Who We Are


The Heritage Way

In 1998, a group of trust officers and customers came together to form an alternative to big bank trust departments for those desiring unbiased and independent counsel with a high level of client service. In 2015, Heritage combined with Argent Financial Group to form the largest independent, trust-based wealth management firm domiciled in the South. Responsible for client assets of more than $40 billion, our firm has the scale and sustainability to meet the unique needs and goals of individuals. We currently serve clients in all 50 U.S. states from our 35 markets located across 12 states. Building from that core, Heritage provides an array of related financial services including:

• Trust Administration
• Financial Planning
• Investment Management
• Oil and Gas (Mineral) Management
• Farm and Ranch Management
• Retirement Plan Consulting & Advisory

Heritage succeeds by building and maintaining relationships through proactive communication, creative and unbiased solutions, and dependable, responsive service. Above all, Heritage abides by the fiduciary standard – putting clients’ needs and interests first.
