Giving Back

The concept of “giving back” is what drives our personal and professional lives.  As financial advisors we’ve dedicated ourselves to helping individuals and families who may be facing current, unexpected or future financial challenges…and we’re particularly proud that we can help them live their legacies every day of their lives. We “give back” by combining our client-first people skills with our extensive wealth planning and management experience, helping clients to articulate and pursue their cherished lifestyle and retirement goals.

How else do we “give back?” We’re absolutely committed to dealing with client needs, wants, demands and complexities, and we make ourselves accessible virtually around the clock.  Once we get to know a client—and that extends to executives and entrepreneurs as well as individuals and family members—we strive to help that client understand the range of individualized strategies and solutions that may be employed at various stages of life.

Our focus extends to client education and relationships.  We consider ourselves guides and teachers who can help clients and their families—including the younger generation—understand the wealth planning process, how the equities and bond markets work, and the power of creating a customized blueprint to help preserve and grow wealth.  We offer you over 20 years of experience, along with the global investing resources of Merrill and access to the credit, lending and convenience of Bank of America.  Let’s have a conversation and talk about how we can best “give back” to you.

Our Philosophy

Being there when hard decisions have to be made…being there when the markets are moving this way and that…being there when a client wants to chat, have a meeting, take in a seminar or a special event…being there for a client who’s become an investor and a friend…being there defines a working, caring relationship with our entire team…being there means when you need the BBV team the most, we’ll be there.

Our financial philosophy is built around relationships…being there to help clients work through the wealth cycle of accumulation, preservation and distribution…being there to truly learn about each client and what each client is hoping to accomplish…being there to conduct reviews and recommend adjustments aimed at dealing with changing conditions and client circumstances…being there as the size, diversity and complexity of the challenges clients face increase…which is why we believe you need to engage financial advisors like us who work to better understand your needs and objectives. Our philosophy encompasses our entire, diversified client base, optimizing your portfolio so family members may be provided for during and after your lifetime.

Being there means staying in close contact with you, working to anticipate your financial needs…being there means making recommendations that align with your individual strategy…and being there means we are prepared to bring our dedicated philosophy—being there—to your assets in accordance with the values and principles you believe in.

We want to be there for you.

Working With Us

What are you accomplishing—or hope to accomplish—with your wealth?  Will you be able to support your children’s educational funding and aspirations?  Are you prepared to deal with the challenge of meeting both a lifestyle and retirement income strategy?  We believe that a key to growing and holding onto sustainable income begins with understanding the risks and rewards of creating a long-term plan that can help you meet your goals.  And that process begins with an uncompromising conversation, an activity we expect to eventually turn into a collaboration.

Our initial objective is to help you organize your financial life, whether your aim ranges from growth and wealth preservation to succession planning and wealth transfer.  We’ll collaborate with you by helping you build a framework that begins with our understanding your immediate family and financial situation.  With that information, combined with our ability to draw on industry-leading specialists, we have the tools that can help you identify and address personal and professional goals, manage risk, and reduce vulnerability to market fluctuations.

Fortunately, we are a team that will work tirelessly to help you pursue your goals through highly personalized wealth planning strategies.  Whether you want to build or expand a business, pursue a passion or create a legacy for your family and future generations, contact us at your convenience.  It helps to have the BBV team at your side.


Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from financial industry publications or directly from Bank of America Corporation. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
