The more we understand your motivations, the better equipped we will be to assist you in managing your wealth.

Our advice and guidance can help bring simplicity and clarity to your financial life. Utilizing our team members' more than 73 years of collective experience, we can help you craft a wealth management strategy designed to balance your present income needs with your distinct set of goals and financial objectives.

Helping You Capture Wealth's Opportunities

Our team believes successful wealth management comes from examining how the various elements of your financial life work together. Key factors to consider may include the retirement lifestyle you envision, how you would like your wealth to impact your family, your tolerance for risk, liquidity needs, time horizon—and, of course, your personal goals. What arises from this process is a tailored financial strategy that encompasses your life as well as your finances. Our wealth management process is continuous, evolving with you as your needs and goals change. The process breaks down what may seem complex into simple, understandable terms. It places you at the center of our efforts—helping to preserve, grow and distribute your wealth based on your unique objectives.

We believe successful long-term investing is goal oriented and strategy driven. Our process helps us understand your needs and be proactive throughout our relationship. The Norman & Young Group follows a disciplined, five-step protocol to gather information about you, your family and your life; sharpen your financial vision; and organize a thoughtful strategy that ultimately helps us to suggest investments with the potential to fulfill your needs while pursuing your goals.

A Philosophy Grounded in Quality Client Service

Our team strives to provide clients with the highest level of service—dedicating the time, energy and experience to help them pursue their goals. We research strategic and tactical investment themes both within and beyond the bounds of Merrill, analyzing data that can help you make informed decisions about allocation targets and other aspects of your wealth management efforts.

We believe our high-level strategic thinking is matched only by the quality of our service. Our focus is to understand in depth what you value most in life—your family, business or legacy—so you can focus on enjoying the wealth you've created and live the life you envision. 


Working With Affluent Individuals and Families

The Norman & Young Group works with affluent individuals and families in need of wealth management advice and guidance. It is not uncommon for our team to work with family members spanning as many as three generations. We get to know and help educate the next generation about their future wealth. Later, when they need to make their own financial decisions, they can turn to us—a team they have a relationship with and one that can help them carry on the family legacy.


Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from industry publications. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
