Pamela Lynn Abraham & Associates

Pamela Lynn Abraham

Pamela Lynn Abraham, Managing Director, Partner, and Chief Investment Strategist at Pamela Lynn Abraham & Associates, has more than 37 years of experience in the investment services industry. Pamela’s investment process combined with her discretionary portfolio management is her signature specialty. Her process starts with assessing the goals and risk tolerance of her clients, establishing a financial plan, and then executing on that plan. She and her team function as a family office, serving the financial needs of their high-net-worth clients.

Forbes has recognized Pamela by naming her to its 2018 and 2019 Best-in-State Wealth Advisors lists as well as their 2018 Top Women Wealth Advisors list. Pamela was formerly a Senior Vice President with Merrill Lynch and a Senior Portfolio Manager in its PIA discretionary program, managing $375,000,000 for 120 families. She was also a member of the firm’s “Director’s Circle”, one of Merrill’s highest designations for top performing advisors. She received her degree in journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Her career started as a reporter for Newsweek Magazine in New York City, where she reported on economics and Wall Street. A self-described news junkie, Pamela spends much of her “down” time studying current events and their effect on the economy and markets.

An avid gardener, Pamela tends to her many orchids and takes a hands-on approach to her home’s landscape. She’s equally passionate about the fine arts and has collections from glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and watercolorist P.A. Kessler.
