Managing your personal finances can, at times, seem to be an overwhelming process. And why shouldn’t it be? You've spent years accumulating assets based on your skills and experience in your area of expertise, which probably was not in the field of personal money management. At Heritage Financial Planning, we understand that you are not an expert in finance.
Fortunately, we are1. While you've been honing your skills and knowledge in your chosen area, we have been building ours in the area of how to be excellent stewards for your money. We believe a quality financial planning firm is one where you can put your money in our hands and go on with your life, confident in the fact that we're taking care of your assets2.
What Sets Us Apart
Several factors set us apart from other financial planning firms. For one, we are actual fiduciaries, not just salespeople masquerading as money experts. As fiduciaries, we have a legal obligation to put our clients’ best interests first. This works out just fine for us — but it might make you wonder what the financial planning firms that haven’t been willing or able to become fiduciaries are up to.
Any financial advisor you work with at Heritage Financial Planning will be independent, meaning they're not beholden to any product from any company, nor are they required to try to get you to invest more or more widely than you are prepared to. They also don't have to keep you on the phone for X amount of hours. Our only goal is to help you determine what is in your best interest, then guide you down that path. Our only obligation is to you.
Another crucial feature of Heritage Financial Planning is that we are a fee-only advisor. Unlike other planners who always start their work “on-the-clock,” we find that a fee-only approach is more beneficial to creating open dialogue and fostering a long-term relationship with our clients, allowing us to take care of you to the absolute best of our ability.
