We will endeavor to continue in the Glickenhaus tradition to preserve and grow client wealth.'' "Neuberger Berman has a long history of managing assets for high net worth individuals and institutions," said Joseph Amato, President of Neuberger Berman. "We are excited about the coming together of Seth's long-standing investment history with our own.

The transfer of client accounts will be subject to client consent. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
