Wealth Management

At The Lopez Team, every member of our team is dedicated to helping people achieve their financial goals. We believe every client is entitled to the highest level of personalized service and care.

Welcome

We take the time to know clients as individuals and investors, and we value the relationships we develop. We will work together with clients to understand important financial goals, and then agree upon an investment approach designed to help them pursue each of their goals. We see ourselves as a financial ally for each succeeding generation.

Philosophy

We live in a world that's constantly changing. Markets can fluctuate frequently. Potential investment opportunities can arise daily. Regulations are amended. That's why we believe that you and your situation are the best starting points from which to help plan your financial future: where you are today, where you want to be tomorrow, and what you want to accomplish along the way. Because by understanding you and your priorities, we can more effectively offer our experience and resources and help you build a financial framework that is rooted in the unique complexities of your life.

Approach

We begin every relationship with a conversation, helping you identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether it's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing your financial approach to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, we start by listening to learn more about you and your family.

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 help you refine your investing preferences. Together, we can help customize your investment approach. Using an understanding of your priorities and investment personality as a foundation, we help you access the full breadth of resources from Bank of America’s banking products and services and Merrill’s investment insights to address all aspects of your financial 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

We have the experience, knowledge and tools to fully understand each client’s current financial situation and to help them create potential solutions designed to pursue their short- and long-term objectives. We offer a range of capabilities, including retirement income planning and potential wealth transfer solutions from Merrill and access to estate planning services and philanthropic solutions through Bank of America.

Investments

We believe that your investments should be a reflection of you — your life, your priorities, your goals. As your dedicated advisor we will get to know what matters most to you and help you define your goals. We use this understanding to help you build a customized financial strategy and offer consistent, personalized advice. Combined with professional management, you can stay on the right path towards pursuing your long-term objectives.
