Two UBS Private Wealth Advisors from Bellevue, WA Named to Forbes’ 2018 Industry Lists


UBS Financial Services Inc. announced today that two members of its Bellevue, WA Private Wealth Management branch The Cascade Group, have received recognition in two industry lists created by Forbes and SHOOK research.

Terry Cook, Managing Director and Private Wealth Advisor has been named to Forbes 2018’s Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list, as the #1 ranked advisor in Washington State. This is the third year that Terry has been named to the list in this position. In addition, Terry’s partner Kyle Caouette, Senior Vice President and Private Wealth Advisor, has been named to Forbes’ 2018 Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors list, and is the highest ranked advisor on the list in Washington State. This is the second year that Kyle has been named to the list.

Both lists, created in partnership with SHOOK Research take into account both qualitative and quantitative data. Advisors considered ‘Best-in-State’ needed a minimum of seven years’ experience, and the final ranking was based on quantitative data, as well as an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews. Advisors considered to be ‘Top Next-Generation’ were nominated by their respective firm, then vetted and ranked by SHOOK Research using similar criteria, also considering assets under management and industry experience.

Over the last 25 years, The Cascade Group has served the needs of private business owners, by helping them plan for life-changing liquidity events. The team has developed a consultative process centered on the unique needs of the business owner and has helped guide nearly 40 client families through external sales and inter-generational transitions.

I am pleased that both Terry and Kyle of The Cascade Group have received this recognition, said John Mathews, Head of Private Wealth Management and Ultra High Net Worth Americas at UBS Global Wealth Management. “Having both advisors ranked at the top for Washington State recognizes the branch’s dedication, accomplishment and expertise in delivering exception advice to clients.

  • Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors: UBS Private Wealth Advisor, Kyle Caouette
