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

Knowing You To Better Guide You

Our team is a dynamic group of forward thinking professionals.  Our complementary skills match the diverse needs and backgrounds of clients looking for both financial guidance and a full-service banking experience.  By running our team as a boutique within a larger institution we’re able to offer uncompromised service with a personal experience.

Our philosophy centers on knowing our clients and paying attention to the details that matter – understanding “why” they are investing.  We take joy in watching clients fulfill their dreams and take pleasure in guiding clients on how to preserve and grow their wealth.

With both domestic and international experience our credentialed team focuses on providing custom strategies free from proprietary products.  We guide clients using data driven analysis coupled with behavioral finance to blend the “art and science” of investment management.  This disciplined approach provides a framework to guide clients of each generation of a family with different levels of experience.

My Approach

We approach each client and family member on an individual basis as their own unique circumstance.  The trust clients hand to us is a responsibility we take seriously – it is our job to understand their situation and guide them to a strategy that fits their needs, personality, and family structure.

Providing a boutique experience means we remain directly connected with clients through in-person meetings, regular communications, and the latest technology.  Each client has a key contact on our team to be their first call as well as the support of each of our teammates to advise on their needs.

My Capabilities & Services

Ethan Grossman's skills, ethics, and educational background are directly influenced by the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) program which helps shape the disciplined process he follows with clients.  

This process centers on three key areas: Planning, Investment, and Lending:


I believe a detailed wealth management plan helps clients see the big picture and focus on long and short-term goals rather than market fluctuations. I utilize sophisticated technology to simplify client’s plans to one page - called a Wealth Outlook.  For clients with a specific lifestyle goal this tool helps to bring confidence to their ability to achieve their dreams.


Ethan recognizes asset allocation and diversification are the most important determinants of investment performance.  He then overlays dynamic strategies that are adapted to client’s evolving goals and changing market conditions – periodically checking in with clients to help ensure their goals and allocation are in sync. All of this is done with the end goal of preserving and growing the wealth of clients over time. 


I offer a customized approach to meet the unique financial needs of wealthy clients. Using a broad array of assets as collateral, including liquid and non-traditional assets, loans can be personalized to each client's specific goals and objectives.  Whether it be to purchase a business or commercial real estate properties, a yacht, airplane, artwork, or multi-million dollar home or simply bridge cash flow needs; we have customized lending solutions to meet the circumstance.

Your Financial Strategy

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.
