A Commitment to Earn Your Trust

The Ver Bockel Raihle Group, with more than 60 years of combined experience serving clients, provides customized advice and guidance to select ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families. As highly experienced private wealth advisors, we focus on simplifying your financial life by helping you navigate the complex and ever-changing environment that comes with significant wealth.

We believe in the power of relationships, and we are proud that clients have remained with us for many years and many generations. Our cohesive structure is designed to provide a consistently high level of service to you and your family throughout your lifetimes.

Making Your World a Simpler Place

Wealth opens many doors for you. We can design a financial framework that makes it easier for you to do the things you believe are important, allowing you to pursue your philanthropic interests and create a lifestyle that befits your real passions.

Our team will help assemble and coordinate the many services available to you through the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America, now and in the future. Although you may not currently need all of these specialized services, over time they can be essential in helping you navigate the complexities and the opportunities that arise. They include:

  • Trust and Estate Planning Services
  • Intergenerational Wealth Transfer Strategies
  • Concentrated Stock Management
  • Portfolio Risk Management
  • Tax Minimization Strategies
  • Philanthropic and Charitable Giving
  • Consolidated Financial Reporting
  • Family Office Services

A Broader View of Risk Management

Your goals and cash flow requirements dictate your individualized portfolio. While most clients with substantial wealth have similar needs—wealth preservation, consistent cash flow and eventual transfer of wealth to the next generation—we customize strategies to give you an opportunity to take advantage of the complex and dynamic financial landscape. When designing these strategies, we first determine your investment goals, time horizon, liquidity needs, and risk tolerance, then stress-test your portfolio in ways that help us determine your risk tolerance.

Managing risk is one of the most important aspects of wealth management. Though many clients think of risk management in terms of loss avoidance, our team strives to take a wider view of risk. Together with your tax professional, we examine the impact any potential investment decisions may have on your taxes. We also design tax-efficient wealth management strategies for future generations.

Experience and Insight, Plus Access to Deep Resources

John Ver Bockel and Maureen Raihle have both been recognized by Barron's in its America's Top 1,200 Financial Advisors list. John has also been recognized by Barron's among America's Top 100 Financial Advisors and Maureen among Barron's Top 100 Women Advisors. Together with our team, we put our considerable investment experience to work for you.

As we help you to develop your wealth management strategy, we draw on the same high-caliber analytics and oversight that Merrill Lynch's largest corporate and institutional clients receive. Our experience helps us navigate the tremendous resources that the Private Banking and Investment Group (PBIG) has to offer, including the strategists, analysts and product specialists who support private wealth advisors. PBIG clients generally comprise corporate executives, business owners and entrepreneurs, privately held family businesses and financial sponsors.

The Ver Bockel Raihle Group is deeply experienced in offering services to ultra-high-net-worth clients such as these.
