Understanding Comes from experience

At UBS, we offer our clients access to some of the world’s most powerful financial resources. But the most important resources of all are the ones we bring to the table whenever we discuss your needs – listening and understanding. They are the first steps in the disciplined, ongoing process of wealth management.

We’ve long realized that taking a team approach to helping our clients creates the best results. That’s why we work with an entire ensemble of dedicated professionals, from experienced trust and estate professionals to experts in retirement, insurance and investments to make sense out of all the moving parts of your finances. But, beyond this extended UBS team, we also look to partner with your team of personal advisors—those significant individuals who do or will impact your financial world.

Experience to guide you forward
The longer Roy remains in this business, the more he realizes the important responsibility he has to his clients, their overall well-being and the trust they place in the entire Gutierrez team. While most of his professional life experiences have been in wealth management (a Barron's article inspired him to enter the profession in 1981; he later joined UBS in 1987), to Roy, his work is about much more than finances. His primary role is lead manager of client relationships. Roy works with his team to ensure they ask the right questions, understand clients' goals and create an appropriate plan to pursue those goals.

Experience to guide you forward
Not only does David enjoy helping clients build and manage wealth across multiple generations of their families, he helps ensure their values are preserved across generations as well. He joined UBS in 2007 and has always made people the focus of his work– their unique stories, their values and helping them achieve what's most important to them. Now a father of two daughters, David has gained a greater appreciation for family values and the important priorities he has for himself and his family.

David focuses on financial plan development, including gathering and processing information, discussing alternative courses of action, and plan implementation. His background in engineering and interest in behavioral finance help him bridge the gap between thinking logically and the emotion and psychology that underlie much of the financial planning process.

Hillary joined UBS in 1998 and worked in a number of areas within the firm, including  Operations and Branch Office Administration. In her current role as a Senior Client Service Associate, her focus is different—it's much more about building relationships and working directly with clients and their concerns. To Hillary, this side of the business and getting to know clients personally is one of the most satisfying aspects of her job.
