The Murphy Group is an ambitious and results driven group that seeks to create lasting, long term relationships and become the trusted advisor to the individuals and families we work with. We feel it is essential to take time to fully comprehend each client's unique situation. By understanding what each client wants to accomplish and why, we can work together to develop a personalized wealth management strategy designed to achieve their stated goals.
Our group utilizes a disciplined investment process to help clients preserve capital, grow wealth, and maintain their accustomed financial lifestyle. We are firm believers in the diversification across all asset classes. We develop a customized asset allocation for each client, based on their risk tolerance and time horizon. Our experience shows that a predetermined and sound investment process that replaces the natural emotions of fear and greed can be the strongest factor in long-term investment success. We define our success by enabling our clients to realize their personal aspirations.
Wealth Management services focus on Investment Management, backed by award winning research. In addition, we offer Retirement planning and forecasting, advice on philanthropic giving, and trust services.

*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. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management 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.
