My personal mission is to build a relationship with the client to establish and achieve financial goals through objective management of investment assets. Using Merrill's Wealth Management Process I help clients determine long term financial goals and asset allocation strategies to pursue those goals. Liability management is also a critical component of the planning process. My success is not measured by performance statistics but rather by the client's success in achieving their goals.
The principles by which I do business: Integrity, Objectivity, Competence, Fairness, Confidentiality, Professionalism.
