Supported by the global resources of Merrill, my 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


Thank you for visiting our website. As your Financial Advisor, we take the time to understand what’s important to you and to be available for you. When you call us a human being answers the phone. We respond promptly to emails. You have direct access to Jeff Salton and our team every day.  We continually look for ways to help you simplify your financial management and reach your goals.

Our clients entrust their financial future to us. Our training and experience allow us to accept this responsibility. Our personal integrity, competence, and service ethic enable us to retain it. Whether you are saving and investing for your future or for your children, trying to determine when and how you can retire, or concerned about the challenges of getting older such as potential health care costs, we have the knowledge and strategies to help you address your financial priorities.  Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.

Our Philosophy and Approach

Our Philosophy
We believe our clients deserve professional and objective advice that is:
• Personal and specific to your needs
• Developed using a team approach
• Delivered with timely and exceptional service
• Implemented with costs that are clear and fair 
We work hard every day to deliver this to every client.

Our Approach
We work to develop a deep understanding of your goals and concerns. With these in mind we use a consistent, five-step process to deliver the financial management support you deserve.
1. Help you determine your current financial position
2. Work with you to identify financial strategies that reflect your objectives, risk tolerance, time horizon, and possible need for cash.
3. Discuss and implement these strategies
4. Monitor our progress through regular communications and formal reviews.
5. Make adjustments when appropriate


Focus On Individuals, Families, and Small Businesses

I believe that true financial success can be achieved when you’re able to make investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. So whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or fund a child’s education, I start by getting to know you and how you feel about the following seven life priorities.

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals

Emphasis on Service

We strive to deliver old fashioned superior service while incorporating current methods and technologies:

  1. We treat you as we would want our own family to be treated.
  2. Fair, competitive, and clear pricing and fees. With regard to investment costs we are cost conscious but not cost driven.
  3. Timely response times. We believe if you are contacting us it is important. Phone calls are answered by the third ring whenever possible. If your call goes to voicemail it means we are truly not available. We reply to emails and voicemails within 24 hours, and will either satisfy your request or establish a delivery date.
  4. We work to be the Trusted Resource for your family. We want to help you with any and all significant financial decisions.
  5. We strive to be your family’s sole Financial Advisor. If you choose to use additional Financial Advisors we want to be your primary Advisor. 
  6. We will work with your Tax Advisors and Attorneys as requested and needed, but always ask for your authorization to do so.
  7. We work to expand our Practice methodically, first by expanding the breadth and depth of our relationship and services with you and your family, and second by selectively adding new clients. 
  8. We work efficiently and effectively, using Merrill tools, research, investment portfolios, and services that are appropriate for you and for us.
  9. When we make mistakes, and sometimes we do, we admit it and work hard to fix them quickly and with minimal impact on you.
