Recognizing the complex considerations surrounding a concentrated ownership position, your Private Wealth Advisor can work in concert with your external tax and legal advisors to develop a detailed understanding of the constraints and possibilities posed by your situation. Your Private Wealth Advisor then uses this knowledge to work with the members of the Structured Solutions Group, among others, to devise derivative overlays and other tax-sensitive strategies that seek to minimize the risk of your concentrated position while working to enhance your portfolio liquidity.
A critical component of these strategies is timing. Fortunately, in developing your customized concentrated stock strategy, your advisor is also backed by the trade-execution prowess of Merrill Lynch's renowned Global Markets division.
Diversification, asset allocation and rebalancing do not assure a profit or protect against loss. Rebalancing may trigger a tax event.
