We are committed to understanding your values and what you want to accomplish with your assets. We believe that one-on-one conversations help us get to know who you are and what you and your family want for your lives and allow us to concentrate on helping you pursue your life goals and plan for your legacy.
As Merrill financial advisors, we offer advice and guidance to help successful individuals and families pursue their financial goals. Our goals-based wealth management approach places the investor at the center of our focus, not the market. We start by listening carefully to understand your concerns, priorities, risk tolerance, time horizon, liquidity needs, goals and financial situation. From there, we work with you to develop a customized approach that connects your personal goals with potential financial solutions. Over time, we’ll meet with you to track progress and make adjustments, as needed.
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.
We believe that your investments should be a reflection of you — your life, your priorities, your goals. As your dedicated advisor we will get to know what matters most to you and help you define your goals. We use this understanding to help you build a customized financial strategy and offer consistent, personalized advice. Combined with professional management, you can stay on the right path towards pursuing your long-term objectives.
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.
