Welcome

Our mission, first and foremost, is to understand you and what matters most to you. To take the time to ask hard, smart questions and listen carefully, then understand in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today and where you’d like it to be tomorrow. We then help you design and implement a customized wealth management approach that helps you and your family pursue personal financial goals while helping manage investment risk. Our approach is about designing potential solutions to help turn goals into reality.

Individual Investors

We are committed to understanding your values and what you want to accomplish with your assets. 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 advice you need to help you simultaneously address fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Our relationship with you is one of mutual trust and respect. We offer access to the investing insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking convenience of Bank of America to help you pursue your goals. Our highly credentialed team members hold numerous external designations, including the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP®) certification, the Certified 401(k) Professional (C(k)P®), the Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA), and the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®) designations. Our disciplined investment process is designed to deliver a customized, yet consistent, top-tier client experience. Our integrity is demonstrated through our transparency. We welcome the opportunity to help protect your wealth, to continue to grow your assets in a smart, tax-efficient way, and to help ensure your investments are a reflection of your priorities.

Institutional Investors

We help you manage your business and personal finances as two parts of an integrated whole. We know that your life and your life’s work are linked, so we take the time to gain an in-depth understanding of your goals and your business in order to propose strategies that address your needs both at work and at home. We can provide access to the investing insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America to address your multifaceted financial needs. Whether you need financing and cash management, retirement and benefit plans, or business protection and succession planning, together, we’ll seek to achieve meaningful outcomes for you and your employees.

Our team focuses on helping businesses design and implement retirement benefit plans that allow both plan sponsors and employees to work toward accomplishing their financial goals. We are among a select group of Merrill financial advisors who are approved as Retirement Benefits Consultants. This title, which highlights our competence and experience in working with complex defined-contribution and defined-benefit needs, allows us to offer services to clients seeking an effective, lasting solution. We serve as a 3(21) Fiduciary and advise clients on their retirement plan investment line-up. In addition, our highly credentialed team members hold numerous external designations, including the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP®) certification, the Certified 401(k) Professional (C(k)P®), the Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA), and the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor® (CRPC®) designations. These involve rigorous training that our team members draw on in working with corporate executives and benefit plan sponsors and participants. Our corporate and nonprofit clients look to us to provide tested, well-thought-out strategies, improve retirement plan performance, document sound fiduciary process, and mitigate risk, all while delivering top-tier service.
