My service model at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management is focused on consistency and discipline to provide my clients with an exemplary service experience and access to highly sophisticated financial solutions based upon the client's risk tolerance, time horizon, liquidity needs and overall investment goals. I apply this goals-based approach to servicing the financial needs of high net worth individuals and their families, businesses, corporate 401(k) plans, and endowments of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.
My approach to wealth management is consultative, objective and committed to excellence. Drawing upon the breadth and depth of Merrill's wealth management platform and with access to Bank of America's expansive banking services, I work with my clients to implement sophisticated financial strategies that go beyond investing in stocks and bonds. I help my clients build and transfer their wealth, satisfy current and expected liquidity needs, manage expected college education costs, plan for maintaining sufficient retirement income, and help ensure that our non-profit organizations are effectively executing within the parameters set forth in their Investment Policy Statements.
Clients can expect a service model centered on the highest level of client confidentiality and full disclosure. I focus on maintaining open communication and proactive, periodic reviews. I take the time to listen to and review my clients' financial situations in order to develop the strategies and solutions necessary to help meet their short- and long-term financial goals.
