Through our branch’s experience and leadership, we welcome working with individuals, families, business owners, executives and institutions—in rising or turbulent markets—and we are well-positioned to help you address your wealth planning challenges and opportunities.
The branch’s wealth planning process begins as the team’s advisors get to know you. The branch's teams take the time to learn your priorities, goals for retirement lifestyles, financial funding for children’s and grandchildren’s education, complex business issues, cash management and the need for credit strategies. Once we fully understand clients’ wants, needs and goals, we can employ the broad investing resources of Merrill and also offer you access to the banking convenience of Bank of America—as well as engaging our own experience and discipline to create a framework for addressing many financial challenges.
The branch is committed to providing transparency and openness, and we believe that’s why many clients have remained with us for long periods of time. Our branch’s advisor teams understand and respect the significance that individual investors and families place on trust, and they strive to develop a level of trust and intimacy that we believe is necessary to permit frank discussions on a wide range of individual, multi-generational and business needs. Let’s discuss how the branch and the wide array of services offered may benefit you.
Through our volunteerism and charitable outreach, the branch helps support the economic, social and cultural life of the communities in which we live and work. In virtually every Merrill location across the country, employees are involved in fundraising activities meant to benefit their many neighborhoods and causes. And as a local branch office, we feel it is important for us to “give back” and help maintain vibrant, healthy communities and non-profit organizations.
As a Merrill client, you have access to the knowledge and experience of industry-skilled advisors who are supported by the investing insights of Merrill, a disciplined wealth planning platform, and the technological resources of a leading global financial services firm. Our advisors strive to fully understand your personal and business needs, and those of your family and future generations. We will put your interests first to help you pursue your financial and life goals.
Our deeply committed advisors call upon Merrill’s tools and resources to help clients pursue personal and professional financial goals, as they also help them prepare for financial and lifestyle challenges that may lie ahead.
We’ve built experienced teams in each office with a strong infrastructure so that financial advisors can focus most of their time on clients and their investments. A Resident Director in the Bloomington branch usually focuses on a single office and tends to have broad experience in all aspects of financial services. Concentrating on a “client-first” culture, the Resident Director is a major part of the Market Executive’s team, and works hand-in-hand with the Market Supervision Manager, Client Relationship Manager, advisors, client associates and operations staff.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, together we can help you create a financial approach that reflects your personality. Only then can we offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the advice you need to help you address fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
No matter where your career may currently be, if you have the mindset and motivation of a Merrill financial advisor, you should consider the opportunity to become one yourself.
