Fiduciary Trust International, a global wealth manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of Franklin Templeton, announces that Robert W. Murphy has joined the firm as a wealth director. He will be based in the firm’s Boca Raton office.
“Robert is well-versed in fostering meaningful, long-term relationships with ultra-high-net-worth and high-net-worth individuals and families, as well as foundations and endowments, in South Florida,” said Todd Stoller, regional managing director and senior portfolio manager for Fiduciary Trust International’s Boca Raton office. “The ongoing growth of our business in the greater Palm Beach area is a testament to how we help clients and their advisors here make sense of their complex financial lives. We look forward to working with Robert to provide holistic wealth and investment management to more clients across this region.”
Murphy was most recently partner and head of business development and compliance at Applied Investments, LLC in West Palm Beach, FL.
In this position, he was responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with qualified eligible purchaser clients, including high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, family offices, and institutions.
Murphy was previously managing director of investor relations and business development at a boutique asset management firm in West Palm Beach. Earlier in his career, he was a practicing tax attorney in West Palm Beach.
“South Florida is truly a global financial hub, and it is common for families, businesses, and nonprofits here to have assets and operations in multiple countries,” said Murphy. “Fiduciary Trust International’s teams in South Florida possess a broad spectrum of expertise in how to increase and protect clients’ global wealth, and ensure their trust, estate, legacy, and philanthropic planning goals are realized.”
Murphy earned his juris doctor from Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, and his master’s degree in International Relations from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
