We founded Redmount Capital Partners in December 2014 bringing together years of past institutional asset management, private equity investment, and business ownership experience, combined with our entrepreneurial, independent, and boutique vision. We believe our clients need advisers who understand what it takes to build businesses and have the first-hand experience in managing risks, growing wealth, and protecting the financial legacy.
Armen A. Grigorian
Founding Managing Partner
Armen works with a limited number of successful entrepreneurs and business families. Since 1994, he has had the privilege of working with clients as they transformed from business owners to business families and to business dynasties, along the way helping them evaluate and execute capital allocation and investment strategies and numerous key events such as selling or buying businesses, recapitalization, and business and estate transitions.
Establishing a valued relationship with clients is essential for Armen. He believes that quality advice requires an in-depth understanding of client priorities and strategy, combined with absolute discretion and access to institutional-class resources.
