Atlantic Trust Adds Experienced Wealth Strategist To Boston Team

ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlantic Trust today announced that Elizabeth M. "Liza" Connelly has joined the firm's Boston office as a vice president and wealth strategist.


"The addition of Liza to our Wealth Strategies Group is an important step in our ongoing commitment to hire experienced, dedicated professionals to provide integrated tax, trust, estate and philanthropic planning," said Jack Markwalter, chairman and CEO for Atlantic Trust. "As Atlantic Trust continues to grow, we remain laser-focused on creating the best possible client experience. Our people are the key to this effort."

Atlantic Trust's Boston office is home to 20 relationship managers and has more than $5.7 billion in assets under management (as of September 30, 2013). The addition of Connelly allows Atlantic Trust to better serve its existing client base and broaden relationships with many of the premier law firms in the Northeast that use and will consider Atlantic Trust as a trustee and wealth manager for their clients.  

"When clients or prospective clients can sit down with someone who understands their challenges and goals, the result is a better plan for integrating the various aspects of their financial lives," said Linda Beerman, chief fiduciary officer and head of Atlantic Trust's Wealth Strategies Group. "We believe access to tenured wealth planning professionals is critical for our clients."  

Connelly joins Atlantic Trust from the Trusts & Estates Department of Rackemann, Sawyer & Brewster, P.C., where she focused on estate planning, estate administration, trust administration and tax work for her clients. Liza previously served as an associate in Personal Client Service at Deutsch Williams Brooks DeRensis & Holland, P.C., in Boston and worked in offshore relationship management and marketing at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.  She has a niche area of pet trust planning and worked extensively on the Massachusetts pet trust statute.  Liza is an active member and has served on various committees for the Boston Estate Planning Council and is a member of the board of overseers at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  She is also on the executive committee of the Trusts & Estates Consortium in Boston and on the alumni council for Dedham Country Day School.  Liza received her Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University, her LL.M. in taxation from Boston University and a Bachelor of Arts from Miami University.  She is a member of the State Bar of Massachusetts.  Liza enjoys travelling to Africa with her husband, running and tennis.
