Whatever your personal goals may be, I will work together with you, one-on-one, to develop a personalized financial strategy designed to help you pursue your long-term goals.

Managing significant wealth is a considerable responsibility— especially because the stakes are high for your family and your future. Sometimes the demands of this task can make it difficult to concentrate on what matters most to you: pursuing personal and family aspirations, exploring new opportunities, and living the life you have always envisioned. When families reach a certain level of wealth and complexity, traditional advisory services may no longer be sufficient.

With a passion for life and obsession with excellence Albert sees himself as a guardian of tradition helping families design what their futures look like to them. My team and I focus on helping highly successful families manage the full spectrum of their financial affairs through tailored multi-generational strategies and cutting-edge resources from Merrill. Money management, retirement planning, estate planning services, insurance, tax minimization strategies, business planning succession—we will bring together all of these elements into a cohesive and integrated wealth management plan that will help you enhance and preserve your wealth while enjoying the lifestyle it affords.

Albert & his wife Julie live in Fort Myers, FL with their 2 dogs Ellie and Walter. Albert is an avid skier who also enjoys boating & fishing with his friends and families around the islands of SWFL.

I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

About Me

My mission, first and foremost, is to understand you and what matters most to you. Armed with that information I can ask thoughtful questions -- listening carefully, then understanding in detail where your wealth stands today and where you'd like it to be tomorrow. I help you design and implement a personalized plan intended to help you and your family pursue financial goals while helping manage investment risk. My approach is to focus on potential solutions that can help turn goals into reality.
