Barclays Wealth said it hired Don Milich and Clifford Wang, both formerly of Morgan Stanley, to work in the firm’s Atlanta office.
Barclays Wealth has about 250 advisors (or investment representatives) in the United States and Latin America, and a total of 1,680 FAs worldwide. Total assets under management were about $240 billion as of December 31, 2009.
Houston reports to Mitch Cox, head of Barclays Wealth-Americas, and global research and investments for all of Barclays Wealth. (Cox is also a Merrill Lynch veteran.)
The two recent hires in Atlanta will report to Linda Eydt, regional manager, who was hired in January from UBS.
“We are pleased to have Don and Clifford join our Atlanta office,” said Cox in a statement. “With over 35 combined years of experience in the Southeast, they have a deep understanding of the regional business.”
Barclays tapped a former-JPMorgan advisor, Gary Krieger last month to serve as a director and investment representative in its Palm Beach, Fla., office.
