Tom Troy/UBS Wealth Management Americas

Tom Troy is the head of Capital Markets and Sales for UBS Wealth Management Americas. A member of the UBS Wealth Management Americas Executive Committee, Tom has spent more than 30 years in the finance. Before joining UBS, his career included 20 years in Institutional Equity Capital Markets at Merrill Lynch.

Tom is actively involved in community service and is proud of UBS’s commitment to corporate responsibility. He sits on the boards of St. Ignatius School in the Bronx; the Center for Global Collaboration and Health Initiatives, which promotes emergency healthcare services to Southeast Asia and Africa; and the First Aid Squad of Summit, NJ.

Tom holds a B.A. from College of the Holy Cross and an M.B.A. from NYU. Prior to his career in financial services, he worked as a hot tar roofer. This, combined with his Irish genes, “ensured I would always be the most freckled person at any gathering,” says the first-generation Irish American.

“My grandparents were Irish, my parents were Irish, I am Irish, my sons are Irish, the Troys will always be Irish.” His roots are in Cork on his mother Rita’s side and Mayo on his father Tom Sr.’s side.

Born in New York City, Tom now lives across the Hudson with his wife Kim and their four sons, Sean, Connor, Eamon, and Ryan.
