A Commitment to Service
Merrill Lynch’s Private Banking and Investment Group is committed to providing a select group of wealthy clients with highly personalized one-on-one service. When you work with us, our knowledgeable, rigorously trained Private Wealth Advisors will gain a deep understanding of your goals, help you develop a multigenerational wealth strategy, help you monitor its success and update your strategy as needed. We are committed to providing you access to the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America, and we will continue to invest in client tools and new technology to enhance your overall experience as you and your private wealth advisor pursue what’s most important to you.
We believe that your unique goals should be at the center of all of your financial decisions and form the foundation of your financial strategy. Because significant wealth requires sophisticated, highly customized strategies, we believe in building lasting relationships with a limited number of clients, taking the time to understand your most important priorities for today, tomorrow and your long-term future. Our philosophy celebrates collaboration. Working with a team of specialists, we draw on the resources and insights of a global financial institution to create strategies that reflect your aspirations for yourself and current and future generations of your family. Finally, we believe that while significant wealth brings complex challenges, our experience, passion and perspectives can help you simplify your life.

Multi Generational in Our Approach
We recognize that wealth preservation is not a short term endeavor. Our team is attuned to the needs of multiple generations of client families.

We look to foster the transfer of vision and values in conjunction with balance sheet wealth.
Clients look to us for direction in clarifying the responsibilities, challenges and opportunities of significant wealth. Throughout our engagements we look to support families not simply in establishing the vehicles and services that help them advance toward their goals, but in following through on a personal level. We are a tightly knit team and adopt that same immediacy with the families we serve.
