Michael Poots

Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

I began my career in financial services when I joined PaineWebber in 1999 (which was later acquired by UBS).  My role is to understand your needs and to help you grow and protect your wealth to fulfill your life goals. Careful financial planning is a key element of this process and has helped me guide clients through some of the most turbulent market conditions in history

Many of my clients are individuals who have built their wealth through hard work and being committed to their careers or businesses. I believe I earn their confidence and loyalty by demonstrating these same attributes in managing their wealth.

Originally from Northern Ireland I have lived for the past 17 years in Naples, Florida with my wife Lynne. Away from UBS I enjoy cycling, swimming and foreign travel.
