The team was created in 2012 with the sole intent of providing the intimacy and personalized attention of a family office with that of the global resources and support of one of the world’s largest financial institutions. Our 7 member team is dedicated to providing unparalleled service to the select group of families we serve.


Our Approach

We have developed and refined a goals-based wealth management process that evolves over time, aligned with our client’s personal and professional lives. This disciplined, agenda-driven approach offers forward-looking advice and adds predictability to an otherwise uncertain world.

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance we leverage proprietary Merrill Lynch Wealth Management tools, such as the Investment Personality Assessment. It assists us in getting to know you better as an investor and to potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. We also build our financial strategies around your goals, utilizing the firm’s Seven Life Priorities framework to identify and prioritize what’s important to you and your family.

We have access to a wide variety of Specialists, each with a unique skill-set that complements our immediate team members and highlights many of the unique aspects of our thoughtful planning process:
