Bart Bates

First Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

I began my career as a municipal bond trader and over the past 34 years I have helped clients manage their wealth throughout good times and bad. I joined UBS in 2007 after 13 years at RBC - Dain Rauscher and at William R. Hough & Co.. With my clients, I emphasize asset allocation and total portfolio management with a focus on retirement income planning; I also help them with education funding, structures for charitable giving and estate planning. I am FINRA registered and hold Series 7, 23, 54, 63 and 65 securities licenses as well as licenses for life, long-term care and health insurance and variable annuities. My bachelor’s degree in business administration is from the University of South Florida. I also completed the 3 year Securities Industry Institute program at the Wharton School of Business. My wife and I live with our two daughters in St. Petersburg, FL.
