Please join us in welcoming Matt Zenz to the Hill Investment Group team as our new Chief Investment Officer (CIO). Matt, based in New York City, has an MBA from Harvard Business School. He previously managed the US small- and mid-cap strategies for Dimensional Fund Advisors and worked as a product specialist at Stone Ridge Asset Management. We are excited for him to bring his institutional-level investing expertise to our clients. His role includes leading investment strategy, portfolio management, and trading at Hill Investment Group. Matt will chair the Investment Policy Committee, lead and conduct manager due diligence, and relentlessly improve the efficiency of the trading operations at the firm, all to benefit our clients. Zenz will also directly engage with our current and prospective clients through portfolio optimization, analysis, and face-to-face discussions.
“Hill is committed to an evidence-based, long-term investment approach that I completely agree with,” says Zenz. “Matt Hall has assembled a high quality, driven team across the organization, poised to continuously improve the client experience. That is the type of energetic culture I want to be a part of.”
The St. Louis Business Journal recently featured HIG’s partnership with Focus Financial Partners. We are honored to be chosen by Focus as one of the top 70 firms in the country to join their network and are even more excited about the possibilities that Focus will be able to bring to our clients.

Here at Hill Investment Group, we’ve intentionally set up our infrastructure to offer seamless client care from Houston, St. Louis, or anywhere else we may roam. As such, if we didn’t tell you, you’d probably never know that our Chief Operating Officer Nell Swanson Schiffer has relocated from Houston to St. Louis, at least for a while.
By happy coincidence, her husband was recently accepted into the Internal Medicine Residency program at Washington University in St. Louis. (Congrats, Walter!) With Nell already an integral member of our HIG team, it was even easier for the couple to pick up roots and head to St. Louis.
Never one to miss an opportunity, Nell mentioned the move when she was speaking with the St. Louis Business Journal about our related, 2019 Best Places to Work announcement. In the same issue, she shared her journey with Business Journal readers. It’s an adventure that has taken her from wearing a flame-retardant jumpsuit as a Houston-based petroleum engineer, to her role as HIG’s COO.

The common denominator between Nell’s past and current careers? A passion for pursuing ingenious and disruptive best practices across all of life’s pursuits.
We welcome Nell to our St. Louis office, where we’re confident she’ll continue to be valued firm-wide.
