Paul G. Walmsley


Financial Advisor

If you'd rather plan your next marketing campaign, product launch or soccer practice than plan your finances, let's talk!

Profile

Along with a team of specialists, I provide goals-based wealth management to entrepreneurs, business owners, soccer coaches, soccer players and families.

I began my financial services career in 1990 in the United Kingdom and moved to the United States in 1996. Living and working in Beverly Hills, California, I provide access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and banking convenience of Bank of America to help address the various aspects of your financial life.

Prior to my career in wealth management, I was an NCAA and NAIA Head Men’s Soccer Coach and soccer business owner. I currently coach two AYSO United youth soccer teams in Los Angeles and I am the assistant coach for a local Jewish High School team. When not coaching soccer, I am either watching both of my sons play the beautiful game or adding to the 1000+ soccer games that I have refereed at all levels.

Let’s connect, whatever your personal goals may be. I will work with you to develop a customized financial strategy designed to help you pursue what’s most important to you.

Community involvement is an integral part of how I interact with clients and communities. I am enthusiastically involved with volunteering and fundraising for organizations such as American Youth Soccer Organization, PTA and other volunteer work.

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

My goal is to help clients pursue their personal goals, such as planning for and funding their children’s educations, helping to ensure that their money lasts in retirement, planning for their potential health care costs and managing the transfer of wealth to the younger generation. Everything I do takes into account clients’ personal perspectives and priorities. I aim to help bring simplicity and transparency to the complexities of investing; making the intimidating task of planning for the future an exciting journey of managing and helping reach your goals.

Philosophy

Life is always changing and growing more complex. Your needs and priorities specific to your family, work, health and home are continuously evolving. And since your finances are so deeply connected with the rest of your life, you need strategies that are specific to your unique situation. Even if you’re accustomed to managing your wealth on your own, you may find value in having a relationship with someone who understands your priorities and who has the knowledge and resources to help you make more informed decisions, no matter where in your life you are.

Approach

Helping you pursue your goals starts with getting to know you. We will work together to create a financial strategy that reflects your investment personality and is built around your life priorities. My process offers a flexible framework we can call upon to help you identify and prioritize your personal and professional financial goals, including areas such as education funding or your lifestyle in the future. I also offer strategies to provide the “fit” that may best serve your objectives, risk tolerance, time horizon and liquidity needs. I help you understand fees and expenses associated with your accounts.

Capabilities

In 1914, Charles Merrill said, “The interests of our customers must come first.” That’s a commitment that we still honor today. I feel Charles Merrill would be gratified to see how the business he founded continues to place a premium on service and commitment. With the investment insights of Merrill Lynch, and with access to the banking convenience of Bank of America, I can deliver services that can help you address virtually every financial challenge you face.

Focus On High-Net-Worth Individuals and Families

We’re fully versed in the many issues that affect wealth management. No matter what your short and long-term goals may be, we’ll begin by getting to know you as we explore the following seven priorities together.

  • 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
We work closely with other professionals to help clients pursue their wealth management goals, drawing on the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and access to the banking convenience of Bank of America as we do so.

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.

*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.
