Merrill Lynch
Wealth Management

We understand that your life evolves and that your financial strategies need to keep pace.

Goals change, family situations evolve or new commitments arise. We believe client relationships are about teamwork—we and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management's highly regarded resources work together to help you pursue your goals.

Every client is different. Some have a clear financial strategy and we will help them implement it. Sometimes our process requires looking far enough forward so that clients can plan for future generations. Or it could mean taking into account extraordinary income needed to pursue a passion or hobby in retirement. Our goal is to clearly understand your many financial needs. It's not just about money. It's about plans, hopes, dreams and goals.

Building effective strategies that reflect your individual needs.

The Eckart Wealth Management Group's philosophy is built on three basic tenets: Experience. In-depth strategies. Manage for risk. Our objective is to be a highly responsive source of financial guidance. In-depth conversations and an extensive, early review of individual financial circumstances yield a strong understanding of your needs, both financial and personal. We use this knowledge to help you preserve your wealth, offering you individualized strategies drawn from our carefully focused skills and wealth management process.

We believe in the team approach, for everyone who works with you. With your permission, we will work collaboratively with other professionals who are involved in your financial matters, such as accountants and estate attorneys, so that their work and ours may be effectively integrated. Our goal is for the many parts of a client's financial life to be working well together, helping to implement a seamless, flexible financial strategy.

Long-term goals should not be undermined by market volatility.

At Eckart Wealth Management Group, we favor disciplined, diversified and well thought-out financial strategies rather than following trends that go in and out of favor. We believe this allows clients to spend more time enjoying their wealth and less time worrying about short-term market conditions.

We apply our thoughtful approach to the strategies we create with you, striving for your optimal portfolio that blends growth and value, as well as global diversification. Working with Merrill Lynch Wealth Management's broad, deep platform, we can offer you a myriad of investment products and services designed to address your financial needs in accordance with your investment objectives, short- and long-term goals, risk tolerance, liquidity needs and time horizon.
