Evelyn Gasher began her career in the financial industry in 1979 and joined Merrill in January 2012.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and a Concentration in Investments from Eastern Michigan University, Evelyn also has the following Registration and Licenses; and Designation: FINRA Series 7, General Securities Representative; FINRA Series 66, Uniform Combined State Law; Life and Health Insurance Licenses; and the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM (CRPC®) designation - College for Financial Planning.
Evelyn brings incredible strength to the Financial Advisory process by having great listening skills, and truly caring about the relationship with the client. Evelyn understands the concerns that both women and men have for security, career advancement, balancing work and home life and the dilemma of budgeting and saving for the future.
Today's busy world leaves little time for people to concentrate on their financial goals. Respecting clients' time and at the same time giving each client the time they need to articulate their lifelong dreams and goals is very important to the process of meeting those goals on our team.
By speaking in plain, every day language, not industry jargon, Evelyn helps individuals, families and businesses to create a simple, clear, actionable plan, where both client and the advisor team are accountable to the plan. Educating clients about the plan, the process, and the investments to identify their unique goals is an important aspect of the process. Coaching clients about goal attainment, which may include Retirement Planning, Insurance Planning, College Planning, Credit and Lending, Wealth Transition Planning, and Divorce Planning is part of the process as well. Our team of professionals at both Merrill and Bank of America provides access to additional services in every aspect of a client’s life, for example, banking, and estate planning services.
Communication is extremely important. Checking alignment to goals periodically throughout the year, making changes as necessary, and meeting with clients for review regularly are an integral part of the process along the road to successful planning.
Our goal is to have you as a client, not only for the rest of your life, but to continue your legacy through your beneficiaries' lives as well. We believe the best way to do that is to provide you with the very best service by understanding your wants, your needs and your goals, and by helping you to create a plan that is unique to you and your family.
Evelyn resides with her two children, Mara and Lance, along with their dog, Leo, in North Barrington. She has been involved in many volunteer activities in and around Barrington, IL including Habitat for Humanity, Bataille Academie of the Danse, Sybaquay Girl Scouts, Bank of America Chicago Marathon, North Barrington School, Station Middle School and Barrington High School. Evelyn enjoys spending time with her family, also doing various sewing projects, often for community events, such as school plays, dance studio performances, the Boy Scouts and the children’s choir. Additionally, she enjoys bowling, skiing, traveling and enjoys walks in the beautiful forest preserves that can be found in Barrington area.
