Specialties
Transition planning, which many of our clients consider retirement planning. We find meaning with long term relationships to guide them through other transitions, like aging in place, divorce, decline in health, children, and college planning

About My Practice
Heintz Wealth Management is a financial life planning and investment management firm that takes a unique approach to first understand what’s most important to each client, and then provide strategic plans in an effort to align financial resources with lifelong goals. Inspired by practices from the Kinder Institute of Life Planning, our Financial Life Planning process guides individuals and families as they connect their money to their time, talent and energy in meaningful ways — with financial plans that speak to the person as a whole; not just the facts and figures.

Ideal Clients
Our ideal client seeks out living their most fulfilled life, with an desire to understand their own connections to wealth and live out their values, dreams and visions. They also desire delegating some or all of the responsibility of investment management and cash management. We work across generations of families, with a focus on individuals and couples near or beyond their working years.

Compensation
Heintz Wealth Management is fee-only, meaning all our compensation comes from our clients. Fees are paid as a percentage of assets under management, a flat annual planning fee, an overall flat fee, or by the hour/project. We believe we can reduce conflicts of interest by not receiving fees or compensation from other sources. We primarily custody client assets at Fidelity Investments Institutional (Fidelity Clearing and Custody Services). We work with DPL Financial Partners to provide risk management solutions in insurance and annuities.
