By combining a personalized atmosphere with the vast resources of a global financial services company, the Broughton Group is positioned to help you pursue your most important financial objectives for the meaningful life you desire.
As a client, you should expect to be treated like family. That’s why we tailor wealth strategies to your individual needs. With our diligent goals-discovery process, deep knowledge of financial markets and rigorous investment strategies, we can address a range of family circumstances and financial goals. And our relationship with Merrill Lynch provides access to broad service offerings and deep pools of talent that can help us enhance your experience with us.
By focusing on a select group of individuals, families and businesses, we’re better able to support our singular focus: Putting clients’ interests first.
Our multidisciplinary financial team has a deep and diverse set of complementary skills. Together, these capabilities can help you address your most important financial concerns—including portfolio management, retirement planning, and access to charitable giving and wealth transfer through Bank of America.
To help you evaluate your unique circumstances, we follow a three-stage wealth management process. The process starts when you first come to the Broughton Group, and continues throughout the course of our relationship.
We are active investment managers who use a value-oriented, quantitative approach to dynamically diversify portfolios across a range of asset classes.
In other words, we constantly evaluate global markets’ changing opportunities and challenges, so we can move in and out of investments as needed to help address your needs.
This approach underlies our five proprietary investment portfolios, which we can match to a range of objectives, risk tolerances, time horizons and liquidity needs.
We base our portfolios on our team’s decades of accumulated knowledge, as well as the latest market research, and seek to balance growth and income potential without taking on unnecessary risk.
Our goal is to exceed clients’ expectations. By focusing our diverse skills on a select group of individuals, families and businesses, we believe we can best assist them in multiple aspects of their financial lives—whether that means helping develop strategies to address retirement planning and education funding goals, or coordinating with Merrill Lynch specialists to provide trust and estate planning services.
Beyond our team’s wealth management capabilities, we can provide clients access to banking services through Bank of America, including:
• Home financing
• Securities-based financing
• Wealth transfer and charitable giving
Maintaining a smaller client base supports our goal of addressing clients’ diverse needs, while delivering family-like care and attention to every individual we serve. We can meet with you however it’s most convenient and comfortable—whether that’s at our office, in your own home, online or over the phone. We travel to see many of our clients in person.
Merrill Lynch is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from industry publications. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.

Your life and goals change. We can help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.
MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.
*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, 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 financial 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.
