If you're like most of the people we work with at The Maynard Group, you're among a select few whose resources give you the independence to create the kind of life you want. We can recommend strategies to help you pursue your goals, assist you in tracking your progress toward them and work with you to adjust your investment strategy, if needed.
A thorough understanding of your lifestyle and goals
We help families from Hawaii to Florida manage their wealth. Our disciplined process looks beyond the numbers to focus on how you live now and how you want to shape your life over the next 5, 10 or 20 years. We try to find ways to help you maximize your income and assist you in developing portfolios that target your objectives while seeking to manage risk. Our team can also help you in preparing your finances for life in retirement.
An overarching structure that evolves with you
The families we serve have varied business and personal interests. We help them develop strategies for monetizing equity and partnership stakes, with business sales and purchases, and with insurance and wealth transfer. We also offer access to Bank of America's credit and lending services on nonliquid assets such as aircraft and boats, real estate, fine art and antiques.
Our goal is to create an integrated, efficient framework that adapts to changes in your life and outlook, as well as to the cycles of the financial markets.
The Maynard Group is privileged to work with an extraordinary cross-section of clients. They include families who own one or more closely held businesses, leading executives of public and private companies and medical professionals. It's a group whose interests and aspirations are as varied and dynamic as they are.
We have witnessed firsthand the hard work and dedication they have put into their achievements, and we understand the kind of legacy they want to leave. We're ready with advice, guidance and strategies to help these families enjoy the lives they've created today and construct a foundation for their children and grandchildren to build on tomorrow.
A focus on the next generation
One of the first things we do in meetings with new clients is to map out their family tree. This aids us in understanding the people we are seeking to serve and their particular circumstances, so that we can help design strategies customized to their individual situation. Often, these families are already collaborating in creating and distributing wealth and opportunity. We can help bring together the different facets of their financial lives in a cohesive wealth management structure that includes estate and retirement planning services. In coordination with their other trusted legal and tax advisors, we can explore structures such as family trusts, partnerships and corporations and gifting strategies.
We encourage family meetings to foster an open and honest dialogue about financial matters. Our team also strives to work directly with individual members of the next generation to help prepare them for the eventual transfer of wealth and introduce them to resources for pursuing their own goals and ideals.
We're proud of our investing skills, but one of the best investments we know isn't found on any exchange. We believe that time spent with organizations such as Angel Flight and Big Brothers Big Sisters offers rewards that go far beyond money.
These rewards come from the delight of a little boy attending his first professional basketball game and the gratitude of a mother whose child has been whisked from our plane to receive medical care. Whether we're on Main Street or Wall Street, our goal is to use our talents and resources to serve individuals and our community.
Strategies for people committed to doing good
Many of the people we serve also devote time and resources to charitable pursuits. We can help them explore philanthropic strategies. A key part of our job is assisting them with structuring their portfolios in ways that may help them engage in the work they love.
A highly trained, experienced team dedicated to helping you

Families usually come to us seeking guidance for many different facets of their financial lives. We strive to help them understand that, as their outlook evolves, so too must their wealth management approach. We think you'll find our team is adept at recommending strategies and services for the way you live today—and how you want to live tomorrow.

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.
