Branch Office Profile

Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in Madison, WI is located in Manchester Place on the Capitol Square in downtown Madison. We take great pride in the standard of service we provide and our ability to leverage Merrill Lynch and Bank of America’s resources helping us to deliver on our commitment to excellence.

About the Manager: Chris Tierney is the Resident Director of the Madison office. Chris began his career with Merrill Lynch in 2000 after attending the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a triple major in Finance, Marketing and Management. He lives in Verona with his wife Stacie and son Davis.

We follow a client focused wealth management process whereby our Financial Advisors take the time to understand what is most important to you, your family and your business. We help you establish goals and objectives and then implement investment strategies to address unique and specific challenges.

Since 2007, our Madison Office has raised over $4.1 million for various local charities in the Madison area through our Merrill Grand Gala. The Gala has been one of the ways for our employees to give back to our community and we take great pride in our ability to help make a difference for the organizations we support.

At Merrill, we believe that wealth isn't just about the performance of your portfolio—it is about how you live your life and the personally meaningful goals you want to achieve. This could be saving for retirement, planning for a college education, saving for a second home, caring for a family member or starting a business. Starting with your life priorities as a foundation, your Merrill advisor can recommend a wide variety of financial strategies to help you pursue your goals, assist in tracking progress and make adjustments along the way, putting you —not the market—at the center of all we do.
