Professional Profile


Our Philiosophy
Benefiting from the lessons history has taught about the importance of properly managing risk, The Cardinali Group adheres to a disciplined, proactive, consultative risk management process. This process delivers a consistent yet customized financial advisory experience.

Our Approach
Prior to offering any strategies, the team considers the various aspects of your life, taking the time to fully understand who you are and what matters most to you as an individual, an investor and/or a business professional. With this knowledge, the team is able to help you establish realistic objectives, develop an appropriate strategy and only then recommend strategies that draw upon the breadth, depth, and resources of the Merrill Lynch/Bank of America partnership. Emphasizing tax efficient retirement income planning as well as legacy and philanthropic planning, The Cardinali Group will partner with your other trusted advisors (CPA’s, Attorney’s, etc) to coordinate all aspects of your financial life.

Furthermore, in order to provide exceptional service the team will conduct regular reviews with you to help monitor your progress toward reaching your goals. Consequently, we will work to keep your strategies consistent with any changes that may take place in your life and/or business, and adjust your plan accordingly.
