James Ugobono

First Vice President–Wealth Management

I began my career in the investment industry one year after graduating from Saint Joseph's University in 1998. When I moved to Puerto Rico, I worked for my family business for one year and a half and I had a good learning experience of the private business.

I started working in Doral Securities from August 1999 until December 2001 then I moved to Santander Securities. In 2010, I joined UBS after I came to a decision that what I was doing for my clients was not enough and I needed a firm with a broad array of products and services to better serve them. I realized that they deserve the best I can offer to help them meet their financial goals. With the services and products available at UBS, I am better equipped to help them evaluate each investment opportunity and make sure we are on a path that’s tailored for their unique needs.

I am FINRA-registered and hold Series 7 and 66 securities licenses as well as life, accident, health and variable annuities insurance licenses. I received Bachelor’s Degrees in both Finance and in Marketing from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA in 1998.
