Roger Ingwersen, his son Todd and daughter Laurie launched The Harvest Group, with assistance from regulatory and compliance firm MarketCounsel and the Hamburger Law Firm, which specializes in working with investment advisers, the spokeswoman said.

Roger Ingwersen, his son Todd M. Ingwersen and daughter Laurie E. Ingwersen will now operate as an RIA out of Waltham, Mass.

The team is based in Waltham, Massachusetts, about 15 miles west of Boston and operate as an RIA. The firm will focus on high-net-worth individuals and families, using a holistic approach to wealth management.

The team has always had an "independent spirit," said Roger Ingwersen in a released statement. "In order to continue that legacy, we have made the important decision to operate independently, giving us the freedom to take full control of wealth management decisions that we believe are best suited for the needs of our clients and their families.”

Before making the move to UBS, Ingwersen worked for Wachovia Securities, Prudential Securities and Bache Halsey Stuart, where he got his industry start in 1972, according to FINRA BrokerCheck records.

His son Todd has worked by his father's side since joining Prudential Securities in 1997. His daughter Laurie joined the family business at Prudential in 2000, BrokerCheck records show.

UBS recently lost another family-run adviser team to Raymond James.
