Winifred Wikkeling began her career in finance as an analyst in Private Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs working with entrepreneurs at the cross roads of venture capital and technology. Winifred worked closely with startup companies in developing and implementing strategies for increasing the value of their business, initial public offerings and succession, transition and exit plans.
Building on this foundation, Winifred later joined the business development team at a software startup and transitioned through its acquisition by a Fortune 500 company. Inspired to become an entrepreneur, Winifred launched a New York based luxury cosmetics company while also serving as an advisor to founders in the cosmetics and fashion industries. Her role as a business advisor and her increased desire to be of service led her to return to her first passion leading her to her current role of Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management.
As a founder Winifred now advisor understands the deep commitment and sacrifice of business owners and the importance of having a well thought out plan following a liquidity event. Leveraging the investment resources of Merrill and access to the business banking capabilities of Bank of America, Winifred guides her clients through the complexities of their unique financial constructs with customized wealth management strategies. Her focus is on developing tailored plans for her clients and their families and businesses to facilitate the achievement of short - and long-term financial goals. Passionate about delivering excellent service and advice, Winifred is able to guide her clients through investment strategies, wealth management, estate transfer as well as philanthropy and legacy planning.
Winifred earned her bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Rhetoric from the University of California at Berkeley. She still loves spending time in her dual home countries of the Netherlands and Suriname and after many years of living in New York Winifred is glad to have returned to California where she enjoys the outdoors, particularly hiking as well as mentoring small business owners in economic development zones.
