There's something to be said for experience, particularly the depth and breadth of experience of The Boyd Group. Our entire team shares a common goal: to help you pursue your personal goals, such as planning for and funding your childrens' educations, helping to ensure that your money lasts in retirement, planning for your potential health care costs, and managing the transfer of wealth to the next generation. Many clients have relied on us for more than 34 years, from one generation to the next.
Clients, we believe, have come to appreciate our professional advice and guidance, as we strive for exceptional level of service, and we work together to develop and execute wealth management strategies built to help them pursue their short- and long-term financial goals.
The Boyd Group gives you full access to Merrill Lynch's wide range of tools. Using them with you, we'll learn about your assets and liabilities. We'll help you prioritize your financial goals and objectives, then place them in the context of your time line, liquidity needs and personal tolerance for risk. The end result: a wealth management strategy that is designed to help you move forward with clarity.
Investments are considered with your objectives in mind and are recommended only if we feel they have a place in your overall strategy. This team will work with you to reexamine your wealth management strategy whenever you need us to—and find fresh strategies that help to meet your new requirements.
It’s important to plan for your financial future, which means getting more than investment advice. We believe you may find value in a one-on-one relationship with someone dedicated to knowing who you are and what you want to accomplish. Someone who knows your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are, how you define a successful life and how you view investing. Our commitment is centered in helping clients achieve their goals by making their needs and wants a priority. Our advice and strategies are guided by what’s important to you, and our success is defined by your satisfaction over time.
We begin every relationship with a conversation, helping you to identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether that's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing financial strategies that help you pursue your passions, or simply providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, we start by listening to learn more about you. We'll examine several components – your life priorities, investment personality and financial situation – to help create an actionable strategy with personalized advice and measurable goals. We'll be here with you every step of the way, helping you track progress to your goals and working with you to adjust your investment strategy over time.
We offer clients a breadth of strategies, premier customer service and financial tools based on their unique circumstances. No matter what your goals may be, we begin by defining and prioritizing your financial goals based on the following seven areas:

*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.
There is no substitute for a one-on-one relationship with a Merrill Lynch financial advisor committed to your needs. 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.
