The Gurien Group of Merrill Lynch draws on a vast array of knowledge and experience to assist you in meeting the myriad of financial challenges your family will encounter during your lifetime and legacy. Whether planning for life's events or identifying and implementing investment strategies, we will guide you and those you care about to a successful financial future.
Your financial future is made up of numerous components from the birth of a child through estate planning. All of life's events should not be viewed in the vacuum of each, but as a whole working together. In this manner you will always be adequately prepared and able to take advantage of the many changes that occur within your family, the financial markets and the greater world at large.
Utilizing the intellectual capital of Merrill and the top-ranked BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research*, we can help you make sense of change and seek to capitalize on it. Our strategic portfolio allocations are designed to help enhance the growth and preservation of your wealth in order to afford you and your loved ones enduring benefits.
Our in depth and sophisticated planning tools will help you view your overall financial situation and allow us to continually illustrate the changes you should make in order to realize your goals and objectives while maximizing investment and taxation efficiencies.
For most people securing a comfortable retirement is the most important financial challenge ahead of them. For some it’s legacy planning, for others it’s the worry over a disabled child or planning for college. Regardless of your circumstances, our process begins with a conversation about your goals and aspirations.
We then assist you in formulating specific goals and objectives in order to meet any concerns and fulfill your aspirations. Next we conduct a thorough cost and investment analysis of your current financial situation identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to tailor a recommended plan of action.
After the implementation of our strategy, we continually monitor your progress and the market to ensure challenges are overcome and goals are reached.
Imagine that the amount you need in retirement is akin to a bus ticket. If you go to Las Vegas with one hundred dollars and a bus ticket, would you cash in your bus ticket to try and make your one hundred dollars back? For most people, the answer to that question is no.
At the Gurien Group, we will help you determine how much you need for your "bus ticket." Once we identify how much you need, then we can assess if you are ahead, on target or behind your path to a comfortable retirement. That conclusion will allow us to assist you in properly allocating your investment assets.
Further, every financial decision you make in your life should be based on how you are doing for retirement. What type of mortgage, if any, the type of insurance, how to finance college costs, estate planning, etc. should all be assessed in the context of what you need in retirement. It’s not that you will not do all of these things, it’s about ensuring that you do them in a financially prudent manner that maximizes your after tax retirement income.
Finally, our team will construct for you an in-depth retirement analysis that will take into account not only your financial condition as it exists today, but future variables and events.
