Meet the Team

Supported by the global resources of Merrill, our team is comprised of talented and experienced individuals committed to building strong client relationships based on trust and personalized service.

Where do we begin? It starts with you.

At Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, your financial advisor focuses on the things you care about most- family, goals and priorities - even as they change over the years.

Understanding Your Life

Welcome Message

At The Rogers Knapp Group, we work with affluent families, corporate executives, business owners, pre-retirees and retirees to help them identify and pursue their unique financial goals. We believe every client deserves to feel confident about the financial decisions they make for themselves, their careers, and their families. We strive to provide the resources and perspectives investors need to pursue their objectives with care while identifying appropriate levels of risk—whatever their investment horizon.

Because our team supports clients with wide-ranging wealth management, we frequently find they seek our advice about a variety of important decisions, in addition to managing their investments, such as:

• Developing retirement income strategies
• Reallocating 401(k)s at work
• Preparing to buy or sell a business
• Navigating the sale or purchase of a second home
• Helping children understand their family’s relationship with money


• Customized Support

Our team believes clients deserve individualized attention, and by limiting the number of clients with whom we work, we are able to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships. We know each client personally and what he or she aspires to accomplish, and we also work closely with them to address the specific financial factors affecting their lives.

• Collaborative Professional Team

Just as we like to collaborate with clients in pursuit of their goals, we also enjoy collaborating as a professional team. Our entire team works together with each client so that we can provide a more well-rounded, deeper level of service and enhance our ability to offer prompt, timely, and knowledgeable guidance.|

• Focus on Risk-Minimization Strategies

We help clients identify risks and develop and implement strategies intended to reduce their exposure—and we focus our skills and support around this foundational tenet. We work closely with clients to help them identify how different market cycles affect their ability to pursue their objectives, while identifying
and implementing asset allocation strategies that align with their unique financial goals and investment horizon, at every life stage.


It’s important to plan for your financial future, which means getting more than investment advice. We believe you may find value in a one-on-one relationship with someone dedicated to knowing who you are and what you want to accomplish. Someone who knows your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are, how you define a successful life and how you view investing. Our commitment is centered in helping clients achieve their goals by making their needs and wants a priority. Our advice and financial approach are guided by what’s important to you, and our success is defined by your satisfaction over time.


Working with us means working with advisors truly dedicated to your success. Our approach is simple, transparent and supported by thoughtful investment guidance.

We believe clients realize the full value of our relationship, including:

  • helping you make significant decisions
  • recognizing your life priorities and goals
  • understanding your investment personality
  • helping you prioritize and pursue goals
  • being transparent by making possibilities, fees and risks clear
  • taking steps to help you preserve income during a life challenge
  • educating the younger generation about investments and the markets
