Hanson Wong has been in the financial services industry since 2000 and joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2019. Prior to joining Merrill, he worked at a top global multi-strategy hedge fund on a small team of seven investment professionals managing a multi-billion dollar hedged long/short equity portfolio, and before that, he worked on a Morningstar 5-Star rated mutual fund, analyzing stocks and maintaining ultra high-net worth individuals’ separately managed accounts. Earlier in his career, he managed private equity distributions serving the largest US public pension fund, worked in equity research / investment banking, and underwrote commercial credit lending. Between that, he spent a year at a start-up, serving as the director of finance and administration for an online boutique retail company.

He draws on the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America to help his clients meet financial challenges — and take advantage of potential financial opportunities. Passionate about delivering excellent service, Hanson works to help individuals drive progress, make more informed financial decisions and save time.
