Taking care of your family and other people in your life

Managing significant wealth is a considerable responsibility— especially because the stakes are high for your family and your future. Sometimes the demands of this task can make it difficult to concentrate on what matters most to you: pursuing personal and family aspirations, exploring new opportunities, and living the life you have always envisioned. When families reach a certain level of wealth and complexity, traditional advisory services may no longer be sufficient.
With a passion for life and obsession with excellence I see myself as a guardian of tradition helping families design what their futures look like to them. My team and I focus on helping highly successful families manage the full spectrum of their financial affairs through tailored multi-generational strategies and cutting-edge resources from Merrill. Money management, retirement planning, estate planning services, insurance, tax minimization strategies, business planning succession—we will bring together all of these elements into a cohesive and integrated wealth management plan that will help you enhance and preserve your wealth while enjoying the lifestyle it affords.
