Committed to serving as a trusted resource for families and businesses since 2006, Ethan is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner and Wealth Management Advisor. He works diligently to integrate his clients' insurance, tax, investment, retirement and benefits, and estate planning goals into his ongoing advice and guidance. Purposeful and intentional financial planning, he has found, is one of the most important conversations a household can have. Stewardship is at the core of Ethan's professional purpose. Prior to joining Merrill he worked as an appraiser and dealer of fine stringed instruments in Boston and New York, directing the sales of historically-important rare violins of 18th Century Italy. He has handled thousands of instruments on behalf of musicians and collectors and in 2011 led the auction of a world-record setting violin, the 'Lady Blunt' Stradivarius of 1721. He currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Violin Society of America (VSA). Ethan earned his Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Science in Finance (MSF) from Northeastern University and lives in Kennebunk, ME with his family. He warmly invites your inquiries and looks forward to assisting with what you value most.
