Questionnaires

Financial DNA

Merit has partnered with Financial DNA® to provide you with an in-depth perspective of your personal financial behaviors, communication styles, and tolerances. You'll begin this process by taking a short, web-based questionnaire. Once completed, you'll have a consultation with your advisor to discuss the results.
