2Please review the Merrill Guided Investing Program Brochure (PDF) or the Merrill Guided Investing with Advisor Program Brochure (PDF) ("MGI with Advisor Program") for important information including pricing, rebalancing, and the details of the investment advisory program. Your recommended investment strategy will be based solely on the information you provide to us for this specific investment goal and is separate from any other advisory program offered with us. If there are multiple owners on this account, the information you provide should reflect the views and circumstances of all owners on the account. If you are the custodian of this account for the benefit of another person, please keep in mind that these assets will be invested for the benefit of the other person. Guided Investing is offered with and without an advisor. Merrill, Merrill Lynch, and/or Merrill Edge investment advisory programs are offered by Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith Incorporated ("MLPF&S"). MLPF&S and Managed Account Advisors LLC ("MAA") are registered investment advisors. Investment advisor registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training.
The Chief Investment Office (CIO) develops the investment strategies for Merrill Guided Investing and Merrill Guided Investing with Advisor, including providing its recommendations of ETFs, mutual funds and related asset allocations. Managed Account Advisors LLC (MAA), Merrill Lynch's affiliate, is the overlay portfolio manager responsible for implementing the Merrill Guided Investing strategies for client accounts, including facilitating the purchase & sale of ETFS or mutual funds in client accounts and updating account asset allocations when the CIO's recommendations change while also implementing any applicable individual client or firm restriction(s).
The results provided by the Personal Retirement Calculator (PRC) are intended for illustrative purposes only and accuracy is not guaranteed. The results should not be relied upon nor should they be deemed as investment advice.
IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by the Personal Retirement Calculator regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. Results may vary with each use and over time.
The Personal Retirement Calculator is provided by one or more third party service providers. However, the information generated by the calculator is developed by Merrill to estimate how current savings and estimated future contributions may help to meet estimated income in retirement. The information estimates potential growth of your indicated assets and contributions over the time frame specified. The market return data used to generate the illustration is hypothetical and intended to provide you with a general idea of how an asset mix you selected might perform over time.
The respective asset mix may be useful information, but is in no way representative of past performance of a particular investment, and is not representative of any future performance of any particular investment. Numerous factors make the calculations uncertain, such as the use of assumptions about hypothetical returns and inflation as well as the data you have provided. Assumptions concerning inflation are for illustrative purposes only. Any asset or portfolio earnings and/or returns shown or used do not reflect the cost of investing, including commissions or fees.
Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
