    A former Army officer, Brian’s military experience transitioned well into his wealth management career. He spent his early years in the industry building a business that consisted of a large number of UHNW private clients and middle-market institutional clients. Today, with more than 20 years advising UHNW clients, he and his UBS Private Wealth Management team focus solely on serving these successful individuals and families.

    “The resources we have available at UBS Private Wealth Management are, in my opinion, the best in the industry. What differentiates us is our ability to deliver what clients want and need.”

    Brian’s depth of knowledge is a result of his significant experience in advising on a wide range of complex financial, estate and business succession situations. Brian develops and implements customized plans for cash flow, risk mitigation and portfolio management strategies. As part of his holistic approach, he works closely with clients’ attorneys and accountants to help ensure their financial plans are tax-efficient and “married” to their wealth transfer and estate plans. What’s more, as a Certified Exit Planning Advisor® (CEPA®), Brian brings a strategic understanding of business optimization and sale to his clients’ entrepreneurial goals.

    Paul’s choice to pursue a career in wealth management should have come as no surprise, given his interest in the stock market at a young age and his being the son of a trust and estate attorney. Having spent his entire professional life in the industry has enabled him to not only do something he loves, but more importantly, positively impact the lives of the individuals and families that work with him.

    “As an advisor working with families of significant means, depth of knowledge is key, but so is working within a firm that supports you and your clients with best-in-class resources and capabilities. UBS Private Wealth Management provides exactly that.”

    Today, with more than 17 years of experience behind him, Paul focuses on helping a select group of ultra-high net worth families and family offices address complex wealth concerns. He understands that wealth management advice does not start and stop with investments—it looks beyond the portfolio to address a wide range of priorities that matter most to his clients.

          Planning is our beacon

          We believe that even the most formidable wealth goals can best be achieved through a well-coordinated, well-implemented financial plan. Our UBS Wealth Way process enables us to guide you and your family forward. We’ll identify your priorities and needs, and then design a plan for today and for the goals throughout your lifetime.

          Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy.
          Our process begins with questions and a discussion that help us focus on what’s really important to you. Then, we can help you organize your financial life into three key strategies: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own.


          UBS Wealth Way is an approach incorporating Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy. strategies that UBS Financial Services Inc. and our Financial Advisors can use to assist clients in exploring and pursuing their wealth management needs and goals over different time frames. This approach is not a promise or guarantee that wealth, or any financial results, can or will be achieved. All investments involve the risk of loss, including the risk of loss of the entire investment.
