Staley Dunn Wilson Wealth Management Group
Merrill Lynch Wealth Management

At The Staley Dunn Wilson Wealth Management Group, the depth and breadth of our offering demands a highly proactive and professional style of wealth management. Experience reminds us that “getting to know you well” is critical – before dollars and cents are ever discussed. 

While a previous advisor may have created a “set it and forget it” financial or retirement strategy for you – based solely on initial conversations – we think it’s wise to engage regularly with you and your spouse, as well as with your grown children and elderly parents (with your permission, of course). Our mission is to account for a range of factors and viewpoints when constructing a multi-generational strategy that can satisfy your long-term objectives.

It may also prove beneficial for us to coordinate with your CPA and attorney. Doing so allows us to align tax-minimization and estate planning strategies, as well as to reduce the time and cost of you managing multiple advisory relationships. When helpful, we are happy to host or attend meetings with your advisors, to help facilitate communications.

Who do we serve? Successful people we admire and, in many cases, meet socially for lunch or dinner. They include longtime business owners, entrepreneurs, medical professionals, engineers, tech and biotech executives, men and women who serve (and served) our country, others experiencing the divorce process, as well as retired couples and widows in 22 states.

On a personal note, it’s been our privilege to share our hearts with clients, our values, love of family, and special occasions – births, birthdays and weddings. We see our roles as “being there” for clients who trust us to be a caring and reliable resource. We believe they deserve nothing less.

At a Crossroads
About Us
What you can Expect

At The Staley Dunn Wilson Wealth Management Group, each of us brings distinctive strengths and skills to the table. Whether you're an accomplished business owner, a rising executive in a fast-growing company, or approaching a well-deserved retirement, we put our heads together on your behalf – and put a premium on communicating clearly, with full transparency.

Regardless of your age, stage, or financial circumstance, you can expect that we will:

• Be straightforward, sincere, and at all times, honest. If what you envision is not likely attainable, we will tell you. Conversely, if your objectives are quite easily within reach, we will outline what you likely can afford going forward – as long as you follow a carefully prescribed financial strategy.

• "Address your goals and look for holes" in your financial picture. Perhaps long-term care, life, key man, or other forms of insurance can help safeguard your wealth. In some cases, updating your beneficiaries is all that's needed.

• Follow a disciplined investment process that utilizes internal and external research, along with the firm's due diligence. Specifically, we aim to translate your goals, liquidity needs, risk tolerance and timeline into a cohesive and flexible financial strategy. As "asset-agnostic" investors with a healthy respect for investors with concentrated positions, we may suggest that your portfolio include a mix of equities, tax-free bonds, ETFs, and separately managed money to pursue steady growth and tax efficiency.

• Offer you access to credit and lending solutions from Bank of America, N.A.

• Align our efforts with those of your CPA and attorney to build tax-minimization and estate planning strategies. Our ages also allow us to work more easily with multiple generations of your family – a tremendous advantage when having heartfelt discussions with key stakeholders.
