Welcome

Our mission is to understand you and your priorities. To take the time, to ask hard, smart questions and to listen carefully, then to understand, in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today, and where you’d like it to be tomorrow. We then help you design, implement and periodically monitor a customized wealth management strategy that helps you and your family pursue your personal financial goals without unnecessary investment risk. Our wealth management approach is about using wealth to help turn goals into reality. When you succeed, we succeed.

Philosophy

We believe that 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 on to future generations? With access to the investing insights of Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America, we will work with you to develop strategies that are designed to address your priorities and financial needs.

Approach

Our approach to investing is grounded in an understanding of you. It all begins with a conversation. We take the time to get to know you—your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are and how you define success. We'll work together to understand your investment personality, prioritize your goals and build a financial strategy that reflects your needs. We believe investors can benefit from our advice, access to the investment insights offered by Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America. When it comes to your success, there’s only one financial strategy that really matters — yours.

Your approach to investing

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill Lynch developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial strategy we develop together to help you with your approach for what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help me get to know you – to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will give you a sense of the full assessment and help us provide you with additional insights and resources.

Understanding your goals and priorities

Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.

Capabilities

You can’t feel good about your finances unless you know exactly where you are, where you want to go, and how much you may need to get there. We work with you to develop a customized financial strategy, drawing on the best thinking of our firm, to help you with your financial future. We will manage all aspects of your relationship, making it clear what you’re paying for and what you’re getting. As your life and the markets change, we will meet periodically to help make sure you’re on track in pursuing your goals and to adjust your strategy as needed for the journey ahead.

Focus On High-Net-Worth Individuals and Families

We’re fully versed in the many issues that affect wealth management. No matter what your short and long-term goals may be, we’ll begin by getting to know you as we explore the following seven priorities together.

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals
We work closely with other professionals to help clients pursue their wealth management goals, drawing on the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and access to the banking convenience of Bank of America as we do so.

Access to what you need, when you need it

MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.

  • Your advisor is never more than a click away within our site or mobile apps
  • Manage account security with our customizable security capabilities such as touch id, one time passcode, and other security features
  • Access to your complete financial life is available with My Financial Picture, Merrill Lynch’s asset aggregation tool

*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. 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, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we 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.
