We have built our team to respond to the needs of significant wealth. Our team operates as a small boutique-like group inside a global bank offering a suite of services, such as Wealth Planning, Investment Advisory Services and Personal Banking.

Our team is experienced in helping clients manage concentrated stock positions and deal with the challenges of important transition events such as retirement, inheritance or the sale of a business. With clients' permission, we work closely with their attorneys, accountants and other advisors to help coordinate their financial and legacy strategies.

*Banking Services are through Bank of America, N.A.

    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

    Our Commitment to Service

    Our team recognizes that significant wealth can entail pitfalls as well as privileges. We work closely with clients to foster sound stewardship across multiple generations. As proponents of client education and communication, we facilitate family meetings to discern and discuss collective goals as well as individual aspirations. Throughout the client relationship we are sensitive to each family’s dynamics, needs and values.

    We offer a suite of services grounded in unified strategy for long term wealth preservation:

    • Trust and estate planning services
    • Liquidity event planning: pre and post strategies
    • Banking and lending through Bank of America, N.A.
    • Discretionary investment management
    • Restricted and concentrated stock strategies
    • Tax minimization strategies
    • Philanthropy

    *Trust, fiduciary and investment management services, including assets managed by the Specialty Asset Management team, are provided by Bank of America, N.A., Member FDIC and wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America Corporation ("BofA Corp."), and its agents.


    Significant wealth requires customized strategies tailored to your unique goals and priorities. We believe in building lasting relationships with a limited number of clients, taking the time to understand your most important priorities for today, tomorrow and your long-term future. Working with a team of specialists, we draw on the resources and insights of a global financial institution to create strategies that reflect your aspirations for yourself and current and future generations of your family. We also believe that while significant wealth brings complex challenges, our experience, passion and perspectives can help you simplify your life.


    We strive to create an exceptional client experience, from wealth planning and strategy through investment management and service. Speak to us for a few minutes, and you’ll notice something different. We’re resolutely focused on a client’s goals and continually strive to exceed expectations. We’re keenly attuned to what matters to you – your objectives and needs, values and priorities. Our work ethic and commitment are the best testimonials to our focus on you, your family, and your business.

    In a financial world marked by change – in markets, regulations, opportunities, and challenges—we look to promote consistency, dispel confusion, and design a personalized path for each family. We have an instinct for solving problems, and look to continually refine and enhance what we do. We’re proud of the fact that we’re restless in our quest to help you, harnessing our team’s complementary skills and strengths.
