About us

The Team

Located in New York City, Andjelkovic & Knauf, Private Wealth Advisors is a wealth management team in the Private Banking and Investment Group at Merrill Lynch. Our group works with a select number of individuals, family offices and non-profit organizations offering expansive, highly tailored, integrated approach to wealth management. Our clients are private business owners, CEOs of publically traded companies as well as leaders of industries including real estate, technology and finance. The senior members of our team, Voja Andjelkovic and Michael Knauf, have worked together since 1996. Their long standing partnership coupled with decision making honed over many years and market cycles provides our team with discipline and judgment.

Our Approach

We are investors. We are students of history and markets. We believe that asset allocation is the foundation of long term financial success. We strive to manage and minimize risk. We inherently recognize that every client is different. We acknowledge many complexities of significant wealth and importance of keeping client interests front and center. Always. We put a premium on discretion and confidentiality. We are zealously committed to an exceptional client experience.

True wealth management is multi-faceted. Our singular investment focus is to deliver consistent and superior long-term performance.  We strive to reduce risk and volatility through diversification across portfolio sizes, styles, geographies and capital structures. While investment management is a pillar of our practice, we bring hands-on involvement in multiple disciplines ranging from generational planning and philanthropy to customized lending and aircraft financing. With access to the combined vast resources of the Private Bank and US Trust Company – we work with clients’ external tax and legal advisors to streamline and coordinate the unified pursuit of their financial objectives.

Our Value

We offer unbiased advice, rigorous investment analysis, collaborative approach, exceptional client service, and diligent follow-through.    We are transparent about our roles and responsibilities. Our support staff is integral to our long term success continuously striving to exceed expectations as well as refine our services based on evolving circumstances and environments. Our main goal is to simplify, organize, and enhance clients’ financial lives.
