"Our business, in essence of traditional merchant banking, is not much different from the times Redmount was founded in 1994 or Defoe Fournier & Cie. was founded in 1824. Our investment, financial, data and administrative professionals currently located across eleven time zones still steward money, invest capital, manage risks, marshal insights and connect opportunities. Some things will never change."
Partners' Council. Defoe Redmount. December 31, 2016.
We entered 2020 with a stronger-than-ever team of investment, financial, data, and administrative professionals present in five locations across eleven time zones.
To strengthen our property private equity strategies, in partnership with industry executives we launched Epic Hospitality, asset/property manager focused on mid-scale, economy, extended and senior stay properties.
Our global infrastructure investment strategy is propelled considerably as we, in partnership with an international institutional investor, acquired a portfolio of debt and equity positions of various infrastructure projects.
To expand our private equity strategies, in partnership with the InterFinance Group of Croatia and a New York-based family office we launched Adriatic Capital Partners d.o.o. in Zagreb, Croatia, focused on the investment opportunities in newly-admitted E.U. countries.
After fourteen years of cooperation and gradual integration, Defoe Redmount and Defoe Fournier & Cie. became one, with presence in Newport Beach, New York City, and Vienna.
Our head office moved to Newport Beach, housed at 23 Corporate Plaza.
Our investment advisory team became registered investment advisor and broker/dealer representative on the platform of BofA Merrill Lynch, with offices in Midtown Manhattan and Newport Beach.
We centralized our research & analysis specialists to better serve the needs of our investment teams. The group started with four professionals, growing to 15 by 2019.
Our head office moved to New York City, housed at 48 Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan.
Backed by Defoe Fournier & Cie., a venerable private and merchant banking firm founded in 1824, we separated our business back from Lehman Brothers, merging it with Redmount and naming it Defoe Redmount.
Redmount was established to manage assets and invest capital after the sale of Credit Sovereign.
As our activities grew, in May of 1998 Credit Sovereign became part of Lehman Brothers, with our team staying on board to grow the business, now as part of a $300 billion firm.
Our firm was founded in 1994 as Credit Sovereign, to serve as a U.S. middle market private equity, private debt and property investment correspondent for a handful of European-based family offices and global financial groups, including Nomura, Deutsche Bank and Daiwa.
Our Logo Stands for Fortitude, Unity and Trust.
Our logo is the shield pattern of the legendary Roman Theban Legion, a symbol of fortitude, unity, and trust in the areas defended and stewarded by the Theban Legion, including where Redmount vineyards, farms, and aggregate mines are currently located. To this date, the coins minted by the Theban Legion are found in and around Redmount.
