Experience

Makes all the difference

Timothy Connolly

Managing Director–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

Tim’s wealth management philosophy is influenced and driven by noted economist, Benjamin Graham:

"The best way to measure your investing success is not by whether you’re beating the market but by whether you’ve put in place a financial plan and a behavioral discipline that are likely to get you where you want to go."

Experience to guide you forward
Tim began his financial services career in 1982 at UBS-predecessor firm PaineWebber. He later joined Credit Suisse in 2008 and returned to UBS in 2015. Motivated by his parents’ experience with an unsuccessful business plan, Tim learned the value of financial planning early in his life. In fact, his own financial planning efforts helped him to manage the challenges of his child’s illness. Through his investment expertise and industry knowledge, Tim is passionate about guiding his client and their families to a strong financial future.

Education and professional achievements

  • UBS ultra-high-net-worth designation
  • Series 7 and 63 securities licenses
  • B.S., finance and economics, Babson College


Outside of UBS
