Taking care of your family and other people in your life

Our mission is to understand you and what matters most to you. 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 and implement a customized wealth management approach that helps you and your family pursue your personal financial goals while helping manage investment risk. Our wealth management approach is about using wealth to help turn goals into reality.
Ours is not a typical approach, because we do not serve “typical” clients. They include successful, well-known individuals – from athletes and coaches, to leaders in finance and technology.
A hallmark of our approach is the close nature of the relationships we have with clients. We recognize clients’ voices when they call, as well as their comfort with risk. We know what keeps clients up at night and what gets them up each morning. Above all, we know that both communication and performance matter to clients, and both are why we believe they choose us.
Many clients come to us looking for a trusted advisor whom they have read or heard about. Despite their wealth, many don’t have a financial strategy or estate plan. We look to connect the dots in clients’ complex financial lives with highly customized, tax-efficient strategies, in concert with their other advisors. We also aim to bring both spouses to the table, to agree on goals and concerns.
By staying in frequent contact, we can respond to clients’ urgent needs as well as shifts in what they would like to accomplish long term. Being proactive also reflects our commitment – to educate clients on where they stand, what they own, and the impact of decisions on intergenerational wealth.
Merrill Lynch Wealth Management allows us to deliver on a philosophy we’ve honed for decades: Specifically, we believe that building tax efficient, research intensive portfolios is what serves our clients' best interests over the long run. Our team's deep knowledge – coupled with our exhaustive personal due diligence and that of the firm – help drive theses risk-managed strategies and portfolios that we build for clients. Often, we look beyond equities, bonds and ETFs to include alternative investments, when appropriate (private equity and real estate, for example).
• Additionally, the tailored lending capabilities of Bank of America, N.A. allow us to provide access to residential, securities-based and commercial lending – including highly sophisticated structured lending for our clients.
• We also coordinate with clients’ CPAs and attorneys, and with Bank of America Private Bank (formerly U.S. Trust) specialists – to align tax minimization and estate planning strategies that are individually tailored.
Superior wealth management takes extraordinary attention to detail, hard work, and customization for each client. These three elements are at the heart of everything we do, and if they are important to you, then we look forward to working for you and your family.

It is no coincidence that our multi-generational team serves many generations of affluent client families. We have a tradition of helping ambitious individuals make financial decisions that enhance the lifestyles and legacies of their children and grandchildren.
Specifically, we serve professional athletes, coaches and team owners, business owners and corporate executives (in health care, biotech, technology, and finance), physicians, retired couples, and widowed and divorced individuals. It’s worth noting that fellow financial professionals (private equity and hedge fund executives, in particular) respect our ability to help them manage their wealth.
While clients have taken distinct paths to their achievements, virtually all have come our way through word of mouth – which we believe reflects our experience, energy, and commitment to people who place their trust in us.
Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from industry publications. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
