Brandon joined Merrill Lynch in 2011. As a Wealth Management Advisor Brandon is able to unite his passion for the markets with his desire to help clients achieve their goals. His objective is to become a trusted resource to each client so that they may rely on him for guidance in their pursuit of financial security.
In 2011 Brandon earned an M.B.A. with a concentration in Finance from the University of La Verne. Prior to business school he graduated with a bachelor's degree from San Diego State University in 2004. Brandon has achieved the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) certification as well as the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM designation.
Brandon and his wife Tamra reside in Newport Beach along with their two children, James and Addison. The Baldwin family enjoys spending time outdoors; favorite activities include hiking our local trails and unwinding at the beach.
Every client has their own unique set of needs and objectives. Brandon and his strategy team believe that the investment portfolio is but one of the financial needs deserving of attention. This level of detail and bespoke service is provided consistently at Merrill Lynch.
Brandon helps Merrill Lynch clients plan holistically for the long-term by adhering to a proven approach based on the Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Process:
1. Establish Clear Objectives
2. Evaluate & Define Strategy
3. Implement Recommendations
4. Review Progress & Refine Goals

*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. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management 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.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I 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 Wealth Management Advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
We put you first, every day.
Getting to know you is our primary goal.
Drawing from our experience and the best thinking of Merrill, we will build a strategy that reflects your unique needs, priorities and financial situation.
We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
