Christian Felix has joined Bolton Global Capital. Felix, formerly with the Merrill Lynch office in Coral Gables, Florida, manages client assets worth more than $120 million. This latest transition continues Bolton’s success this year in converting Miami based financial advisors from the major wirehouses to the independent business model. The advisors joining the firm’s Miami office in 2016 collectively manage over $1.2 billion in client assets.
Christian Felix was born in Ecuador and began his career in 2002 with Lloyds Bank in Ecuador and was later transferred to Miami. In 2006, he moved to Santander Private Bank International as Vice President where he remained until joining Merrill Lynch in 2010 as First Vice President in the firm’s international wealth management complex. He services high net worth clients primarily from Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia and Venezuela.
To bolster its footprint in international wealth management, Bolton recently hired Ricardo Morean, who has managed major complexes in Miami, New York and Latin America for Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo and RBC. The firm expects continued robust growth in its business in 2017.
