Taking care of your family and other people in your life
- Trust & Estate Services2
- Education Funding Strategies1
We’re a nationally recognized wealth management team based in Manchester, New Hampshire.* We work with clients in multiple regions of the United States, advising them at varied points in their personal and professional lives. Each has a unique story. Some are business owners contemplating a significant decision, such as an expansion, transfer, or sale. Others are executives, either actively working or retired. And still others have inherited their wealth.
Whatever a client’s path, we recognize that “wealth” means a lot more than a person’s balance sheet. We’re sensitive to the crossroads that people encounter in their financial lives: death of a loved one; marriage or divorce; launch, transfer, or sale of a business; retirement; or other significant event. We approach each of these transitions with the empathy and care they deserve, helping clients make informed decisions about their lives and legacies. Education is a cornerstone of our practice; we’re gratified to support multiple generations of client families in becoming more capable stewards of their finances.
We are a planning-based team, grounding our work in a detailed analysis of your circumstances. We believe strongly in the value of designing—and executing—a customized plan for you and your family. Our team has holds professional designations that attest to this emphasis:
Rachael Doyle is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) certificant, a designation awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc.
Sean Doyle holds the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM designation (CRPC®) and the Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA) designation.
We are honored that client referrals constitute our primary source of new relationships. We strive to earn that trust every day by focusing on each client’s long-term well-being. Our methodical and disciplined process can help you make measurable progress toward your goals.
We can help you move forward in the following areas:
We’re a team of committed communicators. You’ll hear from us often – not only when the markets are good, but in varied fiscal environments and conditions. We’ll establish a series of regular reviews so that you can stay apprised of where you are relative to your goals and timelines. We’ll also reach out to you—formally and informally—with the latest Merrill Lynch research, connecting you to the firm’s on-line resources, applications, and tools.
We also want to hear from you whenever you need us. If you have a concern, decision point, or simply some good news to share, we welcome the opportunity to connect. When you speak with any of us—from Advisors through Associates—you can count on us to grasp the nuances of your situation. We have processes in place to ensure robust coverage and in-depth personalization for your needs.
Your external tax and legal team are integral to your financial success, so we’ll also spearhead regular communication with these advisors. Together, we’ll collaborate on integrated tactics and strategies for legacy design, tax-efficient investments, business structuring, access to structured lending, or other initiatives, as appropriate.*
Finally, we recognize that communication within families can be challenging—particularly when it comes to finances. We’ll help you advance clear communication within and across generations so that you and the people you love are more confident in your ability to shape your future as you see it, mindful of your preferences and priorities.
Merrill Lynch is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from industry publications. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.

*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.
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.
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.
