Benjamin Alsop firmly believes that planning your financial future is the single most important thing that you can do for yourself and your family. As a Merrill financial advisor, he helps people articulate and prioritize their financial goals, then helps them create and implement a financial strategy that works for them. As a former scientist, Benjamin understands the value of analytics and the role it plays in making smart and informed decisions. Utilizing our chief investment office, he recommends personalized investment portfolios that are designed to mitigate risks and promote the highest probability of success in meeting his client’s goals and aspirations.
To Ben, there is nothing like the comfort of having a trusted advisor on your side, and thus it is always his top priority to build a connection with all of his clients and to truly understand their lives, their concerns, and their aspirations, and to provide them with confidence as they move through life's various stages. Ben believes this is what separates him from others in this industry, and he would invite you to come see for yourself. Ben holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland as well as M.S and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Minnesota. Ben and his wife, along with their three amazing children and cohort of furry and fine-feathered friends (one dog, two cats, and ten chickens) reside in Wildwood, MO.
Ben follows the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities he serves. This drives his interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
