The Experience and Dedication to Help Enrich Your Financial Life

Every client has a vision of their future. Where they want to be. What they want to be doing. We want you to think big—and we strive to help you pursue the financial flexibility to do the things that are important to you. Through dedication, hard work, and insightful advice and guidance, we can help pave the way with clear, customized strategies that align with your income requirements, risk tolerance, liquidity needs, time horizon and your wishes to provide for the next generation.

Since 1991, we have helped clients focus on their objectives and address them using wealth management strategies intended to balance near-term requirements and longer-term goals. By taking the time to fully understand who you are and what matters most to you, we can create the customized strategies you need, bringing the various aspects of your financial life together.

To Us, It's the Relationship that Matters

While there are certainly similarities among the individuals we choose to work with, there are of course many more differences. We acknowledge those differences and use them as a foundation upon which to build a relationship with you that can help define and strengthen your wealth management strategies.

The development of a customized investment strategy must take into account the various aspects of your financial life—your goals, financial objectives, and the issues and people that are important to you. We spend considerable time and effort developing robust strategies designed to endure market fluctuations, while still addressing your performance expectations and risk tolerance. Our in-depth understanding of you allows us to build a strong relationship with you, which we believe is an important foundation for the advice and guidance we offer.

As your dedicated team of Merrill advisors, we work steadily to foster a strong, evolving relationship with you. Our disciplined and structured, process-driven approach is designed to help you preserve your wealth now and in the future.

A Wealth Management Process Designed to Strengthen Your Financial Life

We can also help you with important strategic milestones such as:

  • Identifying, prioritizing and balancing your financial goals
  • Regularly determining and defining the financial risks you face
  • Delivering investment strategies designed to uncover more opportunities while helping to manage potential investment risks across asset classes
  • Formally reviewing your progress and measuring your results against your objectives
  • Making appropriate modifications in response to market shifts or changes in your circumstances
Our simple, yet direct process—establish objectives, set strategy, implement strategies and review progress—is designed to give you the freedom to explore your objectives and make informed decisions about how to address them.

Clarity, Customization and Global Resources Help Define Your Strategy

As economic and financial market conditions change, so may your own financial situation. By blending strategies, we continually refine the wealth management approach that works best for you. We frequently turn to BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research, which identifies and evaluates fresh investment opportunities that can affect many aspects of your 
financial life.

In addition, we rely on the insight provided by the Investment Management & Guidance Group, whose rigorous due diligence of third-party money managers from around the world helps ensure that they meet Merrill's stringent standards. Once we have their recommendations, we monitor investment managers' performance to see that they align with your objectives, time frame, liquidity needs and risk tolerance.

One of the ways we can customize your wealth management strategy is by examining your goals and financial objectives from a variety of different perspectives. These include:

  • Balance sheet review (net worth analysis)
  • Access to credit and lending solutions through Bank of America, N.A.
  • Estate planning services
  • Tax-minimization strategies
  • Correlation analysis and other risk minimizing efforts (standard deviation, alpha)
  • Tracking progress by means of a sophisticated process of periodic monitoring and portfolio review

      *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.

      Why Merrill Lynch?

      As Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
