Backed by Defoe Fournier & Cie., a venerable private and merchant banking firm founded in 1824, our leadership re-purchases from Lehman Brothers the business sold in 1998. The separated business was merged with Redmount Financial and named Defoe Redmount.
As the firm's activities grew, in 1998 the business was sold to Lehman Brothers, with its team staying on board to grow the business, now as part of a $300 billion firm.
Redmount Financial was founded immediately after the sale of Credit Sovereign to Lehman Brothers to invest capital and manage investment portfolios for the selling partners of Credit Sovereign.
Our firm was founded as Credit Sovereign in 1994, to manage U.S. investments, including private equity and debt strategies of two E.U.-based family offices, and later a handful of global financial institutions.
Fortitude. Unity. 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 during the 1st to 3rd centuries AD, including where Redmount vineyards, farms, and aggregate mines are currently located. To this date, coins minted by the Theban Legion are found in and around Redmount.
