David N. Sterling

Senior Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

I am a Senior Vice President and Financial Advisor with UBS Wealth Management, and I have over 20 years of work experience as a financial advisor. I take a holistic approach to relationship management with a focus on investment portfolio construction, inter-generational wealth planning, and trust and estate planning. The complexities of the current investment environment require an acute understanding of the needs and goals of my clients. I take into account factors such as spending, current and future income, and philanthropic intent. The way that I construct portfolios is based on a combination of the input that I receive from my clients, UBS research, third-party research, and my view of what the best options are for my clients in the current market environment. I also consider the tax implications of the actions which are taken by my clients, and whether they want to align their investments with their sense of purpose and mission. ESG, sustainable, and impact investments are a focus area at UBS, and I construct broadly diversified portfolios which are in alignment with overall investment objectives, and the goal of having a positive impact on the world.

Areas of Focus

I offer the full range of products and services which are provided by the wealth management, commercial banking, and investment banking divisions.  I have facilitated several large high yield loans and several commercial real estate loans.  I also facilitated the IPO for a NY based supermarket chain.  Some of the more specialized services that I offer to businesses include business valuation, workplace wellness, stock options plans, and directed share programs. 

For philanthropic entities I work with family foundations, corporate foundations, and non-profits.  I believe that it is important to establish the values of the organization and to align the investments and vision around those core values.  I look at issues including engaging the founder’s children, governance, and whether the entity wants to address an immediate need or the root cause of an issue.  UBS has extensive resources for helping philanthropic entities to add resources, build capacity, and to campaign for change.  We provide training and insight which incudes consultations, family meeting workshops, podcasts, market-based events, and long-term advice and consultations.
