Julian utilizes his experience in business banking and strong relationships with Firm specialists in order to help meet every aspect of the financial lives of his high net worth clients.
Julian’s investment philosophy involves wealth preservation with a focus on consistent growth with the eventual goal of intergenerational transfer. He works with his high net worth clients in order to identify key life goals and formulates a life plan that leverages the experience of his business partners and the vast suite of industry leading services of Merrill. Investment strategies may include equities, fixed income, alternative investments, options, ETFs and other types of investments. In addition, Julian can offer clients access to banking, credit and lending from Bank of America, N.A.

When servicing clients through the Firm’s Investment Advisory Program, a Senior Portfolio Advisor may manage those strategies on a discretionary basis.

*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.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I 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.
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.
We put you first, every day.
Getting to know you is our primary goal.
Drawing from our experience and the best thinking of Merrill, we will build a strategy that reflects your unique needs, priorities and financial situation.
We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
