Personalized advice from a dedicated financial advisor.
We get to know you and your family, your financial situation and what matters most to you.
Merrill believes the future is bullish, even in the most unpredictable of markets. To see you through uncertainty and help you to find opportunities, we invite you to check out the latest investment insights from our Chief Investment Office.
For more than three decades, Sharon Steiner and her team have been building enduring client relationships that are built on a foundation of integrity, accessibility, service, and transparency. Working with people from all walks of life, we strive to establish a personal connection with every generation of client who walks through our door, regardless of whether we’re the best fit or not. Our attention to detail is evident in each step of our wealth management process and our goal is to take the time to gain a clear understanding of their objectives and keep them on track with their goals.
Each of our team members possesses a different skill set that together creates the foundation for the informed wealth management advice and guidance we provide. We collaborate closely with one another. And, with your permission, we can coordinate with your other professional advisors, including your accountant and lawyer.
Our disciplined process accounts for your short- and long-term goals, risk tolerance and stage of life, while also keeping a watchful eye on today’s complex domestic and global markets. In our experience, that’s the best way to customize a well-thought-out, diversified portfolio flexible enough to meet your needs today and tomorrow.
We recognize that no two clients are the same. Our wealth management strategies offer a high degree of personalization and are built around your specific goals. The result is a wealth management plan that is as dynamic, vibrant, and enduring as the lifetime of achievement it represents. Things change, priorities shift, and new opportunities may be waiting just over the horizon. That’s why we review your progress relative to your defined objectives.
Simply put, you’ll always have someone to call when life throws unexpected changes your way, the markets get volatile, or when it’s time to reevaluate your goals.
At one time or another, we all face major turning points in our lives. Life comes with change, and we help individuals and multiple generations of families address the many financial matters they face, balancing today's needs with their goals of tomorrow. There will be homes to purchase, college educations to fund, and a retirement to save for.
With a true understanding of you and your needs – combined with a disciplined approach and a trained eye on the financial horizon – we can help you navigate through the cycles of life and the unpredictability of the markets, without losing focus on your priorities.
Speak with me for a few minutes and you'll notice something different. For more than three decades, my work has been my vocation and my passion. My longevity in the industry has provided me with a maturity and perspective that doesn't shrink during times of crisis. I'm skilled in circumventing pitfalls and remedying gaps that can occur over time.
To us, managing our clients' wealth is intensely personal. By connecting with you and asking the right questions such as, "What keeps you up at night?" we can get a better understanding of your story and what's important to you and your family.
Our approach to investing is grounded in an understanding of you. It all begins with a conversation. We take the time to get to know you — your kids' names, how hard you worked to get where you are and how you define success. We'll work together with you to understand your investment personality, prioritize your goals and build a financial approach that reflects your needs. We believe investors can benefit from our advice, access to the investment insights offered by Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank and the banking convenience of Bank of America. When it comes to your success, there’s only one financial approach that really matters — yours.
Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial approach we develop together to help you pursue what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help us get to know you - to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will help us provide you with additional insights and resources.
Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial approach.
Our process is designed to help deliver a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help clients manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We view ourselves as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.
Trust and fiduciary services are provided by Bank of America Private Bank, a division of Bank of America, N.A., Member FDIC, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America Corporation (“BofA Corp.”).
