Merrill Lynch Wealth Management

As Merrill Senior Financial Advisors, our goal is to build long-term relationships with clients. We do this by working to best understand financial wants, wishes, desires and aspirations. We help them identify what is most important to them, develop goals and using our Personal Wealth Analysis tool, create a wealth management plan to help achieve the goals. We update the plan every year or more often depending on the life changes they experience. We use a number of financial strategies to provide for the different stages of their lives. From growth strategies to estate planning strategies, we help with them with every step.

Our areas of emphasis are Retirement Planning, Retirement Income Strategies, Investment Management and developing financial strategies for families with Special Needs Children. We focus on finding retirement income strategies to help plan for, generate and manage the income clients need to realize a comfortable retirement.

About Us

Our team focuses on helping individuals, families, and businesses achieve complex goals covering all aspects of their financial lives. Our robust planning process helps our clients leverage their time, resources, and knowledge to live fuller lives and create better experiences. In short, we love working with normal people, who strive for an abnormal level of success.

We maintain a disciplined, rules-based, data driven investment process and submit that wealth is created purposefully and over time. We construct strategies utilizing research and insights from Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, and a network of other resources at our disposal. Regardless of where a potential solution originates, we see it as our professional responsibility to bring the very best ideas to our clients. These strategies can often address retirement planning, concentrated stock positions, risk management, and tax minimization. Our team also assist clients with advanced estate planning services, wealth transfer, and philanthropy. We're here to help you maximize your financial opportunities at each transition point in life.
