Before joining Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2015, Robert spent 20 years being educated at what he calls “Wall Street University” – working for Goldman Sachs and RBC Capital Markets. At these firms, Robert “battled in the trenches” of equity trading floors, honing his problem-solving skills and developing a first-hand understanding of how the markets work.

Today, Robert assists a successful clientele that can benefit from his rich experience, extensive financial knowledge, and ability to help optimize their wealth in ways they find meaningful. His clients include financially astute individuals, as well as those not as well-versed – fellow financial professionals, active and retired business owners, corporate executives, physicians, attorneys and generations of their families in Florida, New York, New Jersey and ten other states.

Robert also serves a growing circle of divorced and widowed women. This is due in large part to his early life. Robert’s father passed away in 1991 and Robert’s mother was unable to find a trustworthy advisor who would suggest suitable investments. Recognizing that women who experience difficult life transitions may require an extra measure of care and objective guidance, Robert goes out of his way to explain how these clients can take “simple steps” and regain their financial footing.

Having a front-row seat on Wall Street to decades of market volatility and resilience, Robert reminds clients that “staying in the market and sticking with a disciplined strategy” is critical to achieving positive, long-term outcomes. He is also a strong proponent of clients having a single advisor who can consolidate their assets and deploy them in the most cost-efficient and tax-efficient manner.

Robert has a natural affinity for educating clients – especially when complex strategies demand straightforward explanations without industry jargon. In client discussions, he is proud to be transparent and proactive. Seeking ways to help clients use debt wisely, for example, he can provide access to residential, securities-based, marine and real estate lending through Bank of America, N.A. When helpful, he also coordinates with clients’ CPAs and attorneys to align tax-minimization and estate planning strategies. He leverages the resources and intellectual capital of both Bank of America and Merrill to assist his clients and their families in creating personalized financial solutions based upon their risk tolerance, time horizon, liquidity needs, overall investment goals and the associated costs. His process entails a disciplined approach to help small-to-middle market business owners with sell-side advisory solutions and post-sale wealth planning.

Robert has earned the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, CRPC® designation, the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®, CDFA® certification, the Retirement Income Certified Professional® (RICP®), and the Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) designations. He helps business owners who are going through transitional phases in their lives.

Originally from the New York/New Jersey area, Robert lives in Palm City with his wife, Corinne, and their son and daughter. In addition to family time, Robert is passionate about playing Pickleball, golf, coaching baseball, and giving back to the community. He serves on the advisory board and is chair for the Boys & Girls Club of Martin County Character Counts! (a collaborative of community organizations, schools, businesses and individual citizens committed to the development and enhancement of individual and community character).

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


Every relationship begins 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.


Merrill’s process is designed to help deliver a customized, comprehensive experience to assist you not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Providing you with access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help you manage all of the pieces of your financial life. Working one-on-one with a Merrill advisor means you have a single point of contact to help you with potential strategies for transferring wealth to the younger generation.

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. Whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or funding a child’s education, the process begins by getting to know you and how you feel about the following:

  • 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

Success will be measured by the amount of progress you are making toward reaching your goals, making thoughtfully considered adjustments as events and conditions warrant.

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.


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. Calculating how to manage 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? It all starts with a plan intended to help you manage, grow, and preserve your wealth today, while also considering the impact it can have for years to come. With access to the investment insights of Merrill and banking solutions from Bank of America, I will work with you to develop an approach designed to help address your financial needs.


My mission, first and foremost, is to understand you and what matters most to you. Armed with that information I can ask thoughtful questions -- listening carefully, then understanding in detail where your wealth stands today and where you’d like it to be tomorrow. I help you design and implement a personalized plan intended to help you and your family pursue financial goals while helping manage investment risk. My approach is to focus on potential solutions that can help turn goals into reality.

Staying on Track

We understand that both your life and the financial markets can change over time. By checking in to discuss changes in your life and revisiting your financial approach, our goal is to help you stay on track to achieve what's most important to you.
