Snowden Lane Partners, an independent wealth advisory firm, has announced the launch of a new advisory team based in their New York City headquarters: the Oliveira, Silva & Mogro (OSM) Group, whose members join from Wells Fargo.

“The universe of wealth advisors has grown dramatically over the last few years, but as we took a look at the firms out there and analyzed which platforms offered the best home for our clients, Snowden Lane really stood out,” commented Oliveira.
