Yes. We are legally required to always act in our clients’ best interest.
Unlike many firms, Heritage works on a fee-only basis. That means we have no commission incentive, nor any other compensation arrangements which could compromise our objectivity. We are independent and privately owned, which allows us to maintain a service-oriented and client-focused practice. And we still have an actual person who will answer your phone calls during normal business hours.
Founded in 1993, we are a second-generation, family-owned business.
As part of our standard services, we review our clients’ accounts at least quarterly and meet with clients on an “as needed” basis at their request. Events that trigger reviews include changes to our investment recommendations and changes to a client’s financial situation and/or investment needs.
Our fee is charged as a percentage of the assets that we manage and is billed quarterly. As indicated in the Heritage Advisory Contract, the fee percentage will typically decline when the value of your account reaches certain thresholds. However, the dollar amount of the fee will increase as the value of your account(s) increases. Therefore, we have an incentive to grow the assets in your account(s).
To open and maintain an account, Heritage has a minimum relationship size of $1,000,000, but at its discretion Heritage can accept accounts or clients below this minimum.
Our offices are in Pompano Beach, Tampa, and Orlando Florida.
