"Mike Heffernan came to me in 1999 to see if I could help him bring a best-in- class, investment solution to his top insurance clients. Many of Heffernan clients have built successful businesses and are in need of excellent investment advice to help them plan for retirement, succession, and estate planning. Our commitment to each client’s investment success is as strong today as it was when we started in 1999."
