We believe that the better informed you are, the better decisions you can make about what's right for you.
You have choices in how we work together, including how you receive advice, manage your account and pay for our services. Your advisor works with you to build a personalized approach to your investments based on your financial situation, preferences and goals. Your investment strategy can be implemented through an investment advisory account, brokerage account, or a combination of both.
We provide key resources and information to help you make informed decisions about your investments, taking into account the types of relationships you can have with us. You can review the applicable materials below to help you understand your options and how we charge for advice, services and solutions, and discuss them with your advisor.
We also make available to certain clients the Strategic Portfolio Advisor Service (SPA) and Managed Account Service (MAS) investment advisory programs for certain investment situations. These programs provide access to certain investment strategies offered by a third-party investment manager under a separate agreement. Copies of the program disclosures and client agreements can be obtained from your Advisor if eligible.
Depending on your needs, you can also choose investment advisory services available through an online, interactive website, either on a self-guided basis or with assistance from Financial Solutions Advisors. These programs include Merrill Guided Investing with Advisor, Merrill Guided Investing and Merrill Edge Advisory Account (MEAA).
