Alfredo Aguirre is a Senior Vice President and Wealth Management Advisor. He joined the financial services industry in 1998, as a licensed Financial Advisor and later Merrill in 2006. He has earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, CFP® certification as well as the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM,CRPC® designation.

He believes clients entrust their financial well-being to him, because they want a financial advisor who understands sophisticated portfolio and wealth management strategies, and is able to communicate in a direct and genuine manner the advantages and disadvantages of various courses of action. They want this information based specifically on their family’s needs and goals rather than a generic plan.

Each family describes financial success differently; to some, it means making employment optional, allowing them to spend more time on leisure activities; others may want to leave a substantial, meaningful legacy. Each family also has difficult and sometimes uncomfortable situations to face and plan for, topics that require a great degree of sensitivity, neutrality and empathy.

Alfredo and his family have resided and been contributors to the Broward County Community since 1981. Previously he has served as Chairman of numerous boards & clubs, named finalist for the 211 Board leader of the Year award in 2012.

        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


        My mission is to understand you and what matters most to you. To take the time, to ask hard, smart questions and to listen carefully, then to understand, in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today, and where you’d like it to be tomorrow. I help you design and implement a customized wealth management approach that helps you and your family pursue your personal financial goals while helping manage investment risk. My wealth management approach is about using wealth to help turn goals into reality.


        I believe the best financial approach is the one that helps you pursue your goals. That's why, from the start, we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you. Worried about managing future health care expenses? College on the horizon? Considering the sale of a business or purchase of a home? Preparing to pass your wealth to future generations? With access to the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America, I will work with you to develop an approach designed to help address your financial needs.


        I begin every relationship with a conversation, helping you identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether it's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing your financial approach to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, I start by listening to learn more about you and your family.

        Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help me get to know you better as an investor and help you refine your investing preferences. Together, I can help customize your investment approach. Using an understanding of your priorities and investment personality as a foundation, I help you access the full breadth of resources from Bank of America’s banking products and services and Merrill’s investment insights to address all aspects of your financial life.

        Your approach to investing

        Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial approach we develop together to help you pursue what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help us get to know you - to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will help us provide you with additional insights and resources.

        Understanding your goals and priorities

        Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial approach.


        My process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. My ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. I view myself as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.

        Trust and fiduciary services are provided by Bank of America Private Bank, a division of Bank of America, N.A., Member FDIC, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America Corporation (“BofA Corp.”).

        Focus On Individuals, Families and Small Businesses

        I believe that financial success can be achieved when you’re able to make investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. So whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or fund a child’s education, I start by getting to know you and how you feel about the following seven life priorities.

        • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
        • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
        • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
        • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
        • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
        • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
        • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals
