“We are committed to strategically growing our team of relationship-focused wealth management professionals in South Florida who can draw on a wide spectrum of expertise and skills to help clients reach their long-term goals,” said Linda Krouner, regional leader of Fiduciary Trust’s Coral Gables office. “Edgardo has a solid track record of forging strong relationships with high-net-worth individuals and families, and working closely with them to craft strategies for protecting and growing their wealth—and utilizing their wealth to make a positive impact on their families and communities.”

Mr. Gonzalez joins Fiduciary Trust from U.S. Trust in Fort Lauderdale, where he was a portfolio manager in the global wealth and investment management division. Mr. Gonzalez previously worked as a wealth management advisor for TIAA-CREF in Miami and New York. Earlier in his career, he spent more than eight years with JP Morgan, most recently as a portfolio manager in the firm’s private bank in New York.

“Fiduciary Trust has earned a reputation in South Florida—and across the country—for fostering strong multi-generational relationships, and developing integrated wealth and investment management strategies based on an understanding of each client’s unique needs,” said Mr. Gonzalez. “I look forward to working with my Fiduciary Trust colleagues to build fee- and tax-efficient portfolios that align with specific client situations.”
