Ina and Team to Establish Nashville Office for NewEdge
STAMFORD, Conn., June 2, 2023 — NewEdge Wealth, LLC, a registered investment adviser specializing in servicing the needs of ultra high net worth families, family offices, and institutional clients, announced today that Richard Ina has joined the firm from UBS and will establish a Nashville-area office. His previous two associates, Alison Ina and Paige Muirhead, will also join NewEdge Wealth.
“Richard and his team bring a well-established and hard-earned reputation of servicing their clients’ unique needs, and we are thrilled to have them within the NewEdge Wealth network,” said Rob Sechan, CEO and Co-Founder of NewEdge Wealth. “He wanted a partner to provide more freedom in choosing solutions and services for his client’s wealth management needs, and NewEdge provides that flexibility.”
Ina and his team will be the first to establish a NewEdge office in the Nashville area. Ina has more than three decades of financial services experience and focuses on wealth planning and money management for high net worth individuals, executives, business owners, and entrepreneurs.
“Our primary focus is to seek ways to improve our clients’ investment performance and taxation on their investments. We needed a platform with a broader scope of in-house wealth strategy, enhanced performance reporting, and a sophisticated online experience,” Ina said. “We are excited about joining NewEdge Wealth as the firm can provide the support we need to deliver the kind of services our clients expect from their wealth management team.”
Ina began his career with Deloitte and Touche in Cleveland, where he focused on auditing pension and endowment plans. He then moved to Smith Barney (now Morgan Stanley Wealth Management), where he held several roles including Senior Vice President of Wealth Management. Ina joined UBS in 2010 as a Managing Director for Wealth Management. He has been named to Forbes’ Best-in-State Wealth Advisors for the past four consecutive years.*
