Clients and their families ask important questions like: “Can I retire and live the life I want in retirement?"; “What financial strategies will help me achieve my retirement goals?”; "How can I pay for my children's or grandchildren's college education?"; and, “Will I be able to leave a legacy for my children or my favorite charity?”. Craig understands that clients may spend nearly as long in retirement as they did working and they want their money to allow them a safe and satisfying retired life. He tries to help his clients answer the many questions they have as the work towards and then into their retirement years.
Our team brings a high level of knowledge and experience to Merrill Lynch Wealth Management clients. Craig hold three financial advanced designations above and beyond the normal FINRA registration requirements. He has over 27 years of experience in the financial service industry helping clients with setting goal, investments, insurance and wealth management. This combination of experience and knowledge allows us to confidently advise clients through retirement and help them try to solve their financial challenges.
