At Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, 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

A Full-Service, Strategic Approach Focused on Client Needs

Parry & Associates Wealth Management Group was founded with the goal of providing personal and dedicated attention, backed by the resources and intellectual capital of a global financial services company. Our extensive experience and diverse capabilities help position us to build a strong connection between your financial vision today and the life you dream of for tomorrow.

With access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and the banking convenience of Bank of America, Parry & Associates Wealth Management Group can act as the primary financial advisor for your family, your company or your nonprofit organization. We offer you advice and guidance on key financial events in your life—retirement, business sales, inheritance, family changes and wealth transfer strategies.

We think you'll find our most important contribution to you and your family is our insight. We understand the power of affluence, of capital and of markets—and we use what we've learned to help you. We hope you'll take the time to get to know us better and find out for yourself how our integrity and ability can make a real difference in how you handle your wealth. For this generation—and the next.

The Parry & Associates Wealth Management Group Difference

We limit our business to a select handful of affluent family groups with wealth needs that are complex and demand dedicated attention, care and skill. We are committed to meeting your highest expectations by drawing on all our experience, know-how and resources to help you manage your wealth.

However, the real difference comes down to more than just numbers on a balance sheet. We believe we can serve you best because we take the time to understand the goals and objectives you value most. In getting to know all about you, your family and your goals, we can then guide you on the path toward financial independence.

Addressing Each Aspect of Your Financial Life

Wealth management is an interactive, ongoing process, including candid communication and knowledgeable advice and guidance on investments and estate planning services, and through access to Bank of America, cash and liability management. We use Merrill's exclusive Wealth Outlook® analytical process to gain valuable insights into your true net worth, investment positions, credit and debt, retirement readiness and much more. This enables us to help you identify and implement customized strategies to pursue your personal financial goals.

A solid wealth management strategy looks at every aspect of your financial life:

Wealth preservation—We help develop practical, durable income and asset allocation strategies designed to support this generation…and create wealth to be passed on to the next.

Strategic investment core—Using Merrill's open investment platform, we can recommend a risk-appropriate "core" investment portfolio targeted to your goals, as well as other diverse allocations targeting a particular purpose or objective.

Income and capital appreciation—Based on your needs for growth and income, we can detail a combination of income and investment approaches designed to take advantage of upside potential.

A Portal to Powerful Services

From market evaluation to asset allocation, Parry & Associates Wealth Management Group follows a disciplined process that considers economic conditions, tax implications and overall risk. We offer you:

Discretionary portfolio management—You can delegate to Charles and Curtis Parry investment management responsibilities for your portfolios, meaning they have discretion over certain investment decisions surrounding your investment strategy. Once they have confirmed your goals and life priorities, as well as identified your portfolio investment objective, time horizon, risk factor and liquidity needs, Charles and Curtis will recommend targeted asset allocations for your portfolios to help pursue your specific investment objectives. Granting them authority allows them to respond to market changes, price volatility and global events with the ability to make adjustments, if needed, to help your portfolio stay on track toward meeting your goals. Chase Parry is a portfolio advisor, who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their investment objectives by recommending individual, or any combination of, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management or approved third- party investment managers’ strategies, funds or portfolios.

Fixed-income investments—Whether you're seeking tax minimization strategies, to help preserve assets or generate additional income, we can help design a suitable fixed-income investment array.

Separately managed accounts—Where warranted, we may recommend allocating assets to a separate account handled by a third-party private asset manager.

Alternative investments—Where appropriate, for certain clients, we may recommend alternative investments, such as private equity, managed futures, hedge funds or hard assets.

Annuities—For investors seeking consistent, reliable income, we may suggest one or more fixed or variable annuity accounts.

*Some or all alternative investments may not be suitable for certain investors. Certain alternative investments carry significant risk and are not subject to the same regulatory oversight as mutual funds and other traditional investments.  For these reasons, access to alternative investments may be limited to investors who are designated as sophisticated, high-net-worth investors.

Your Financial Strategy

We offer you access to the investing insights of Merrill, as well as banking, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America to help you pursue your goals. We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
