Bank of America Corp (BoA) Merrill Lynch has appointed Robert Labriola to the Wealth Management Division, following signals from the banking conglomerate of a rekindled initiative to hire more personnel.
BoA Merrill Lynch is a multinational financial services provider across nearly every asset class. Outside of a few recent hires, BoA has been largely absent from newswires, save for its involvement and attention by a regulatory probe into the manipulation of Forex rates this past February.
