Bolton Global Capital announced this week that Samuel Nunez has joined the firm. Nunez has spent the last 23 years as a financial advisor with Merrill Lynch, compiling a client book of $125 million with annual revenues of $1 million. His clients are primarily located in Mexico and the US.
Nunez will be joining Bolton’s San Diego office, which was opened recently under the name TransAtlantic Investment Partners. James Jiao, a former Merrill Lynch complex manager and FA who left the firm last year after working 18 years, established this office. Jiao began his career in 1990 with Deutsche Bank in Germany as a portfolio manager and then transferred to Deutsche Morgan Grenfell in New York as a Private Bank Manager in 1994.
Over the last year, Bolton has recruited 8 teams from Merrill Lynch with client assets totaling approximately $1.5 billion. Typically, advisors who join Bolton operate under their own brand name using Bolton to provide compliance, back office, trading and technology support with client assets held by BNY Mellon-Pershing and other custodians.
