          James Hilton
          Managing Director–Wealth Management

          Financial Advisor
           

          James “Jamie” Hilton, CEPA is a private wealth advisor in UBS’ Northeast Private Wealth Management market. He operates his own practice, The Hilton Group at UBS Financial Services.

          He continues to be recognized with this prestigious industry achievement for his long-standing commitment to providing ultra-high net worth clients with the highest quality of service.

          His mission is to help affluent investors make smart decisions with their money so they can spend more time doing what they love. He enjoys providing comprehensive advice and tailored solutions as a ‘personal CFO’ to a select number of successful families, entrepreneurs, private clients, foundations, and individuals regarding investment management, wealth preservation, tax efficiency, capital markets, charitable planning, intergenerational wealth transfer, and exit planning in his capacity as a Certified Exit Planning Advisor.

          Prior to establishing The Hilton Group in 1991, Jamie worked on the floor of the COMEX, one of the world’s largest commodities exchanges in New York.

          A life-long maritime enthusiast, Jamie races various classes of sailboats and yachts in regattas and competitions throughout the world. Being on the water teaches self-reliance, how to make decisions under difficult circumstances, and how to think on one’s feet which he considers to be great metaphors for life.
