Professional Profile

Marshall is a Managing Director and Private Client Advisor with Bank of America Private Bank. He joined Bank of America in 1978. During the past 15 years, Marshall has provided comprehensive and integrated guidance to high net worth clients and their families related to investment, credit, wealth transfer, philanthropic and banking needs. Previously he worked with high net worth clients and large corporations in the bank’s derivative unit utilizing equity, interest rate, commodity and cross currency hedging techniques.  Additionally, he has worked in the bank’s corporate finance and loan syndication units in both business development and management capacities.

Marshall’s areas of concentration include investment strategies as well as complex credit strategies often involving real estate, marine and aviation assets.  He believes that it is important to work closely with clients to fully appreciate their goals and the aspirations for their families. Providing thoughtful alternatives that help meet these goals is at the heart of his team’s approach. Additionally, given the changing legal, tax and investment landscape, he believes it is important to work closely with the client’s full team of advisors to help ensure coordinated and timely implementation.
