THE SANDLIN GROUP
The Sandlin Group has a singular, straightforward mission: to provide tailored, goals based wealth management guidance to our clients. We work with select individuals, families and professional organizations to manage their hard-earned wealth using carefully constructed, thoughtful investment strategies.
We are a team of experienced professionals who are committed to building enduring relationships, not simply gathering clients. Our approach is patient and personal, our experience is deep, and our focus on our clients’ long-term goals is unwavering. We look to the markets to present opportunities and strive to identify sustainable investment trends. We take a long term approach and look to invest in companies that we can benefit from over multi-year periods.
So much of your future relies on our ability to understand you and the things that are important in your life. That is why our first priority is to spend time listening to you and learning about your goals and aspirations. We will work to create an essential resource for you that facilitates ongoing dialog so that we can use our firm's global expertise and experience to develop personalized strategies for your individual needs and goals. From sharing our ideas and experience to anticipating your changing needs, we are dedicated to helping you reach your goals.
DANIEL T. SANDLIN, CFP®
Senior Vice President
Wealth Management Advisor
Dan believes that “success is not determined by statistical measures of performance, but rather, by our clients’ ability to achieve their goals.” For more than fifteen years, he has provided financial guidance and served the needs of prosperous families in the metropolitan Chicago area and beyond.
Dan applies seven distinct wealth management disciplines in his process that help preserve and grow clients’ wealth, consistent with their goals and objectives. He and his team take time to personally discuss each client’s specific situation and offer advice based on their familiarity and understanding of their client’s individual situation. Their relationships are distinguished by openness and clarity of goals. His team processes, service commitment, and client satisfaction has differentiated the team from their peers by instilling confidence in, building trust with, and demonstrating integrity to their clients
Prior to joining Merrill Lynch in 2012, Dan had been a financial advisor with Smith Barney since 2000. He graduated from University of Colorado at Boulder, with a B.S. degree in Finance, as well as attended Semester at Sea, a ship-board program for global study abroad, sponsored by the University of Virginia.
Holding a strong belief in giving back, Dan serves on the board for The Metropolitan Family Services, contributing services needed to strengthen families and communities in the Chicagoland area. In his free time, he enjoys golfing and spending time in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. He currently resides in Chicago and is an active member at the Union League Club.

Your life and goals change. We can help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.
MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.
*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I 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.
As Merrill Lynch financial advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
We put you first, every day.
