Changing the Industry
In the years leading up to Stonebridge’s formation, our founders – Robert Kincade, Dennis Hippen, and Heidi Hukriede – identified a need for personalized management and tailored solutions within the financial service industry.
Together, Robert, Heidi, and Dennis developed the firm’s founding vision: to deliver high-quality, customized investment services by forming strong, personalized client relationships. Over 25 years later, this vision still governs how Stonebridge caters to its clients’ individual needs through its solutions and services, influencing a long-lasting change in the industry.
Tradition and Strength
Built in the 1880’s by James J. Hill, Minnesota’s renowned landmark – the Stone Arch Bridge – inspired our firm’s name. Because of its unique, technologically advanced architecture, this former railroad bridge crossing quickly became one of the four structures of its kind in the world.
Surviving over two centuries’ worth of tests against time and nature, this historical bridge has become a symbol of strength and grace by which others are measured. We strive for a like reputation worthy of our trademark, as we combine innovation and tradition to build on our history of investment success.
Where We Are Today
When Stonebridge first opened its doors, it didn’t have the assets under management it has today. In fact, the founders began from the very bottom with no assets at all. Firms with similar histories rarely attain the level of growth Stonebridge has, let alone survive for more than 2-3 years.
What differentiates Stonebridge is our founding vision: to deliver high-quality, customized investment services by forming strong, personalized client relationships. For over 25 years, clients have and continue to place their trust in Stonebridge.
