Rockefeller Capital Management has added a five-advisor team from Merrill Lynch.
Dallas-based advisors Neil Rubenstein, James Sandfort, Anna Gorman, Ryan Barcena and Michael Buss have all joined the Viking Global Investors-backed firm, according to their Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (Finra) BrokerCheck profiles. The five advisors operated under the RSA Group brand name while at Merrill.
The team manages around $703 million, according to a report from AdvisorHub, which first reported the breakaway.
Rubenstein and Sandfort co-lead the practice. Rubenstein had been at Merrill since 2001, while Sandfort joined the wirehouse in 2008 after spending six years at UBS.
