Daniel J. Shannahan

Vice President–Wealth Management


With over 35 years as a Financial Advisor, Dan’s focus is primarily on managing discretionary investment portfolios at UBS.  As a Portfolio Manager, Dan looks to help clients pursue their objectives by managing assets on a discretionary basis through defined models and personalized strategies.  These strategies can incorporate a variety of investment vehicles, both short term and long term.  Discretionary portfolio management eliminated the needs of clients to be involved in the day-to-day investment decisions. Instead, Dan reallocates and adjusts portfolio holdings as necessary in response to changes in market conditions while maintaining regular communication with clients to address their changing needs.

Dan starts with a Strategic Wealth Assessment for each client to in order to provide a highly customized experience.  Don does this in partnership with client’s attorneys and tax advisors to help address all aspects of the planning process.  Additionally, Dan seeks to educate the next generation to assist with wealth transfers.
