Rohit Sharma, CFP®, CRPC®
First Vice President
Wealth Management Advisor
Rohit’s global perspective on managing clients’ wealth and expectations has been influenced in great part by his life experiences.
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Rohit and his family moved to New Delhi, India when he was six years old. In high school, Rohit moved to Singapore and in 2001 to Columbus. After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Marketing from the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University, Rohit joined Merrill in 2005.
A lifetime learner and strong proponent of educating clients, Rohit finds that clients who play a role in developing their strategies are far more likely to follow a wise financial course. Rohit holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., as well as the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®) designation.
In a rapidly changing global economy and domestic tax environment, Rohit characterizes his approach as disciplined and holistic – weighing each client’s objectives with the realities of market dynamics, to create consistent returns that can fulfill stated goals.
Outside of the office, Rohit is a “loud and proud” fan of Buckeyes football and basketball. He and his wife, Shipra, reside in Columbus, where she is an Interior Designer with a decade of experience.
