The Sanfield Wealth Management Team was established in 2015 when I joined Merrill Lynch as a Financial Advisor and partnered with Michael Sanfield, a Senior Vice President and Wealth Management Advisor at Merrill Lynch since the early 1980s. The Sanfield team resides in Farmington Hills, Michigan, and with a combined 40 years of experience, is dedicated to a defined process by which to work with each client – consisting of establishing objectives, developing a tailored strategy, and coming together regularly to review progress towards reaching primary goals and priorities. A wealth management approach that focuses on social responsibility, sustainability, and investing with impact is also at the cornerstone of our practice.
I recognize that determining how to make sound financial decisions and addressing wealth preservation concerns can be daunting. Arming our clients with the knowledge to make the best choices for their families and/or their business is our central concern. Our aim is to introduce simplicity and clarity, and to ensure we can help you achieve the best results with the resources you have. We make sure that we’re thinking about education funding, surprise expenses in retirement, tax implications, and transition of wealth to the next generation – so that you don’t have to.

*Neither Merrill Lynch nor its Financial Advisors provide tax, accounting or legal advice. Clients should review any planned financial transactions or arrangements that may have tax, accounting or legal implications with their personal professional advisors.
*Impact investing and/or Environmental Social Governance (ESG) investing has certain risks based on the fact that ESG criteria excludes securities of certain issuers for nonfinancial reasons and therefore, investors may forgo some market opportunities and the universe of investments available will be smaller.
Community involvement is an integral part of how I interact with clients and communities. I am enthusiastically involved with volunteering and fundraising for organizations such as ORT and other volunteer work.

*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. 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, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I 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.
