A former UBS Advisor with more than $130 million in assets and $1.2 million in annual production made a move to RBC Wealth Management-U.S.

Peter Cleary and client associate Mariana Ali will be joining RBC's Norwell, Mass. Office, and report to Boston Complex Director Paul Leyden, according to a statement from the firm.

Cleary started his career in 1991, according to FINRA records. His move follows another wirehouse grab by RBC. The Canadian-owned firm picked up a former Morgan Stanley director, Christopher Anderson, this week to oversee RBC's Atlanta complex and expansion plans for the South.
