Linda M. Gelson

Senior Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

Linda began her career in one of the equity market's most tumultuous years on record- and over the past three decades has helped her clients manage their wealth throughout good times and bad.  She joined UBS in 2011 after 10 years at Smith Barney and prior tenures at Prudential Securities and Merrill Lynch.

The cornerstone of her service commitment is to offer clients distinctive, caring, and personalized attention, in addition to timely communications and availability.  Each client relationship begins with a careful consideration of her clients' long-term financial objectives and life aspirations.  Linda seeks to grow her client relationships by continuously striving to transcend their expectations as well as steadily helping them to instill value and leave a legacy for the people that matter the most.

Linda is FINRA-registered and holds Series 7, 63, 65 securities licenses as well as licenses for life insurance and variable annuities.   In 2018, Linda received her Portfolio Manager designation and, in addition to her title of Senior Vice President, she is a member of the Director's Counsel at UBS.
