DAVID EARL SPENCER works primarily with:
1. Physicians, Nurses & Healthcare Professionals
2. Business Owners & C-Level Executives
3. Other Professionals Nearing Retirement
I believe clients value the disciplined approach I bring to each relationship, and they understand that an effective retirement and investment strategy will address every important aspect of their financial life.
The focus is on several key areas. First, I listen carefully to make sure that to understand you and your goals, your time horizon and risk capacity.
I follow a proven process:
1. Assess your current financial situation
2. Articulate your needs and prioritize your financial goals
3. Develop recommendations based on your desired outcomes
4. Implement personalized goals-based strategies that fit your needs
5. Regularly review your progress to goals
As you consider your financial outlook, and what is at stake, it is essential that you are working with an advisor that understands the intricacies of all stages of the wealth management process. You need someone to help you build and grow your assets during your wealth accumulation stage (pre-retirement), a someone to help you manage income during your distribution stage (retirement), and someone to help you during your transition stage (estate planning needs). David Earl Spencer provides advice and guidance in each of these important life stages - for you and your family.
My most deeply held principle at Merrill Lynch is, "Clients Come First". As part of that tradition, I strive to understand your specific needs. Once I have a firm understanding of what matters most to you, my team and I can offer the depth of Merrill Lynch resources to support a disciplined wealth management process.
My team, Broadway Wealth Management Group is a financial advisory team you can trust for advice and guidance at every important moment and life event. When you put your trust & confidence in us, and follow our advice and guidance, we are able to help you reach your financial goals and objectives. Helping you achieve wealth is our commitment; helping you achieve life is our difference. Let us put our powerful resources to work for you.
