John joined Merrill Lynch in Chicago Illinois in 1997. Since then John has worked with clients creating and maintaining wealth management strategies to help them pursue their short and long term financial goals.
John's approach to wealth management is consultative, and he is committed to excellence. He takes time to listen to and review client's financial situation, preferences and goals. He offers recommendations for asset allocations designed to accurately reflect each client's income and growth goals. John follows up with discussions covering a wide range of opportunites, including investments, retirement, estate planning services and philanthropy.
John is a qualified Portfolio Manager. A Portfolio Manager can help clients pursue their objectives by managing on a discretionary basis his own prsonalized or defined srategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. John holds the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor℠ or CRPC® designation.
In addition to his attention to investing, John can offer clients access to a Wealth Management Lending Officer from Bank of America, N.A. who can provide strategic and personalized banking guidance focused on your needs. Working together, your Financial Advisor team and Lending Officer can draw upon an expansive array of lending solutions designed to fit into your overall financial strategy and help you pursue your financial objectives. The Wealth Management Lending Officer does not offer investment advice, nor make recommendations on investment products.
John received a bachelor of science from Illinois Institute of Technology. After a brief career as an engineer he started his career with Merrill Lynch as a Financial Advisor. John stays connected to his engineering background by being a member of the President's Counsel at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.
