William A. Gallagher, Senior Financial Advisor...on benefit plans
"For employers, offering benefit plans is more complex than ever. We are an experienced team, dedicated to supporting employers as they face the challenges of expanding regulations, due diligence and plan compliance. For employees, we believe that financial wellness and retirement preparedness require personal engagement with a seasoned financial advisor to assist in identifying their long-term goals and guiding them in developing strategies to pursue them. We believe positive outcomes do not happen by chance; rather, they are a result of working effectively with plan sponsors and employees alike."
The Adolph & Gallagher Group works with sponsors of 401(k) and 403(b) retirement benefit plans, defined benefit pension plans, and qualified and non-qualified equity compensation plans of all types.
William A. Gallagher, Senior Financial Advisor...on customized wealth management
"Our view is that wealth management extends beyond transactions and beating market benchmarks. It encompasses a comprehensive approach to creating a strategy that is supported by a diversified portfolio of investments, to pursue the financial goals and life goals that are most important to you. By and large, we focus on helping clients to develop investment strategies that focus on the relationship between risk reduction and investment outcomes as they relate to clients' goals. They have worked hard to create wealth, and they want to preserve what they have and grow it sensibly over time."
Effective wealth management is built around a process that is focused on your concerns and goals.
The approach we decide on together is aligned with your personal circumstances as well as your unique attitude toward investing, risk tolerance, time horizon and liquidity needs.
The process and approach are designed to make the very most of your resources.

MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.
*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
As Merrill Lynch financial advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
We put you first, every day.
