Barclays Wealth said Friday that it recently hired six advisors, including one from Merrill Lynch and one from BofA-U.S. Trust in New York, Boston, Dallas and Miami; the combined assets under management for these six FAs is $3.3 billion, while their total yearly sales and commissions is $15 million.
“The addition of these talented advisors, with an average of 19 years of experience each, underscores our commitment to growing the business by attracting a select number of high performing investment representatives,” said Mitch Cox, head of Barclays Wealth Americas, and head of research and investments globally for the firm.
Joining Barclays in Boston from Merrill Lynch Private Banking is Glen Darby, who began work at Merrill in 1983. He has specialized in serving ultra-high-net-worth clients. Matthew Grady also has been hired in Boston. He was formerly with Old North Advisors.
In New York, Jerrid Douglas joins Barclays Wealth from Citi Private Bank; he has also worked at Bank of America and Columbia Management Group. Andrew Leventhal was hired in Manhattan from Credit Suisse Private Banking, which he joined in 2001.
