostara, Vionx Energy, and others.

Jon David earned an MPA from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and a BA in Economics and Political Science with minors in International Studies and Business Administration from Rhodes College.


Highmore is a global alternative asset management firm, investing in both public and private market investments, across asset classes and investment structures.

Highmore was founded by a team with a long-shared history at firms such as Man Group, FrontPoint Partners, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citigroup and Oppenheimer & Co., where the team built investment businesses, developed differentiated alternative investment strategies, managed funds, and oversaw assets in excess of $25 billion. Senior partners also have extensive experience working within high profile ultra high net worth families to grow complex operating businesses, commercialize new technologies, and direct meaningful political and philanthropic efforts.

This breadth of experience enables Highmore to engage holistically with clients, not simply to safeguard and grow their assets, but to genuinely help clients who wish to make a difference: whether expanding a successful family business, starting a new venture, impacting their community, or simply securing peace of mind for future generations.

Highmore currently manages in excess of $1.2 billion in assets.
