Tom Cronin, CFP®, CRPC
Wealth Management Advisor

Tom’s primary goal is to serve as the central financial resource to individuals and families to help simplify, consolidate and plan their financial lives. After helping clients establish and prioritize goals and assigning the appropriate amount of risk, Tom leverages the broad resources of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management to structures client’s assets while keeping tax minimization in mind. Going forward, as client goals and market conditions change, Tom will help ensure the defined goals are tracking towards success. Common goals of Tom’s clients are retirement planning, retirement income management, education planning, cash management, liability management, estate planning services and insurance planning. With client’s permission, Tom will work with client’s CPA and estate planner to help ensure continuity with regard to income taxes and intergenerational wealth transferring.
