NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fiduciary Trust Company International, a global wealth manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of Franklin Templeton Investments, today announced that Noah Uzal has joined the firm as a wealth director in its New York office.

“We provide a broad range of services for high-net-worth individuals and families, as well as institutions, as no two clients have the same goals, needs or investment preferences,” said Paulina Mejia, regional managing director, trust counsel, and head of Fiduciary Trust Company International’s New York office. “Noah will help us strengthen relationships with the clients we serve in the Greater New York region, so they can experience the full long-term benefit of our holistic wealth and investment management offering.”

Mr. Uzal was most recently an assistant vice president and business development specialist at Alex.Brown, a division of Raymond James, in New York. He previously worked for nine years at Deutsche Bank in New York, where he facilitated equity and fixed income transactions for institutional clients. Mr. Uzal completed his tenure at Deutsche Bank as assistant vice president in asset and wealth management covering institutional clients. He began his career as an analyst in the capital raising group at Channel Capital Group in New York.

“The firm-wide culture at Fiduciary Trust emphasizes the importance of a deep understanding of each client’s unique situation and circumstances,” said Mr. Uzal. “In-depth relationships are crucial for helping clients create individualized portfolios to protect and grow their wealth over the long term, and I am glad to join an organization that shares my dedication to clients.”

Mr. Uzal graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
