Maria Julia joined Merrill in 2001, after graduating from Boston University with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics. In 2010 Maria Julia received her Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) designation, awarded by the Investments & Wealth Institute™ (The Institute). In her spare time, Maria Julia likes to read and cook. Together with her husband, Ruben, Maria Julia enjoys hosting dinner parties. They reside in Miami, Florida with their children, Paulina and Martin. The family often participates in Charity runs and Children/Family events.
Maria Julia offers guidance to a select group of wealthy families through a goals-based wealth management approach. She focuses on building a personal relationship with her clients and understanding their risk tolerance. Her service is around a client's entire financial needs; starting with the identification of the family’s short and long-term objectives, ending with a continuous companionship throughout the market cycles, resulting in those objectives not being side tracked by client's emotions.
Through the market's complex environments, she is constantly striving to take advantage of current market opportunities that are in line with her client's aspirations and risk profiles. In addition, as client's objectives and personal circumstances change, she efficiently utilizes Merrill’s investment resources and the banking strength of Bank of America, in order to accommodate them with bespoke strategies.
Finally, she prides herself on the relationship she has with her clients; who experience a friendly relationship based on integrity, respect, and understanding.
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.
