The Eckerline Wealth Management Group

Introduce us to a friend

We believe the most influential factor in successful wealth management isn't share price, dividend growth or even investment selection. Rather, it's your life, your family, your aspirations and your needs. These are the true drivers of the work we do, the basis of the strategies we build with you, and it is against these strategies that we measure our success.

Strategies to help you meet your financial objectives

There's something to be said for experience, particularly the depth and breadth of experience of The Eckerline Wealth Management Group. Individuals, families, businesses and foundations turn to us for insight and carefully considered recommendations about growing and preserving their wealth. Many clients have relied on us for 30 years, from one generation to the next.

We believe clients appreciate our sound advice and exceptional level of service as we work together to develop and execute wealth management strategies built to help meet their short- and long-term financial goals.

We understand that wealth management is unique for every client

We believe the most influential factors in successful wealth management aren't share price, dividend growth or even investment selection. Rather, it's your life, your family, your aspirations and your needs. These are the basis of the strategies I build with you, and it is against these strategies that we measure our success.

When an investment strategy is designed and recommended for your consideration, it comes only after rigorous investigation, vetting and scrutiny. We believe you deserve superior service, and we work tirelessly to earn your trust.

A wealth management process designed to deliver intelligent portfolio diversification and adaptability

The Eckerline Wealth Management Group gives you full access to Merrill Lynch's wealth of tools. Using them with you, I'll learn about your assets and liabilities. I'll help you prioritize your financial goals and objectives, then place them in the context of your timeline, liquidity needs and personal tolerance for risk. The end result: a wealth management strategy that is designed to help you move forward with confidence.

Investments are considered with your objectives in mind and are recommended only if I feel they have a place in your overall strategy. I will work with you to reexamine your wealth management strategy whenever you need me to—and find fresh solutions that help to meet your new requirements.

Capabilities

Our process is designed to deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond portfolio management. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America offers a way for clients to manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We can be a financial resource, helping clients with the process of transferring wealth to the younger generation.

Access to what you need, when you need it

MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.

  • Your advisor is never more than a click away within our site or mobile apps
  • Manage account security with our customizable security capabilities such as touch id, one time passcode, and other security features
  • Access to your complete financial life is available with My Financial Picture, Merrill Lynch’s asset aggregation tool

*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.

Let’s Have a Conversation

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.

Why Merrill Lynch?

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.
