Wealth Management


The team is committed to understanding your values and what you want to accomplish with your assets. One-on-one conversations and communication help us get to know who you are and what you and your family want for your individual lifetimes.  We can help you concentrate on pursuing your life goals while also working with you to plan your legacy.

Welcome

Our entire team shares a common goal: to help you achieve your personal financial goals, such as planning for and funding your children’s education, helping ensure that income can last in retirement, and planning for potential health care costs. Every step in the process takes into account your personal perspectives and priorities. Our goal is to help bring simplicity and transparency to the complexities of investing, turning the often-intimidating task of planning for the future into an exciting journey of helping you pursue and reach your goals.

Philosophy

It is important that you take positive steps toward your financial future, and that means getting more than just investment advice. We take the time to get to know you and your family, your financial situation and what matters most to you. Using one-on-one collarboration as a foundation, we can work with you to build your own personalized financial strategy.

Approach

Our approach to investing is grounded in an understanding of you. It all begins with a conversation. We take the time to get to know you — your children's names, how hard you worked to get where you are and how you define success. We'll work together with you to help understand your personal investment style, prioritize your goals and build an individualized plan that reflects your needs. As an investor you can benefit from the investment insights of Merrill, along with access to trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank and credit and lending solutions from Bank of America. There’s only one financial approach that really matters — yours.

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.

Capabilities

We have the experience, knowledge and tools to understand your current financial situation and to help you create potential strategies designed to pursue your short- and long-term goals. A range of capabilities is offered to you, including retirement income planning and potential wealth transfer solutions from Merrill with access to trust and estate planning services and philanthropic solutions through Bank of America.

Focus On Retirement Planning

Over the last few decades, life expectancy has risen dramatically. Today’s retirees are not only living longer, they are living healthier longer. So a question to be answered is “What do you do with those extra years and how will you pay for them?”

No matter how much income you may have, putting a retirement strategy in place could be the most important thing—the first thing—you can do as you work with the team on your overall financial strategy. The team can help you determine your lifetime cash flow requirements, you can then focus on the other pieces of your financial life, including legacy and family needs, volunteering for charitable work, leisure time activities, acquisition of collectibles, and building a second home. Let’s talk about customizing and implementing a strategy to help you achieve a comfortable retirement.
