UBS Wealth Management Americas, a unit of UBS AG, recently hired a team of high-producing financial advisors from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.
The team, Charles Stoner and his wife, Eileen Stoner, joined UBS' Charlotte office, along with their son, Chuck Stoner, Jr., and daughter-in-law, Christina Stoner, who are client service associates.
The advisors together generated $3.9 million in fees and commissions and managed $300 million in client assets, according to a person familiar with their book of business. They report to Craig Cmiel, complex director, and Dan McLaughlin, assistant branch manager.
Before joining UBS, Charles Stoner worked at Morgan Stanley for nearly 18 years and remained at the joint venture with Citigroup Inc.'s legacy Smith Barney brokerage for two years, according to Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records. Eileen Stoner spent a combined 13 years at the two firms, regulatory records show.
A Morgan Stanley spokeswoman confirmed the team had left the firm, but declined further comment.
