Elaina S. Spilove joined UBS in Princeton, N.J., from Graystone Consulting, a business of Morgan Stanley. Spilove is a senior institutional consultant and will be joining the UBS Institutional Consulting Group, where she is reporting to complex director John E. Geoghan in Red Bank N.J.
A 30-year veteran of the financial-services industry, Spilove had about $224 million in assets under management, according to Morgan Stanley. Her clients included public funds, endowments, foundations, various trade associations, pensions, profit-sharing plans and private clients, and she holds the designation of Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA) from the Investment Management Consultants Association (IMCA).
Also on Wednesday, New York-based Further Lane Wealth Management said former-UBS advisors Stuart Conley and Harvey Spira have joined the boutique firm as managing directors.
“The team’s quality, experience and expertise are impressive. Stuart and Harvey have significant investment management experience and strong skills as portfolio managers. Both have outstanding investment track records that we plan to leverage,” said Michael Araiz, CEO of Further Lane, in a press release.
Conley and Spira’s clients include professionals, business owners and corporate executives. The reps have worked on pre-sale and pre-IPO planning, exit strategies for business owners and executives, and retirement and legacy planning.
“I made the move to independence so that I can more effectively execute robust investment strategies on behalf of my clients. With complete open architecture, I have increased flexibility in the solutions I can provide my clients from a portfolio risk and return standpoint,” said Stuart Conley, in a press release.
Further Lane says it works with Dynasty Financial Partners, Fidelity Institutional Wealth Services and Pershing so that its advisors can offer clients a variety of products and services.
Conley has over 17 years of experience in the industry and, prior to joining UBS, was a director of investments at Oppenheimer and a financial advisor at Smith Barney.
