Bryan Staff, Managing Partner of Merchant Investment Management (“Merchant”), today announced the launch of Regal Wealth Management (“Regal”), an SEC Registered Investment Advisory firm based in New York City. Joining Regal is Managing Director Jason Bell, who began his career as an investment specialist at JP Morgan Private Bank and most recently was a financial advisor at UBS Financial Services. Regal has also added investment advisor Aron Wegner to Bell’s team. Wegner previously was an associate at Nomura Securities International. Regal also enjoys a strategic relationship with Monarch Business & Wealth Management, a multi-family office that serves many artists, entertainers and professional athletes.
“We’re proud to partner with Jason, Aron and the entire Regal Wealth Management team and welcome the firm as a strategic partner of Merchant,” said Staff. “We have several wealth advisory teams set to join Regal over the coming months, and we are genuinely excited about the near-term growth trajectory and strategic relationship with Barry Klarberg and our partners at Monarch.”
Harry Tawil, a principal at both Monarch and Regal, expressed his excitement about the growth of the firm. “The establishment of Regal as a wealth management firm is highly complementary to the family office and business management services currently offered through Monarch. Clients will now have access to the increased offering at their choosing,” Tawil said.
Regal provides comprehensive wealth management services, using a goals-based approach to both planning and asset management. Serving primarily high-net-worth clients, the firm also focuses on risk management, tax minimization and legacy planning, as well as assisting with both business and personal financing needs through its relationships with credit facilities.
