Merrill Lynch Branch Office

Welcome to the Columbus, OH Branch. Our financial advisors work within a customized, goals-based system that begins with the belief that each client is unique, and that our wealth management strategies need to reflect each client’s individual objectives, no matter how large or small.

Our willingness to invest in our people, our ability to leverage Merrill Lynch’s investing resources and specialists and to provide access to our consumer and business banking services, positions us to help you devise strategies designed to preserve, grow and distribute your wealth.

We recognize that each client is unique, and we shape our sophisticated wealth management strategies to reflect those differences. Many of our clients are still actively pursuing and accumulating wealth, and we work closely with them to develop goals-based wealth management strategies that can help define their long-term financial needs, lifestyle desires, wealth transfer and legacy objectives and, through access to Bank of America, their philanthropic interests. We understand that clients need to balance and prioritize multiple goals, and we believe we are well-positioned to help them do so.

About Us

Our Branch’s wealth management process begins as our advisors get to know clients “beneath the surface.” Our teams take the time to learn client priorities, including risk tolerance, objectives, time horizon and liquidity needs, goals for retirement lifestyles, education for children and grandchildren, complex business issues, cash management and their need for credit strategies. Once we fully understand clients’ wants, needs and goals, we employ the broad investing resources of Merrill Lynch and offer access to the banking convenience of Bank of America—as well as engaging our own experience and discipline to create a framework for addressing their financial challenges.
We provide 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 is necessary to permit frank discussions on a wide range of individual, multi- generational and business needs. Let’s discuss how our branch and the wide array of services we offer may benefit you.

Through our volunteerism and charitable outreach, our Branch helps support the economic, social and cultural life of the places in which we live and work. In virtually every Merrill Lynch 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.
