Merrill Lynch Wealth Management

Significant wealth brings opportunity—and responsibility. After all, fostering your assets while upholding your values and preserving your family dynamics is serious work. At the Morris Sevier Morello Wealth Management Group, we understand the unique circumstances affluent families and institutions face, so we dedicate our entire practice to supporting you.  Selecting a new advisory team is a major decision, and we honor this trust by fully committing to each client’s lifelong needs. When you work with The Morris Sevier Morello Group, we want you to expect a different level of support, guidance, and service than you have ever experienced when managing your wealth.  We call our approach “Executive Wealth Management,” because we believe it is similar in essence to the service you find with executive healthcare: 

  • Proactive and outcome focused
  • High-touch and hands-on
  • Modern and discerning

Just as executive healthcare aims to advance health with the latest science and personalized care, our goal is to provide the same style of support for clients.  You have worked hard to create your wealth—and you deserve a team who will work equally hard to grow and preserve it.
