Meet the Team

Supported by the global resources of Merrill, our team is comprised of talented and experienced individuals committed to building strong client relationships based on trust and personalized service.

Where do we begin? It starts with you.

At Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, your financial advisor focuses on the things you care about most- family, goals and priorities - even as they change over the years.

Understanding Your Life

Everyone Has a Dream

Our advice and guidance is designed to help you pursue your dream. With more than 40 years of collective experience in the financial services industry, The Oslund Wealth Management Group offers customized strategies that are designed to help you preserve and build wealth, maintain your lifestyle in retirement and leave a lasting legacy for the next generation.

We believe a wealth management process that is tailored to your needs starts with listening to you. Using the knowledge we gain, we strive to implement your individualized strategy with the highest level of service and ethical standards.

We believe that our experience collaborating with attorneys and accountants is particularly useful in working with multiple generations within families. In addition, our experience extends to investment management for non-profit and college foundations, corporations and businesses, and executive compensation plans.

Insightful Strategies, Resolute Action

For us, effective wealth management is a holistic process. We take a wider view, looking at your investment positions and your full financial picture – from real estate you may own to retirement accounts, from philanthropic organizations you support to trusts.

We strongly believe that by understanding your many assets, not just those held with Merrill, and making sure they work together, we can help you to build a wealth management strategy designed to carry you forward with intelligence and confidence.

We also believe that when insightful strategies and resolute action work together, they create a powerful formula for growing, preserving and transferring wealth. That is why, before any investments are made, we spend the time necessary to help you build your wealth management strategy. And when the time comes to help you implement and manage it, we are there to offer consistency, advice and guidance and professionalism every step of the way.

We Start with Your Goals and a Clear Strategy

Our wealth management process begins with a summary of your financial picture, your objectives and associated time horizons, your risk tolerance, liquidity needs and more. We ask questions designed to help you articulate where you see yourself and your family in 5, 10, even 15 years from now.

As we look at your financial picture holistically, it may become necessary—with your permission—to call upon other professional advisors, such as your attorney and accountant. We can interact with you and your advisors to help make sure the many aspects of your financial life are working seamlessly together to your advantage.

When working with foundations, the IPS - Investment Policy Statement - is a key component for investment recommendations and implementation. Our wealth management group regularly reviews the IPS, investment asset allocation, performance and goals with the foundation board or finance committee.

We're Dedicated to Helping You Stay on Track

With your strategy defined, we mine key research sources to take advantage of strong insights and innovative investment ideas. We place a high value on our ability to drill down, evaluate and tailor strategies for you to consider. While our dedication and standards are meant to inspire trust, we go even further to reaffirm it, with an ongoing process to track performance.

Even though we focus on long-term performance, the market consistently offers opportunities to readjust and realign your portfolio for growth or wealth preservation. We can identify and offer advice and guidance about these opportunities to help you keep moving toward your goals.

We offer you access to the investing insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience of Bank of America to help you pursue your goals. We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
