Where do we begin? It starts with you.

At Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, your financial advisor focuses on the things you care about most- family, goals and priorities - even as they change over the years.

Understanding Your Life

Welcome

Our mission is to understand you and your priorities. To take the time, to ask hard, smart questions and to listen carefully, then to understand, in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today, and where you'd like it to be tomorrow. We help you design, implement and periodically monitor a customized wealth management strategy that helps you and your family pursue your personal financial goals while managing investment risk. Our wealth management approach is about using wealth to help turn goals into reality.

Strategies Suited to Your Situation
Wealth management is an ongoing process. It begins with a conversation to discuss your goals and gain a clear understanding of your needs. Staying focused on your situation and financial objectives throughout our relationship enables us to help you create a wealth management strategy that makes sense. Based on your financial goals, we will propose investment strategies suited to your situation.

We are with you every step of the way and proactively stay in touch with you to periodically review your financial strategy, give you market updates and find out what's changed in your life since we last spoke. That allows us to build upon your initial strategy and suggest ways to rebalance your portfolio as necessary. We want to help you understand when and where your money is coming from, where it is going and how to keep it working for you.

We take the time to develop relationships with the members of your family. Our goal is for them to have the continuity of a trusted resource they can turn to for advice and guidance about wealth management.
Dedication, Experience and Education
Our team members have combined experience with Merrill Lynch and Bank of America of more than 100 years. In addition, we hold a number of professional credentials, which we believe helps us gain a broad perspective on the wealth management needs of both individuals and institutions.

Coming from various financial disciplines, each member of The LMT Wealth Management Group contributes knowledge, individual strengths and talents, so we can look at a situation from various angles and viewpoints. Although typically you will have a primary contact on our team, we work together and combine our experience to offer you financial advice and guidance.

As a Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Institutional Consultant, Karl has an understanding of the institutional markets and the complex needs of institutions. He can apply elements of this high-level experience in his work for the individual investor through advice and guidance on wealth management challenges, such as developing portfolio strategies and philanthropic giving strategies.

Our relationship managers and Client Associates are committed to offering attentive, high-value-added service. Striving to provide the highest degree of personalized attention, they support the team in all phases of client relationship management.

Serving Individuals and Institutions
Today's increased life expectancies mean that your assets will have to last longer than those of previous generations of retirees. We can help you devise strategies designed to preserve your wealth throughout your retirement and maintain it for your heirs.

Your family's financial future may depend not only on how you manage your wealth today but also on how it is managed, enhanced and preserved in the future. A well-coordinated wealth transfer strategy may help you preserve what you have achieved and see that your personal wishes are fulfilled.

For families with philanthropic desires, we help coordinate trusts, family foundations and gifting strategies with your other advisors, such as your estate attorney and tax professional. When appropriate, we can offer access to other specialists within Merrill Lynch.

While we work actively with individual clients, our team also has a depth of experience helping institutional clients prepare strategies designed to address a different set of challenges. As a Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Institutional Consultant, Karl can provide institutional clients with access to a broad spectrum of capabilities, including investment consulting and philanthropic and nonprofit management, as well as retirement and benefit planning services. He can also help these clients create or revise distribution policies and develop fund-raising strategies. In addition, he can provide guidance and support for fiduciary oversight and governance. The strategies he recommends are designed to help institutions move toward their financial objectives responsibly and efficiently, while paying attention to detail and carefully managing their risk.

    *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. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management 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.

    Let’s Have a Conversation

    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.

    Why Merrill Lynch?

    As Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
