David Michael Rose Sr., CRPC


Financial Advisor

David (Doc) Rose says he came upon his financial services career by accident. But, if you believe that for everything there's a reason, you would know that David's choices and the impact he's made on the lives and financial well-being of his clients are hardly accidents. All roads in David's life from his father's early social work influences to his education in history and economics to each career touch point along the way have led him to his current position as a Director and Portfolio Manager at UBS.

A true American success story, David has a passion for learning that, combined with relentless hard work, paid off. He attended Fordham University at night, then went to graduate school and earned a Master's degree in management and leadership at East Stroudsburg University, while raising a family. Although his entire career has been spent at Wall Street firms, before working in the branch system, David worked for many years on various trading desks. This experience provided him with insights into portfolio construction and market understanding that have benefitted his clients tremendously over the years. With David's help and understanding, his clients gained confidence to stay the course and ride out difficult markets while building strong and loyal bonds with him.

Not surprising, David's life outside of work is equally rich and rewarding. After 10 years as a catechist in his parish, he can honestly say that he received as much, if not more, from his service to those parishioners then he gave. David and his wife of 26 years, Denise, are currently on the Pre-Cana team at their church and he is an active member of the Knights of Columbus.

David and Denise live in Flanders, NJ and have three grown children, David (25), Julianne (24) and Andrew (19). They love their family life, being outdoors and spending time at the beach.
