September 30, 2016.

Advisors considered for the “America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors: State-by-State” ranking have a minimum of seven years of financial
services experience and have been employed at their current firm for at least one year. Quantitative and qualitative measures used to
determine the advisor rankings include: client assets, return on assets, client satisfaction/retention, compliance records, and community
involvement, among others. Barron’s does not receive compensation from advisors, participating firms and their affiliates, or the media in
exchange for rankings. Barron’s is a trademark of Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. The ranking or ratings shown here may

Forbes’ “Best-in-State Wealth Advisors” ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due
diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively, a major component of a ranking algorithm that includes: client retention,
industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management
and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and
advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC and not representative
nor indicative of any one client’s experience, future performance, or investment outcome. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receives
compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking. Forbes is a trademark of Forbes Media LLC. All rights reserved. The ranking

*A Senior Portfolio Manager can help clients pursue their objectives by managing on a discretionary basis his own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. A Senior Portfolio Manager may make their strategies available to clients working with other Merrill Advisors.
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.
