Attaining significant wealth in a lifetime is a noteworthy accomplishment. We understand and are guided by the principle that the preservation and management of that wealth require an equally exceptional standard of care and attention in the ever changing economic environment.
At the Winter Stein Potvin Hokin Group we know that our clients have needs that go beyond asset management. We are listeners and problem solvers. Moreover we selectively draw upon the global resources and intellectual capital of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management to devise specific strategies for the unique priorities of each client.
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.
Clients at various stages in their lives count on us to help them find ways to pursue their financial and life goals, including:
Using the broad investing resources of Merrill, we can also assist with potential solutions for income management, education funding, retirement income planning, and guidance for executives with concentrated stock positions, traditional and alternative investments, wealth transfer and estate planning services. And with your permission we can also work closely with your other professionals, such as attorneys, accountants and specialists, to help you pursue your goals.
DISCLOSURE: Some or all alternative investments may not be appropriate for certain investors. Certain alternative investments carry significant risk and are not subject to the same regulatory oversight as mutual funds and other appropriate investments. For these reasons, access to alternative investments may be limited to investors who are designated as sophisticated, high-net-worth investors.
We offer clients a breadth of potential solutions, premier customer service and financial tools based on their unique circumstances.
No matter what your goals may be, we begin by helping you define and prioritize your financial goals based on the following seven areas:
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 help us provide you with additional insights and resources.
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.
