Highworth Research was founded in 2007 in London to provide market intelligence on the global wealth management industry.
In 2009 Highworth was a pioneer in publishing the online International Wealth Management Industry Database, which provided detailed profiles, frequently updated, on several thousand family offices and private banks globally. Clients included top tier private banks and asset managers principally in Europe and the U.S.
From 2011 to early 2018 Highworth was contracted to provide data to S&P Global on family offices and private banks outside the USA. From 2019 Highworth Research resumed independent online publication of data on single family offices globally.
