    Kevin Butler joined UBS Wealth Management in 2021 after spending 16 years at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management where he served as a Senior Vice President and Resident Director.  His move to UBS allows he and his team to solely focus on helping clients achieve their financial goals and provide sound advice to their families.

    Kevin received his Bachelors and Masters degrees from The University of Michigan and continues his passion for education with various credentials.  Kevin is a Certified Private Wealth Advisor®, Certified Investment Management Analyst®, Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor® and holds the primary role of serving as PMP Portfolio Manager for clients.  He is currently working on his Chartered Retirement Planning Specialist® and Certified Exit Planner® designations for continued dedication in serving clients.

His clients can count on him to be a compassionate listener skilled in balancing empathy with disciplined investment advice and counsel, all the while bringing in the full resources of UBS.

      My path to financial advisory is unique in the industry. Before being called back to my hometown of Detroit, MI, I was fortunate to have had a very successful career at a storied Global Macro hedge fund on the East Coast.  During my time there, I helped navigate over $1 billion in assets through twelve market corrections and three recessions.  That experience equipped me with a distinct perspective that allows me to effectively address the issues that impact my clients. 

      I relentlessly seek knowledge to stay equipped to address the issues that impact my clients. I have been distinguished with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation which requires me to always act in a fiduciary capacity for my clients. The CFA credential is the most respected and recognized investment designation in the world. 

      My practice focuses on working closely with ultra-affluent individuals and families, helping them streamline the complexities and capitalize on the opportunities of substantial wealth. I limit the size of my practice to 50 families to ensure exceptional service is delivered. You will always be connected to your money when working with me.

      Whether we‘re discussing risk, performance or an investment strategy, our conversations will always be straightforward so you can clearly understand our approach and the reasoning behind our recommendations.

      In addition to building deep relationships with my clients, I enjoy investing time with my wife, Jill, and our two children, Sloane and Gavin, at our home in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. I am an active member of the Detroit Boat Club Crew, Detroit Athletic Club and CFA Society of Detroit.
