The Re Corr Bell Group has more than 70 years of combined experience offering integrated wealth management strategies to clients. Our team is based on a culture that puts clients' needs first. Lasting, meaningful and transparent relationships are the foundation of our business.
We believe many clients have chosen to remain with us for more than a decade because of our dedication and strong work ethic. Helping you reduce the complexity of your financial life and offering the highest standard of advice and guidance tailored to your objectives are the goals we set for ourselves each day. Our aim is to help you manage your likelihood of success, while simultaneously addressing your exposure to investment risk.
Our approach to wealth management takes a holistic view of where you are and where you want to be, seeking to gain the perspective necessary to help you coordinate every stage of your financial life.
Clients come first. Client education is at the heart of what we do. To us, it's not just about the process we use to help you pursue your goals; it's about the relationships we build as we work together.
Our primary goal is to understand and be responsive to your needs in order to offer individualized strategies and help you reduce the complexity that may be associated with managing your wealth.
We can assist with building or transferring wealth, preparing for a major liquidity event, such as selling a business, and creating a legacy by establishing your philanthropic strategies. We help you manage risk, not returns, by designing tactical strategies.
Long before we formulate any specific strategies, we put ourselves in your shoes in order to get to know you and understand what is important to you, your family and your business. This helps us to create—and to help you implement—a thoughtful wealth management strategy designed to address your needs and goals.
Throughout our relationship, we will keep you apprised of changing market conditions so that you can make informed decisions about investment risk and take advantage of domestic or global investment opportunities.
We believe in collaborating with your other professional advisors, as well as with investment specialists within Merrill, as needed, to provide support for tax- minimization strategies, insurance, and estate planning services, and through access to Bank of America for banking resources.
We can also help you with discretionary portfolio management. Chuck Re Corr and Geoffrey Bell are qualified Senior Portfolio Managers, who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing their own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. Senior Portfolio Managers are provided a high degree of flexibility in constructing portfolios and selecting securities. When servicing clients through the firm’s Investment Advisory Program, a Senior Portfolio Manager may manage his strategies on a discretionary basis. After meeting certain additional requirements, a Senior Portfolio Manager may use his own strategies to manage the assets of other Merrill Advisors’ clients.
For clients with a significant portion of their assets invested in their employer's business, diversification strategies can help them manage risk while maintaining appropriate levels of company stock.
We focus on senior executives, entrepreneurs and corporate directors who lead active, accomplished lives. Our aim is to be attentive without being intrusive. We also strive to be consistent and open to new ideas, thoughtful and relevant in our advice and unfailingly pleasant to work with over many years. We believe this approach has helped us develop strong relationships with clients, built on a foundation of professionalism and experience.
We serve a limited number of clients by design so that we can devote significant time and resources to each. To us, it is equally important to get to know you as it is to get to know about your finances.
Each member of our team has a distinct area of responsibility and experience, which helps us to serve you better. Our individual strengths and talents allow us to look at situations from various angles and viewpoints.
Members of The Re Corr Bell Group hold a number of industry designations that help us apply a broad perspective to your wealth management needs. More important than the intellectual strength and knowledge that this education represents, we have substantial real-world experience when it comes to developing and implementing practical strategies to help meet your needs.
Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from industry publications. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
