Adam understands that each investor has unique goals and aspirations. There is no single strategy that can meet every client’s needs. He works with high net worth individuals, families, business owners and entrepreneurs around the country by delivering retirement, trust and estate planning services, access to private banking and lending solutions through Bank of America, N.A., investment strategies, and other family and business-related financial services. He takes pride in providing a comprehensive, over-the-top, quality approach to his clients’ financial lives.
APPROACH TO WEALTH GUIDANCE
The Group’s collaborative approach is centered on listening to and knowing client concerns, experiences, and desires. Combining their knowledge of a client’s cash-on-hand needs and willingness to tolerate risk enables them the ability to suggest strategies that focus on where assets would be best placed to help reach expressed desires and goals. Client satisfaction is paramount to how Adam operates, so he believes in the importance of real communication and follow-up. His business is about people and the ease of a client’s ability to obtain information that leads to better decision-making.
As a Merrill Lynch Financial Advisor Adam knows that no matter where someone is from or from whom or what one might currently get advice, he can show clients the most powerful and enduring professional relationship for which one should strive. Adam always works for and does right by the client through simplifying the complexity of financial life by embracing time-tested principles and an exclusive, proven goals-based wealth management process. This allows clients to focus on goal-outcome rather than everyday market swings. He looks forward to helping you reach your financial goals.
