Tim Hampton believes in the value of holistic strategies – to address what clients see as their goals for retirement, saving for private high schools and private colleges, second homes and, most importantly, to deliver the quality of life they want in the years to come. To align multiple aspects of clients’ financial lives, Tim draws upon the Firm’s investment, banking and trust specialists for residential and securities-based lending, as well as estate planning strategies.
Tim is an active member of his community whose dedication to support worthy causes extends to his role as a seasoned financial advisor for foundations, charitable endeavors and other non-profit organizations nationwide – as well as to individuals and families. Formerly an executive recruiter, Tim enjoys helping clients however he can. Frequently, he helps clients (and their families) with job networking, and reviewing their resumes.
Having launched his financial services career in 1999, Tim joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2008. He holds the CFP® certification, awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. and the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM (CRPC®) designation from the College of Financial Planning.
Tim is also a qualified Portfolio Manager who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing his own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. When servicing clients through the firm’s Investment Advisory Program, Tim may manage his strategies on a discretionary basis.
Tim graduated Magna Cum Laude from Saint Louis University with an Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, majoring in Finance. Later, he earned his Master’s in Business Administration from Washington University in St. Louis.
Passionate about giving back to organizations that provide meaningful experiences, Tim served as Assistant District Commissioner in the Boy Scouts of America. An Eagle Scout himself, Tim was awarded the Silver Beaver Award by the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America “for distinguished service to youth” in 2008. Tim was also a member of Rotary and a Past President of the De Smet High School Men's Club.
As avid theater goers (to Broadway, London and back home in St. Louis), Tim and his wife, Elizabeth, actively support The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. Tim has served on its Executive Committee, as Chairman of its planned giving committee, and on its Board of Directors. Tim and Elizabeth are longtime residents of St. Louis who’ve raised two sons there. One teaches unemployed and underemployed individuals to start a small business in Washington, D.C., while the other is Mark, who is also a partner of The Hampton Group.
