Sean Dhila is a Financial Advisor and Portfolio Advisor in Washington, D.C., and has been in the financial services industry since 2011. Sean began his career at Merrill Lynch in 2014, as a Client Associate where he was able to build and strengthen relationships with clients, helping to service their accounts in order to meet their financial goals. Since joining Merrill, his primary focus has been on helping individuals, families, business owners, and hoteliers reach their short and long-term financial objectives. Given his strong foundation in his abilities to assist clients with their financial matters, Sean truly learned all aspects of wealth management allowing him to seamlessly transition into the role of a financial advisor.
A Portfolio Advisor, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their investment objectives by recommending individual, or any combination of, Merrill Lynch or approved third- party investment managers’ strategies, funds or portfolios.
Sean firmly believes that the best approach to wealth management is to always put the client’s needs and objectives first. He realizes and acknowledges that each individual has unique and specific goals, thus providing a customized approach to building financial strategies in the best interest of each client. Sean is able to encompass all aspects of a strong and detailed financial strategy consistent with the client’s values, aspirations, and beliefs. This in turn allows him to not only build and create custom financial pictures, but also utilize the firm’s internal specialist in the areas of trust planning/administration, life and long-term care insurance, annuities, banking and lending services through Bank of America to help ensure a holistic wealth management experience.
Sean graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.A in Finance and a minor in Economics. Sean is a Montgomery County native, and currently resides in Olney, Maryland. During his spare time, he enjoys traveling, playing golf, cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with his close friends and family.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
