A two-adviser, four-person team that managed $500 million in assets at Morgan Stanley in New York has joined the Alex. Brown unit of Raymond James.

The two advisers —Todd L. Kissel and Joshua Pasahow — were joined by associates Ida Ng and John Rivera. The group operates as East Coast Advisors.

Mr. Kissel began his financial services career in 1986 at Merrill Lynch. He joined UBS in 2000 and moved to Citigroup Smith Barney in 2008. The firm was acquired by Morgan Stanley the following year.

Mr. Pasahow, whose grandparents were clients of Mr. Kissel, joined him at Citi in 2008.
