RBC’s growth spurt draws 4 new hires

RBC’s recruiting roll continues with the hiring of three new advisor teams, as well as a new head of equity and institutional middle markets.

Chris Coburn returned to RBC in late September after a four-year stint at Baird, according to FINRA BrokerCheck. The Denver, Colorado-based advisor manages approximately $150 million in client assets, according to RBC.

A spokeswoman at Baird did not respond to a request for comment on his departure.

Michael Foody, a 20-year veteran of Wells Fargo where he managed approximately $120 million in client assets, joined RBC in late September, according to FINRA BrokerCheck.

Another longtime Wells Advisor, Grady Buchan, who spent 10 years with Wells after spending a similar length of time at A.G. Edwards, joined RBC in early October in Syracuse, according to FINRA BrokerCheck and RBC. Buchan who managed $195 million in client assets at Wells Fargo, is joined by Katie Ansonia, a senior financial associate.

A spokeswoman at Wells Fargo declined to comment on the departures.

Formerly with Deutsche Bank, Nick Angilletta joins the Canada-based regional broker-dealer in the middle markets position.

Dynasty, Raymond James and Stifel are among the biggest beneficiaries of recent advisor moves.

“Building on already strong momentum in that line of business, we’re confident that Nick has the skill set to further accelerate that growth trajectory,” Tom Sagissor, president of RBC Wealth Management in the U.S., said in a statement. Angilletta will be based in New York.

Angilletta’s predecessor, Justin Spitzer, now leads RBC’s U.S. research group.

At Deutsche Bank, Angilletta worked in the wealth management group, where he served as managing director and head of capital markets for the Americas, RBC says. While there, he oversaw fixed income, equities, equity capital markets and debt capital markets, foreign exchange, listed options and structured products. Prior to joining Deutsche, he worked for CitiGroup and Morgan Stanley.
