Our Wealth Management Tenets

Unite a Team of Industry Professionals
We believe sophisticated support demands extensive industry knowledge. So, every team member brings a different skill set and educational background. We also collaborate to support clients’ full financial needs throughout their lives.

Commit to Ongoing Education
Keeping up with an evolving global economy is essential. Our team members hold numerous industry certifications and designations, so we’re prepared to guide clients today—and for generations to come.

Provide Access to Many Resources
From retirement strategies to IPO support and beyond, we can provide clients with access to specialists and resources for their varied goals, no matter how complex.

Deliver a Well-Defined Process
Setting and exceeding expectations is our hallmark of effective wealth management and client service. From day one, we help clients know what to expect from us and how we’ll support them through every market environment, financial milestone, and life event.

 

Philosophy

It’s important to plan for your financial future, which means getting more than investment advice. We believe you may find value in a one-on-one relationship with someone dedicated to knowing who you are and what you want to accomplish. Someone who knows your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are, how you define a successful life and how you view investing. Our commitment is centered in helping clients achieve their goals by making their needs and wants a priority. Our advice and financial approach are guided by what’s important to you, and our success is defined by your satisfaction over time.

Approach

We believe an effective approach to wealth management requires working closely with you to help identify and define your goals.

Our  job is to first understand what matters most to you. We will work together to create a financial approach that reflects your investment personality and is built around your life priorities.

Our approach is to help you pursue your goals by providing customized service and potential investment solutions. Whether you are focused on building, preserving or transferring wealth we are committed to helping you address your financial objectives at every stage of your life.

Understanding your goals and priorities

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.

Capabilities

Our years of experience through multiple market fluctuations have helped us understand that we can help you pursue your goals by being consistent in our approach. We’ll work with you to build a personalized investment approach that helps you pursue your goals – no matter the financial environment. We’ll take into account your objectives, time horizon and liquidity needs and, perhaps most important, your sensitivity to risk and investment personality.

Focus On Individuals and Families

We can offer advice and guidance designed to assist you in making investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals.  So whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or fund a child’s education, We’ll start by getting to know you and how you feel about the following seven life priorities.:

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals

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