Merrill Lynch
Wealth Management

The Andrews Group offers advice and guidance based on your goals and priorities—for yourself, your family and your business. We believe our wealth management philosophy is different, because we place the investor at the center of our focus, not the market. Using an understanding of your life as a foundation, our team will recommend appropriate financial strategies designed to help you pursue your goals, assist you as you track progress towards them and work with you to adjust your strategy over time as needed. When you succeed, we succeed.


Our approach to planning and investing begins with a conversation. We take the time to get to know you—your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are and how you define success. We’ll work together to understand your investment personality, prioritize your goals and build a financial strategy that reflects your needs. We believe investors can benefit from our advice, access to the investment insights offered by Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and the banking convenience of Bank of America. We are supported by the deep resources and intellectual capital of Merrill, and we help clients create customized asset allocation investment portfolios. Our approach places a premium on the preservation of invested capital, without losing sight of growth. While keeping our strategic outlook in mind, we try to take advantage of market inefficiencies in domestic and international equity and fixed income investments.


Working with us means working with advisors truly dedicated to your success. Our approach is simple, transparent and supported by thoughtful investment guidance.

We believe clients realize the full value of our relationship, including:

  • helping you make significant decisions
  • recognizing your life priorities and goals
  • understanding your investment personality
  • helping you prioritize and pursue goals
  • being transparent by making possibilities, fees and risks clear
  • taking steps to help you preserve income during a life challenge
  • educating the younger generation about investments and the markets

The Andrews Group Difference

We provide an elite service model based on highly communicative and proactive interactions with clients. Our goal is to deliver uncompromised service and financial acumen backed by a team with over a century of combined investment experience.

What Can Clients Expect From Us?


We believe investors can benefit from our advice, access to the investment insights offered by Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and the banking convenience of Bank of America. When it comes to your success, there’s only one financial strategy that really matters—yours.
Jerry Andrews, as a Senior Portfolio Manager, can help clients pursue their objectives by managing on a discretionary basis his own Personalized or Defined Strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. A Senior Portfolio Manager may make their strategies available to clients working with other Merrill Advisors. Potential clients should consult the Program Brochure before investing.

Trusting in our methodology and investment assessment, our first goal is to preserve value and secure growth for our clients. You’ve worked hard for your wealth and we are committed to helping your portfolios weather trying times as well as take advantage of potential appreciation.

Proactive communication is at the heart of our client relationship. We communicate in a timely manner, offer online Webex meetings and meet for detailed individual yearly reviews. We believe clients deserve to understand their portfolio positioning and changes on their behalf and understand the reasoning behind them.

Investing can align with your values

More and more people are interested in giving back to their communities, especially younger investors, and The Andrews Group can help. "Clients are now in a position where they can actually state their beliefs through their investing," says Jerry. Based on client needs and best interest, The Andrews Group can help you identify investing opportunities that may align with your values.

*There are no guaranteed results following completion of values based investing because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how values based investing can help address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
