Welcome

The Jennings Wohl Group team brings shared ideas and resources to you, offering a strategy that puts you, rather than the market, at the center of the planning process. Offering access to the global investing capabilities of Merrill and banking solutions from Bank of America, the team can assist you in identifying and prioritizing personal goals. That might include planning for and funding your children’s or grandchildren’s educations, helping ensure that income lasts in retirement, covering potential health care costs, and preserving wealth. We then help to develop a personalized financial strategy aligned with your goals.

Philosophy

The Jennings Wohl Group

Headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, the Jennings Wohl Group works with a select group of accomplished clients, streamlining the complexities that significant wealth can entail. The team advises clients throughout the United States, assisting multiple generations in growing, preserving and transferring wealth effectively. Keenly attuned to each client’s unique priorities and aspirations, the team’s advisors begin each relationship by distilling a family’s intent for its wealth, grounding its work in that singular vision. They then design and implement highly tailored programs that leverage the team’s distinctive skills and strengths, helping families realize their deeply-held goals.

Team founders Jennifer Jennings and Donny Wohl have spent their careers focused on the unique needs of families, providing them with insight into the opportunities and challenges that arise. The team advises a number of entrepreneurs, business owners and other professionals, advancing a holistic approach that smooths the intersection of personal and professional wealth. Adept in analyzing both sides of a client’s balance sheet, the team seeks to capitalize on efficiencies and remedy gaps, integrating the extensive resources of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America. Clients look to the team for timely information and in-depth analysis during critical crossroads in their financial lives. Moreover, the team helps to advance cohesive strategy and tactics across a client’s professional network. Working in concert with a client’s external tax and legal advisors, the team advances sound communication, timely collaboration and unified strategy. As advisors to an intimate circle, Jennifer and Donny also help discern and share best practices, enabling clients to benefit from the first-hand experiences of like-minded peers.

Capabilities

Merrill’s process is designed to help deliver a customized, comprehensive experience to assist you not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Providing you with access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help you manage all of the pieces of your financial life. Working one-on-one with a Merrill advisor means you have a single point of contact to help you with potential strategies for transferring wealth to the younger generation.

Focus On Individuals, Families and Small Businesses

We believe that financial success can be achieved when you’re able to make investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. Whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or funding a child’s education, the process begins by getting to know you and how you feel about the following:

  • 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

Success will be measured by the amount of progress you are making toward reaching your goals, making thoughtfully considered adjustments as events and conditions warrant.
