UBS Loses $2 Billion in Assets

AdvisorHub is reporting that UBS Wealth Management USA on Friday lost a big producer to First Republic Bank in Los Angeles.

According to AdvisorHub, the broker moved alone to First Republic’s private wealth management arm, and had generated some $6 million in annual revenue from $2 billion in client assets.

This is part of a continuing departure of brokers from UBS, despite the fact that the firm withdrew from the Protocol for Broker Recruiting, the industry agreement that allows brokers to contact their former clients when moving among member firms.
