"Our business, in essence of merchant banking, is not much different from the times Defoe Fournier & Cie. was founded in 1824 and Redmount was founded in 1994. Our team of investment, financial, data and administrative professionals located across eleven time zones still works with entrepreneurs, business owners and related to them companies and entities and we 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.
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.
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.
We founded Redmount with the purpose to invest capital and manage investments 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 manage U.S.-focused investments, including private equity and debt strategies of two European-based family offices, and later a handful of global financial groups.
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.
