Monday, January 23, 2017/Categories: Education, Financial Planning

Heartland Investment Services LogoSince 1994, Heartland Bank has provided access to investment services. Starting off as a reaction to low CD rates, this business unit has experienced a metamorphosis over the last few years. With the addition of Certified Financial Planner Jessica McNamee, the focus and capabilities of the unit are complete.

“Not only is Heartland Investment Services now committed to a ‘planning approach’ for wealth management, we’re also excited to be able to offer our clients a more diversified group of products,” said McNamee. “We’ll start by assessing their current situation and identifying priorities and goals. Only then will we develop a comprehensive financial plan that includes specific recommendations tailored to their needs,” she said.

“Comprehensive financial planning is of significant and growing importance in serving our Heartland Bank customers. We are thrilled that Jessica will lead and broaden our current offering to provide valued insight, knowledge and structured financial planning to our customers in all stages of asset protection and the wealth creation continuum. Her experience, credentials and passion to serve others are in clear alignment with our organization’s purpose in serving the central Ohio community,” said Brian T Mauntel, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer for Heartland Bank.

Our team of financial planners and investment representatives maintains nationally recognized certifications and we have years of experience helping clients with:

  • Investment planning
  • Retirement planning
  • Education planning
  • Risk and insurance analysis
  • Income and estate tax-sensitive investment strategies
    • We do not provide tax advice. Consult your tax advisor
