Whether considering family, home, work, or retirement you have goals and concerns that are important to you. The value you place on your life priorities is matched by desire to work with an advisory team who listens, patiently, to what matters most to you; one capable of using this understanding to provide the guidance and direction needed to assist you in achieving the most out of life.
The process begins with an understanding of your life priorities, risk tolerance, liquidity needs, financial resources, and goals. It progresses to a personalized wealth management plan designed to help you achieve the best life for you and your family; a plan that maintains the flexibility needed to adapt to the inevitable changes that occur in life.
It may be time for a new approach to the journey ahead – one based on what matters most to you and connects you with the advice, guidance and care you desire along the way. ARH Wealth Management can assist you along this path, providing the resources needed to help you connect to a better financial life.
We believe the best financial strategy 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, we will work with you to develop strategies designed to help address your financial needs.
We 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 financial strategies to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, we start by listening to learn more about you.
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.

Using an understanding of your priorities and investment personality as a foundation, we 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 life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.
Our 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 investment management. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, as well as banking, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We view ourselves as a financial resource, helping clients with strategies for transferring wealth to the younger generation.
We work primarily with high-net-worth individuals and families. We’ll begin by getting to know you as we explore the following seven priorities together:
Preserving the assets you’ve worked so hard to earn is a key component to maintaining your wealth. Rather than chasing large returns, we seek to achieve consistent performance over the long term.
Our approach to wealth management starts by mapping out your current financial position, and then helps you develop a foundation for preserving your assets. Our goal is to help you know where your money is, where it’s going and how to keep more of it working for you.
The strategies we recommend are driven by municipal bonds and focus on preserving, distributing and transferring your wealth to future generations. Based on our extensive experience in the municipal bond market, we believe these instruments can be an attractive way to diversify your portfolio, minimize your risk exposure and provide regular income. They are also tax efficient, since the interest they pay is exempt from federal and, in some cases, state and local income taxes.
As an employer, you understand the importance that a well-designed retirement program can play in helping you attract and retain highly talented employees, make the most of your business assets and assist your employees with their retirement savings goals.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve.

Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
