Rick and his group create and manage investment strategies tailored to clients unique needs and goals. With today's complex economic environment, investors must be equipped to respond to market changes, price volatility, global and political events to help ensure that portfolios stay on track to meet their financial goals. At the same time investors must be ready to take advantage of opportunities and trends to help preserve and grow their wealth. We work closely with Attorneys and CPAs to help clients focus on their estate planning issues as well as tax minimization strategies.
Before any financial decisions are made, we consider your whole life, taking the time to fully understand who you are and what matters most to you and your family. With this intimate knowledge, we are able to help you define your objectives, work with you to develop appropriate strategies that draw upon the depth and strength of Merrill and Bank of America.
