RBC Wealth Management said the Core Group has moved to its Private Wealth offices in Boston and Southern California from Morgan Stanley. The team includes Boston-based advisors Alexander Sugar, CFP, who has 30 years of industry experience; and Alex Davis, 17 years of experience.
Advisors coming on board in Century City and Newport Beach, California, are Graham O’Kelly, CFA, who has 15 years of industry experience; Grant DeVaul, an advisor with 22 years of experience; and Taylor Biehn, a registered rep with four years of experience.
According to RBC Wealth, Sugar and DeVaul helped the industry pioneer “the focus on family wealth management after co-founding the Core Group at Bear Stearns in 1995.”
“What attracted us to RBC was the strength and stability of the firm, along with direct access to necessary resources that are valuable to the families that we serve,” said Sugar, in a statement. “In addition, we wanted a firm that was client-focused and committed to our vision of family wealth management.”
