Nope. Google search doesn't turn up much, other than a log in screen. It's not/hasn't been on the Merrill Lynch website, doesn't show up on the AMEX website either.

However...It may be a discontinued/no longer available card from Merrill Lynch. Part of that Google search:

◾Merrill Lynch branded (including Merrill Accolades®, MERRILL+®, Total Merrill® Cash Back, Total Merrill Match® and Merrill Lynch®Octave&#8482 ;)

The only card that's still active/available from Merrill Lynch is the Merrill + card. Looks like the Total Merrill was fairly recently discontinued, and the Merrill Accolades went belly up shortly after being ported over from being a BofA card to a ML card.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!

Yes, the card exists. My Financial Advisers told me about it today. It is for ML Private Wealth Management and US Trust Clients with over $10m in assets with the Bank.It was just released last week.

Of course, the money spent paying high asset management fees or brokerage commissions on $10m could cover the annual fees on many cards.

1% of $10m is $100k - that's 222 Amex Platinums or 1052 CSPs.

I keep my portfolio management expenses very low, at least. If someone wants full service at a brokerage, then the card might be a reasonable add-on.
