UBS Poaches Long-Time Merrill Lynch Ohio Advisor Team

Another big recruiting victory for the Swiss. Two Ohio advisors with nearly 50 years of tenure at Merrill Lynch have defected to UBS, putting their $260 million in AUM in play.

Tom Ulrich had been with Merrill Lynch for his entire 34-year career, getting his securities license at the firm back in 1977. Junior partner Nick Bryant started his career at Merrill in January 2001.


Between them they managed $260 million out of their Akron, Ohio office, taking in $1.6 million in annual production.


As usual, no motive for the move has been made public, but we'll be watching to see whether Merrill manages to replace them fast -- and if so, what kind of advisors they find.


In terms of scale, $260 million represents a healthy book in terms of scale by nearly anyone's standard. But for a book that big, Ulrich and Bryant's production seems a little low on the wirehouse scale.
