Wealth Management

Understanding your life priorities is an important part of how we work with the clients we serve. It’s not just about markets and returns, it’s about what matters most to you. We welcome the opportunity to show you how we can work together to create a financial approach designed around you, your goals and your aspirations.

Welcome

At The Miranda Wealth Management Group, we utilize a holistic approach to investing built on a foundation of integrity, attention and hard work. By taking the time to listen, we are able to obtain a total picture of each client’s financial situation and desires. With the client’s permission, we work closely and communicate regularly with their tax advisors and attorneys to be sure we are all working together in the client’s best interest. Therefore, our strategies are highly customized for each and every relationship with a commitment to excellence. We are focused on developing strategies and recommendations for our high net worth individuals, their families, and their businesses to help them meet short-term and long-term financial goals.

We offer recommendations that accurately reflect each client’s income and growth expectation, while further exploring areas that cover a wide range of opportunities including investment management, retirement analysis, insurance, trust and estate planning services, as well as lending - all of which are supported by the vast resources of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Bank of America Private Bank (formerly U.S. Trust), and Bank of America, N.A. By combining our experience with that of leading economists, research analysts and investment managers, we are able to help clients achieve a balance designed to build wealth while reducing risk and volatility.

Philosophy

We believe the best financial approach is the one that helps you pursue your goals. That's why, from the start, we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you. Worried about managing future health care expenses? College on the horizon? Considering the sale of a business or purchase of a home? Preparing to pass your wealth to future generations? With access to the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America, we will work with you to develop an approach designed to help address your financial needs.

Approach

We begin every relationship with a conversation, helping you identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether it's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing your financial approach to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, we start by listening to learn more about you and your family.

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and help you refine your investing preferences. Together, we can help customize your investment approach. Using an understanding of your priorities and investment personality as a foundation, we help you access the full breadth of resources from Bank of America’s banking products and services and Merrill’s investment insights to address all aspects of your financial life.

Capabilities

Our process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We view ourselves as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.

Focus On Individuals and Families

We can offer advice and guidance designed to assist you in making 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, We’ll 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

 

Your approach to investing

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial approach we develop together to help you pursue what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help us get to know you - to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will give you a sense of the full assessment and help us provide you with additional insights and resources.

Understanding your goals and priorities

Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial approach.
