Where do we begin? It starts with you.

At Merrill Lynch, your financial advisor focuses on the things you care about most- family, goals and priorities - even as they change over the years.

Understanding Your Life

Welcome

Millwee Burkett Robinson & Associates is a wealth management team based in Little Rock, Arkansas. We help meet the diverse and changing needs of our clients by leveraging our access to the global resources of both Merrill Lynch and Bank of America – two of the world’s most respected financial institutions- as well as the resources of many external partners. At Millwee Burkett Robinson & Associates, we understand the difficult task of selecting the right advisor for your family or business.  Together we offer over five decades of experience managing the intricacies of personal and corporate wealth. Our nationally recognized professional credentials include CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) practitioner, Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA®), and Certified 401(k) Professional (C(k)P®) designations. Few advisors can rival our accreditation.

Philosophy

We believe wealth management involves more than just “running the numbers.” We look beyond our client’s financial statements to discover ways we can help make an invaluable difference in their lives. How we accomplish this is what makes us a very different wealth management team. Other financial advisors boast similar services, yet few offer real evidence of meaningful differentiation. We work continuously to distinguish ourselves in ways that truly matter to our clients.

 

 

Capabilities

Our years of experience in managing through multiple market fluctuations have helped us understand that we can help you pursue your goals by being consistent in our approach. We’ll work with you to build a portfolio strategy that helps you pursue your goals – no matter the financial environment. We’ll take into account your objectives, time horizon and liquidity needs and, perhaps most important, your sensitivity to risk and investment personality.

Approach

Working with us means working with advisors truly dedicated to your success. Our approach is simple, transparent and supported by experienced investment guidance.

We believe our clients realize the full value of our relationship, including:

  • helping you make significant decisions
  • recognizing your life priorities and goals
  • understanding your investment personality
  • helping you prioritize and pursue goals
  • being transparent by making possibilities, fees and risks clear
  • taking steps to help you preserve income during a life challenge
  • educating the younger generation about investments and the markets

Your approach to investing

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill Lynch developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial strategy we develop together to help you with your approach for what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help me get to know you – to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will give you a sense of the full assessment and help us provide you with additional insights and resources.

Understanding your goals and priorities

Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.

Individual and Family Clients
We believe that true financial success can be achieved when you’re able to make investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. So whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or fund a child’s education, we start by getting to know you and how you feel about the following seven life priorities.

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals
Corporate Clients
Within Merrill Lynch and Bank of America, Pat, Toby, and Sylas are included in a select few advisors that serve privately held and publicly traded corporations as Retirement Benefits Consultants. Toby also serves corporate clients as a Defined Contribution Investment Consultant. In these roles, we serve as retirement plan advisors and deliver the 3(21) Investment Fiduciary capabilities of Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. When interviewing financial advisors, plan sponsors often ask, “Do you do retirement plans?” Because many of the 300,000 financial advisors nationwide typically work with only one or two retirement plan clients, most advisors satisfy that minimum qualification question. We believe the better question to ask advisors is “How much time do you spend each day serving your current plan clients?” At Millwee Burkett Robinson and Associates, we allocate a majority of our time each and every day helping plan sponsors fulfill their fiduciary obligations, while also helping employees optimize the retirement benefit for their personal financial goals. This daily commitment to plan service is how we make an invaluable difference for our corporate clients. In 2016, Toby Burkett was included among the Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Plan Advisors**.
**Source: The Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Plan Advisors list (FT 401) is an independent listing produced by the Financial Times (September 2016). The FT 401 is based on data gathered from financial advisors, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflects each advisor’s status in seven primary areas, including Defined Contribution (DC) plan assets under management, growth in DC plan business, specialization in DC plan business, and other factors.

Access to what you need, when you need it

MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.

  • Your advisor is never more than a click away within our site or mobile apps
  • Manage account security with our customizable security capabilities such as touch id, one time passcode, and other security features
  • Access to your complete financial life is available with My Financial Picture, Merrill Lynch’s asset aggregation tool

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.

Let’s Have a Conversation

Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.

As Merrill Lynch financial advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
