Our mission is to understand you and your priorities. To take the time, to ask hard, smart questions and to listen carefully, then to understand, in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today, and where you'd like it to be tomorrow. We help you design, implement and periodically monitor a customized wealth management strategy that helps you and your family pursue your personal financial goals while managing investment risk. Our wealth management approach is about using wealth to help turn goals into reality.
Our extensive experience helps us understand the financial pressures you face--not just challenges you're dealing with in the present, but those that may determine your retirement and lifestyle dreams in the future, as well.
It all starts with you. We have clients--in many cases, multi-generational--who have relied on our advice and guidance for years. We feel we are most effective at helping affluent clients to understand the complex financial landscape they may confront during various market cycles, and we take the time to mentor them through the goals-based wealth management process.
Even though we have assisted clients in similar situations, we realize that your particular circumstances are unique. We probe to gauge what you may think and feel about investing. We get to know you as an individual--perhaps more so than other professionals with whom you work--which offers us additional insight into your decision making and risk/reward profile.
Goals-based wealth management is a way that we can help you move beyond stocks and bonds indices so you can evaluate portfolio performance and focus on what matters to you on a personal level. In other words, we can offer an investment approach for you that's customized to address your unique set of concerns and goals, such as a child's education, a new home or income in retirement.
In addition to working with individuals and families, Jason Adamic and Kirk Wolford have earned the internal designation of Retirement Benefits Consultant, reflecting their deep experience working with corporate retirement plans of all sizes, including plans with assets in excess of $50 million. In addition, Kirk is credentialed as a Global Institutional Consultant within the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Institutional Consulting Group.

We have the experience and knowledge to assist clients with the intricacies and challenges of running a retirement program and to assist employees with key education and information.

*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. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management 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, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we 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 Wealth Management 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.
Getting to know you is our primary goal.
Drawing from our experience and the best thinking of Merrill, we will build a strategy that reflects your unique needs, priorities and financial situation.
We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
