Experience

That inspires confidence

Peter Murray

Senior Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

In a career that has spanned four decades and the worlds of Private Equity, corporate sales, institutional and personal investment management, Peter has come to serve a clientele – many who share his professional experiences.

A founding member of the MPD Park Ave Group, Peter is responsible for its overall strategy and business model. Daily, Peter continues to offer strategic recommendations based on the specific goals and investment objectives of successful private and institutional clients.

Prior to joining UBS Wealth Management in 2022, Peter spent the last 24 years at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. Peter spent more than 20 years in several business roles that inform his perspective – including that of President of Storer Communications Sales (then, the nation’s largest CBS affiliate and currently Comcast Cable). During his tenure, Peter participated in one of the early LBO’s (when Storer Broadcasting was acquired by KKR).

Given his background and family pedigree, it’s not surprising that Peter has found wealth management to be particularly fulfilling. One of his brothers owned a seat on the NYSE for 35 years while another worked at Salomon Brothers and First Boston in corporate bond and debt syndication. And the story continues – one of Peter’s nephews is the manager of corporate bonds for the Loews Corporation while another nephew was Co-Head of high-yield bonds at Credit Suisse.

Peter graduated from Georgetown University with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. He and his wife, Abigail, reside in Larchmont, New York where they raised a son and daughter. When time allows, Peter enjoys a good round of golf, a good book, traveling, and staying involved in alumni activities with his high school (Fordham Preparatory School). He also participates with a local cancer support group (Swim Across America).
