I focus on addressing the investing and fiduciary responsibilities of institutions as well as the wealth management needs of individuals and families. I work closely with clients to determine their needs so that we can craft customized financial strategies to help them pursue their goals.
Tim Womack has been in the financial services industry since 1993 and joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2013. His focus is on providing customized investment strategies for executives, high net worth individuals and retirees. He and his team also work with business owners for whom they provide 401(K) and pension plans, succession strategies and insurance planning advice. Tim has built his service model on the importance of using sound judgement, objective advice, hard work and integrity in assisting his clients to work toward their financial goals.
He spent a good portion of his financial career on the front lines, trading in the derivative markets at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board Options Exchange. A successful profession of putting his own capital at risk across multiple asset classes gives Tim a unique perspective. His understanding of risk and it's role in asset allocation is critical in structuring optimal portfolios to suit his clients' needs.
An important aspect of Tim's process is before he makes a single recommendation he seeks to understand his clients' personal and financial circumstances in full. This knowledge enables him to develop a personal relationship with each individual, family, or business owner and create a strategy that is capable of evolving as each client's circumstances change. As a result, he recommends investment strategies that are simultaneously integrated and flexible, reflecting each client's long term goals, risk tolerance, time horizon, liquidity needs, income-tax considerations, and overall investment allocation.
Tim is a 1991 graduate of Michigan State University, with a B.S. in Finance and an emphasis on investments. He carries the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification awarded in the U.S. by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. and holds the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®) designation, awarded by the College for Financial Planning. Tim is also licensed as an agent for life and health insurance in the state of Illinois, as well as a State-Licensed Mortgage Loan Originator (NLMS ID: 1170710). He and wife, Betsy, live in Winnetka, Illinois with their two daughters, Reese and Molly
