HilltopSecurities is a unique blend of financial strength, deep industry knowledge, and years of experience.

Our firm was born out of the fusion of two respected and successful firms with complementary business lines: First Southwest Company, a broker-dealer founded in 1946 and known for its municipal advisory practice, and Southwest Securities, Inc., a full-service broker-dealer since 1972.

As part of Hilltop Holdings, a well-capitalized and publicly traded parent company, we’re backed by a strong and diverse financial services enterprise. One that’s focused on moving our clients forward.

Nothing better represents this than our iconic buffalo, “Mo,” a symbol for our collective strength, unified force, and the unstoppable momentum of an advancing herd.
