Merrill Lynch departures fuel RBC hiring surge
By Andrew Welsch
Of 37 advisors RBC hired since Aug. 1, two dozen came from Merrill Lynch, according to the regional BD’s hiring announcements. Those former Merrill advisors, some of whom are industry veterans, managed $2.9 billion, RBC said.
In October, a former Merrill Lynch team that managed $405 million joined RBC in Reno, Nevada. The group is comprised of advisors Paul Comcowich, David Iubelt, Clifford Iubelt, and Robin Brunson. Senior Registered Client Associate Kimberlie Jones also moved with the team.
Comcowich and Iubelt have more than two decades of industry experience, each. Brunson has been in the business for eight years.
