Merrill Lynch
Wealth Management

We combine warmth and approachability with professionalism, helping you move forward toward your goals, thoughtfully, systematically, and confidently. As a multi-generational team, we offer personalized guidance grounded in transparency, to help you make informed decisions about your life and wealth.


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.

* Sean Doyle has earned national recognition from Forbes as the top Financial Advisor in New Hampshire in its “Best In-State Wealth Advisors” list for 2018.  Forbes recognized Sean as one of the top Financial Advisors in New Hampshire for 2019-2022 (*Published annually Jan – April.

Barron’s recognized Sean from 2016 - 2022 on the Barron's “America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors: State by State.” list(*Published annually in March. Rankings based on data as of September 30 of prior year). Please see his bio for more detail.

A Thorough and Deliberate Approach

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 Counselor (CRPC) designation and the Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA) designation.

Skilled listeners, we begin each relationship by learning about your unique background, preferences, goals, and aspirations. We then craft a long-term strategic plan that pinpoints your objectives and lays out a clear path to pursue those aims. Planning is not an end to itself, of course. We pride ourselves on our implementation. We’ve structured our team with clear roles and responsibilities; each of us is committed to helping you make steady and resolute progress toward meaningful milestones. Together, we leverage our collective strengths and talents to help you streamline complexity, resolve uncertainty, and restore precious free time so that you focus on the passions and pursuits you most value.

Committed to Your Long-Term Success

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:

  • Understand your financial picture with more clarity
  • Develop diversified portfolio strategies
  • Enact a disciplined investment process
  • Design more consistent cash flow
  • Lay out a timetable for key financial decisions, such as retirement
  • Finance higher education for your children or grandchildren
  • Preserve your assets through insurance strategies
  • Facilitate access to lending solutions through Bank of America, N.A., to purchase a home or business, or to restructure existing debt
  • Prepare for the transfer or sale a family business

Our Financial Advisors, Sean and Rachael Doyle, lean on more than 30 years of collective financial services experience. They’ve helped clients tackle a broad spectrum of questions and can likely relay the insights and best practices they’ve gained from first-hand experience. Our client service team members—Annette Crnilovic, Chelsea Mayfield, Jake McPherson and Dawn Kepple—are exceptional in their dedication and diligence. Our goal is to “wow” you, delivering an experience that exceeds your expectations.

Helping You Stay Informed

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 Wealth Management 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 help 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.
