RBC Wealth Management has strengthened its presence in Pittsburgh with the addition of five advisors with $2.8 million in combined production.

The firm has recruited Russell Sherred, Pamela Pasterick, Ken Kuska, Kathleen Corrales and Matthew Lawrence, who are listed in order of when they joined this year. All are former Morgan Stanley advisors and oversaw a total $380 million in client assets. 

“We are excited to welcome these five financial advisors, as we continue to expand our presence in the Pittsburgh area,” the senior managing director of the Pittsburgh complex, Ken M. Ross, said in a statement.  “These five new advisors bring a wealth of knowledge and industry expertise to RBC Wealth Management, as well as a dedication to being responsible stewards of our clients’ assets.”
