Private. Independent. Entrepreneurial.
"We founded our firm by bringing together years of past institutional asset management, private equity investment, and business ownership experience, combined with our entrepreneurial and independent vision. We believe our clients need advisers who understand and have first-hand experienced what it takes to build businesses, manage risks, grow wealth, and protect financial legacy."

Armen A. Grigorian
Co-Founder and Managing Partner
Armen leverages over 25 years of asset management and private equity experience to co-lead Redmount Capital as a 1-call financial counselor and investment advisor to successful entrepreneurs, smaller family offices, trusts, and foundations. Started his career in 1993 at Tucker Federal Bank (now RBC Bank) after obtaining a BA in Business Administration. In 1994, formed Credit Sovereign, as it was retained to manage private equity strategies for a Netherlands-based investment fund and a $200-million Atlanta-based family office. In 1998 sold Credit Sovereign to Lehman Brothers, continuing to lead and grow the business, now part of a $300 billion organization. In 2002, led a team to repurchase the business from Lehman Brothers, with the backing of Defoe Fournier Cie., a venerable private banking firm founded in 1824, separating it as Defoe Redmount. In total, Defoe Redmount has invested over $3 billion in middle-market companies, from its own capital and on behalf of Deutsche Bank, Lehman Brothers, CIBC Oppenheimer, and Defoe Fournier. In 2010, parallel with Defoe Redmount, established Redmount Financial on the private client services platform of BofA Merrill Lynch, which later separated and merged with Curtis Hollowell's corporate retirement/pension plan business, becoming Redmount Capital Partners, an independent Registered Investment Advisory firm.
