What do you value most in a wealth manager?

As advisors to successful entrepreneurs and families, we appreciate that our clients want and need more than investment advice. More than performance. They want stewardship—advisors who understand them and care about their financial well-being—long term.

At The Phillips Hayes Group, we view wealth management as addressing all aspects of your financial life. From exiting your business to planning your legacy, our advice reflects who you are, what you’ve accomplished and your intention for the next generation. We are a UBS Private Wealth Management team with a 27-year history of working seamlessly together. Harnessing the resources of one of the world’s largest wealth management firms, we’re dedicated to delivering you the very best UBS has to offer. With the responsiveness and service you deserve, we help you plan for and pursue the goals that matter to your family and your future.

    “I’ve found that markets tend to repeat themselves. Having decades of experience is valuable in guiding investors who don’t have that insight, but need it.”
    – Alex Phillips

    A founding partner of The Phillips Hayes Group, Alex began his career in investment banking directly out of college. He first discovered private wealth management at Harvard Business School and realized that was the career he wanted to pursue. With 27 years of private wealth experience behind him, Alex joined UBS as a Private Wealth Advisor in 2008. He and his team work primarily with successful families who are planning or experiencing significant liquidity events. Collaborating with partners across the firm, including advanced planning, family and philanthropy advisory, and investment banking, Alex has assisted clients not only in monetizing their businesses, but also in creating long-term financial plans to address the full scope of their wealth management needs. He is passionate about building client trust and instilling confidence in the advice and service he delivers.

      “ Understanding our clients is central to our practice. Each one of our clients is unique, and we want to have a complete picture of who they are: their priorities, goals, fears and motivations. This is integral to how we advise our clients and deliver our wealth management services.”
      – Jordan Hayes

      During Jordan’s college years, he was intrigued by Wall Street and the financial markets.  Private wealth management called him early, and throughout his 20-year career, he has focused exclusively on advising ultra high net worth investors and addressing the complex needs of their families and businesses.

      Today, he brings that experience to his UBS Private Wealth Management clients, striving to make a significant impact on their lives. He and his team, The Phillips Hayes Group, take a holistic approach and provide comprehensive, consultative investment planning and wealth management services to their clients. A strong sense of stewardship is a key feature of the team’s DNA.
