Merrill Lynch

Where do we begin? It starts with you.

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

Welcome

I can help you make better financial decisions. And by working with me you will be more confident that you are making the right decisions. My approach is different and at the heart of my philosophy is getting you to take the right amount of risk given your unique circumstances. I find most investors either take too much risk or not enough.

My focus is on you and your goals. At Merrill we practice Goals Based Wealth Management (GBWM) and your personal goals drive our investment recommendations. This contrasts with traditional brokers who base their advice on how they predict the market will perform over the next few months or years.

An integral aspect of my practice is to listen intently to the questions my clients ask. I do this not only so I can answer in a thoughtful and respectful manner, but it also informs me of where their concerns lie. I am a teacher at heart and love to help other people learn. I’ll leave the jargon and fast-talking to Wall Street types who just want your money.

I have extensive experience in the financial services industry and this is important to you because I use everything I know to help you be successful. I worked for over 30 years on Wall Street as a Research Analyst, Salesperson, Trader and Manager with some of the best firms in the industry including Lehman Brothers, First Boston, Swiss Bank and UBS. In these positions I was based all over the world including in New York, Tokyo, London, Chicago, and San Francisco.

In terms of formal training and experience I became a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder in 2001. I also hold various FINRA Registrations including the Series 3 (National Commodities Futures), Series 4 (Registered Options Principal), Series 7 (General Securities Representative), Series 8 (General Securities Sales Supervisor), Series 24 (General Securities Principal), Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law) & Series 65 (Uniform Investment Advisor Law).

Capabilities

Using the broad investing resources of Merrill, I can also assist with income management, education funding, retirement planning, and guidance for executives with concentrated stock positions, traditional and alternative investments, wealth transfer and estate planning services. And with your permission we can also work closely with your other professionals, such as attorneys, accountants and other specialists, to help you pursue your goals.

Philosophy

I believe the best financial strategy is the one that helps you pursue your goals. That's why, from the start, we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you. Worried about managing future health care expenses? College on the horizon? Considering the sale of a business or purchase of a home? Preparing to pass your wealth to future generations? With access to the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America, I will work with you to develop strategies designed to help address your financial needs.

Approach

No two investment strategies are alike because no two investors are alike. I'll examine several components - your life priorities, investment personality and financial situation - to help create an actionable strategy with personalized advice and measurable goals. I'll be with you every step of the way, helping you track progress to your goals and working with you to adjust your investment strategy over time, as needed.

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.
