Glenn Schunkewitz is a Senior Vice President and Senior Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in Chester, New Jersey. For more than 40 years, he has been serving the wealth management needs of business owners, corporate executives, and families with generational wealth. Empathetic and accessible, he is also particularly sensitive to the needs of women, many of whom will take full responsibility for their finances at some point in their lives—as sole earners, after divorce, or as widows.

His extensive industry experience has given Glenn a clear understanding of how changing markets can affect portfolio outcomes. A proponent of long-term financial planning, he strives to filter out the noise and help clients remove emotions from the process so that they can make smart decisions based on their goals. Glenn draws on his knowledge, together with his background in municipal bonds to help clients preserve and transfer their wealth to the next generation. Throughout his process, he helps educate clients about their investments in clear, understandable language.

Looking beyond his clients’ investable assets, Glenn seeks to understand their life goals and what they hope to achieve with their wealth, including a comfortable retirement income, saving for college, building a business, ensuring financial security for successive generations, or caring for an aging parent or family member.

Another notable strength is Glenn’s ability to complement and work seamlessly with his clients’ circle of advisors to help integrate the various aspects of their financial lives—such as tax management, trust, and wealth transfer planning—into a seamless whole.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in accounting and business from Albright College, Glenn began his financial services career in 1982 in municipal bond marketing and sales at Merrill’s Liberty One office in New York City. In 1984 he transitioned to Prudential Bache Securities where he spent 17 years before moving to UBS in 2001. Glenn returned to Merrill® in 2015.

A native of Randolph, New Jersey, Glenn and his wife, Yvonne, currently reside in Mendham. When he is not caring for his father and brother, Glenn spends time with a local car club and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, and spending weekends working in his garden at his country home. A former equestrian, his hobbies also center around traveling and enjoying restaurants and fine wines with family and friends.
