Hybrid RIA Sanctuary Wealth picked up a Chicago-based advisory team from Merrill Lynch with $1 billion in client assets, Sanctuary said Friday.

Merrill did not immediately respond to a request for comment about losing the advisor team.

The team has “run an incredible business for years by catering to the unique needs of the multi-generational clients they serve,” according to Adam Malamed, Sanctuary CEO. “Their mix of next generation and veteran advisors is exactly what’s needed to succeed in the wealth management space going forward,” he said in a statement.

He added: “We look forward to giving them the freedom and flexibility, along with the support they need to meet their goals of growing their business organically and through acquisitions.”

Burnham has been providing complete wealth management solutions to high-net-worth families, business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, doctors, professional athletes and philanthropists, according to Sanctuary.

The team “focuses on helping multi-generational families achieve and maintain their wealth and lifestyle goals through their expertise in financial guidance, legacy implementation, estate coordination, risk management strategies, retirement lifestyle continuation, tax minimization and transition counseling,” Sanctuary added.
