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.

As a Merrill financial advisor, I strive to be the best in my field by assisting families and individuals in the development of long-term financial strategies. I help clients organize their personal and business finances so they can fulfill their dreams. My goal is to become a trusted resource to each client so that they may rely on me for financial advice and guidance in their pursuit of personal, financial and professional success. I do this by listening to them to fully understand their current situation and future objectives, as well as potential concerns. I then create customized investment strategies designed to help each client achieve their financial and life goals. I pride myself on following a disciplined wealth management process built on time-tested investment principles while allowing the flexibility to adapt to a rapidly changing economic climate. My service-focused approach, combined with my financial strategies, allow each client to concentrate on their priorities at each stage of life.

John Garcia joined Merrill as a Vice President and Senior Financial Advisor in 2009. Prior to joining Merrill, he was a Financial Advisor with Smith Barney. He holds a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor designation. He received a B.S. degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Purdue University in 1990 and a M.B.A. from Stanford University in 1992. John lives in Carmel, Indiana with his wife, Mary Kay, and their sons, Jeremy and Jason.
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.
