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

The Hunt Group is a boutique-like investment team within Merrill Lynch Wealth Management delivering distinctive service and investment strategies to a select group of high net worth individuals and business leaders. Through Merrill’s unprecedented platform and our professional relationships, we provide advice and guidance that we believe is unparalleled in depth. We strive to maintain complete objectivity in all of our recommendations, as our goal is to help ensure each client’s individual success.  We are confident you will find that our services are delivered on a customized basis within a personal relationship that will last throughout your lifetime.

Our philosophy is simple: successful wealth management is built on a strategy that focuses on the big picture. By taking a long term view, and establishing deep and valued relationships with our clients, we can provide a substantial level of customized and personalized service and give our clients back their most limited commodity, time.

I focus on delivering a comprehensive approach to managing wealth that begins with listening to a client’s needs and helping to ensure every strategy is grounded in understanding what each client wants to achieve. My access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and banking convenience of Bank of America helps address the various aspects of clients’ financial lives. I am driven by my passion for delivering excellent service and helping clients pursue their goals.

I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

Philosophy

I believe the best financial approach is the one that helps you pursue your goals. That's why, from the start, we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you. Worried about managing future health care expenses? College on the horizon? Considering the sale of a business or purchase of a home? Preparing to pass your wealth to future generations? With access to the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America, I will work with you to develop an approach designed to help address your financial needs.

Approach

I begin every relationship with a conversation, helping you identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether it's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing your financial approach to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, I start by listening to learn more about you and your family.

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help me get to know you better as an investor and help you refine your investing preferences. Together, I can help customize your investment approach. Using an understanding of your priorities and investment personality as a foundation, I help you access the full breadth of resources from Bank of America’s banking products and services and Merrill’s investment insights to address all aspects of your financial life.

Capabilities

My  process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. My ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. I view myself as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.

Focus On Individuals and Families

I can offer advice and guidance designed to assist you in making investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals.  So whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or fund a child’s education, I’ll start by getting to know you and how you feel about the following seven life priorities.:

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals

 

Your approach to investing

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial approach we develop together to help you pursue what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help us get to know you - to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will give you a sense of the full assessment and help us provide you with additional insights and resources.

Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial approach.
