A.J. LeGrone CFP®, CPWA®, CPFA
First Vice President
Wealth Management Advisor
A.J. is a Wealth Management Advisor and CFP® certificant, a designation awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. Mr. LeGrone also holds the Certified Private Wealth Advisor® certification, administered by the Investments & Wealth Institute™ (The Institute) and taught in conjunction with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Prior to joining Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2011, A.J. had been in the insurance services industry since 2000. Planning a client’s current and future financial path begins with diligently listening to all concerns facing the client. With this in mind, A.J. focuses on the individual needs and desires of clients and their families.
A continual, personal client relationship helps to ensure your financial strategy can be adjusted quickly to compensate for changing markets and needs. A.J.’s approach to wealth management is to identify the current needs of clients and together, forecast future concerns. No two clients are alike; hence, no two wealth management plans or investment strategies should be the same either. By customizing asset allocation models and utilizing individual portfolio managers when needed, a truly holistic approach to financial management may be achieved.
A graduate of the University of South Alabama in 1999 with a B.S. in Finance, A.J. is married to Stephanie who teaches Math at St. Mary Catholic School. The LeGrones have one son and are parishioners at St. Mary’s in Mobile, AL. A.J. is the Vice President of Pi Kappa Phi Housing Corporation, Vice President of the Pi Kappa Phi Alumni Association and a member of The Knights of Columbus-St. Mary’s Council. They actively support Catholic Social Services, St. Vincent de Paul, The Archdiocese of Mobile and Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
