Snowden Lane adds Kirby-Hayes Group from Merrill Lynch


Former Merrill Lynch advisers Ryan Kirby and Christopher Hayes have joined independent, adviser-owned wealth advisory firm Snowden Lane Partners as the Kirby-Hayes Group in Salisbury, Maryland.

Kirby and Hayes, each a partner and director, oversee USD160 million in client assets and will work in partnership with Snowden Lane’s existing Mayo-Bryer Group, located in Bethesda, MD.
The combined teams will serve client assets in excess of USD450 million, and the Salisbury office will operate as a satellite of the Bethesda location.
“Ryan and Chris have distinguished themselves as consummate financial professionals, both of whom have built stellar reputations in the financial advisory arena,” says Greg Franks (pictured), managing partner and Snowden Lane’s president. “We are expanding our regional presence and the Kirby-Hayes Group is yet another partnership that makes our independent model so successful. We look forward to the many contributions we know Ryan and Chris will make to Snowden Lane.”
Senior partner and managing director, Alex Bryer, says: “I have known Ryan and Chris for many years and they are outstanding advisors dedicated to their clients’ financial success. The addition of their experience and accreditations further enhances the collective expertise of our advisory team. It’s a continual goal of ours to attract this calibre of people to our partnership.”
Kirby has been a financial adviser for 15 years, the past 13 of which he spent as a Merrill Lynch wealth management adviser.
Hayes specialises in wealth management strategies for airline pilots, business owners and organisations.
“Snowden Lane’s values-driven culture and its mission to put clients first was a key factor in attracting us to the firm,” says Kirby. “We’re thrilled to be part of this dynamic team and look forward to acquainting our clients with everything Snowden Lane has to offer.”
