Get To Know Us

Supported by the global resources of Merrill, our team is comprised of talented and experienced individuals committed to building strong client relationships based on trust and personalized service.

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

FAMILY. INTEGRITY. DEPENDABILITY.

As a mother-son team in the financial services industry, we believe we are a rarity. As a team who genuinely understands and appreciates the dynamics of money in the family environment, we believe we are exceptional. At the core of our team is a family bond, along with one of respect and joy in each other's lives. This bond drives us to be better individuals, better family members, and better advisors.

EXPERIENCE. COMPETENCE. DEDICATION.

Our work begins with your vision of the future: where you see yourself and your family in the years to come. Using a sophisticated, collaborative approach backed by ongoing continuing education, we help you clarify your vision, prioritize your financial objectives, and organize a strategy you can use to pursue them as we guide you along the way.

Our collaboration and attention to detail extend beyond our relationship with you. With your permission, we coordinate our efforts with those of your other professional advisors, to structure a united team designed to keep you moving forward, and help you address factors that may increase risk.

Philosophy

Products, individual stocks, and investments come and go. A solid investment philosophy, however, is the foundation for each strategy we recommend. Our philosophy has been honed through decades of experience, in both good markets and bad, and can be distinguished by six key tenets:

CALCULATE RISK

Instead of simply asking how much risk you can tolerate, we believe in evaluating risk in the context of your specific personal wealth management strategy. This helps us to determine the minimum level necessary to help you pursue your vision.

DIVERSIFY

Genuine diversification is more than mixing various assets in a pie chart -- it is diversifying among the many types of risk. Byond just the potential loss of principal, risk may be due to currency exchange, liquidity restraints, changing interest rates, credit worthiness, and more. It's critical to analyze each type of risk -- and allocate assets accordingly.

CONSIDER PURPOSE

Not all assets serve the same purpose; they should be managed according to the appropriate objective.

BE AGNOSTIC

We firmly believe that investment choices you make should be product and firm agnostic, and that strategies should be built on freedome of choice -- from within Merrill Lynch and beyond.

THINK GLOBALLY

The world is getting smaller every day, which means more potential opportunities exist outside the United States than ever before.

BE DEDICATED

Investing is a marathon, not a sprint. Ongoing due diligence and education require a discipline that has no maturity date.

Focus On Individuals and Families

We work primarily with high-net-worth individuals and families. 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 trusted professionals to help clients pursue their goals, drawing on the investment insights of Merrill and access to the banking convenience of Bank of America as we do so.

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.

      *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.

      Let’s Have a Conversation

      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.
