Our branch office has one primary goal: to help affluent households and business owners pursue their financial dreams. We regularly work with advisors from all of our teams so we can shape client recommendations that reflect our combined knowledge, independent thinking and broad resources.
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 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 believe our Branch has built a positive reputation in the Grosse Pointe Communities and Detroit region by focusing on financial needs of professionals— doctors, lawyers and accountants with substantial wealth—who need professional assistance in managing risk and preserving wealth for the next generation and the generations that follow. Our advisors focus on helping to simplify professionals’ financial lives by navigating them through the complex, changing environment that almost always accompanies significant wealth. And we offer strategies designed to help clients preserve their wealth, guide their philanthropic gifting, and fulfill their legacies.
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 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.
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.
Our deeply committed financial 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.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, we can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can we offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
