Merrill Lynch Wealth Management is an American wealth management division under the auspices of Bank of America. Along with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the investment banking arm, both firms engage in prime brokerage and security dealings. The firm is headquartered in New York City, and occupies the entire 34 stories of 250 Vessey Street, part of the Brookfield Place complex, in Manhattan. Merrill Lynch employs over 15,000 financial advisers and manages $2.2 trillion in client assets.

The firm has its origins in Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. which, prior to 2009, was publicly owned and traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol MER. Merrill Lynch & Co. agreed to be acquired by Bank of America on September 14, 2008, at the height of the 2008 Financial Crisis. The acquisition was completed in January 2009 and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. was merged into Bank of America Corporation in October 2013, although certain Bank of America subsidiaries continue to carry the Merrill Lynch name, including the broker-dealer Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith.

Our goals are to help our portfolio managers become even better investors and to produce thought-provoking investment insights for clients and policymakers. We provide connectivity between our portfolio managers; originate research on markets, economics, portfolio construction and cross-asset themes such as geopolitics; develop investment views on behalf of BlackRock; and publish insights in publications and data visuals.  We launched BII in 2011 to leverage BlackRock’s expertise in markets, asset classes, geographies and client segments.   We keep our investment professionals connected and informed by convening internal forums, workshops and calls. These investment debates enable our fund managers to challenge each other’s thinking, share insights and generate new investment ideas. BII’s global investment strategy team and its economic and markets research team work with the firm's portfolio managers to develop investment views. They also support investment teams with original research.

Deloitte

We believe that we're only as good as the good we do.

All the facts and figures that talk to our size and diversity and years of history, as notable and important as they may be, are secondary to the truest measure of Deloitte: The impact we make in the world.

So, when people ask, “What’s different about Deloitte?” the answer resides in the many specific examples of where we have helped Deloitte member firm clients, our people, and sections of society to achieve remarkable goals, solve complex problems, or make meaningful progress. Deeper still, it’s in the beliefs, behaviors, and fundamental sense of purpose that underpin all that we do.

With more than 150 years of hard work and commitment to making a real difference, our organization has grown in scale and diversity—approximately 245,000 people in 150 countries and territories, providing audit & assurance, tax, legal, risk and financial advisory and consulting services—yet our shared culture remains the same.

For us, good isn't good enough. We aim to be the best at all that we do—to help clients realize their ambitions, to make a positive difference in society, and to maximize the success of our people. This drive fuels the commitment and humanity that run deep through our every action.

That’s what makes us truly different at Deloitte. Not how big we are, where we are, nor what services we offer. What really defines us is our drive to make an impact that matters in the world.
