As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Heath Hightower, CFP®

Fee Only Financial Planner and Wealth Manager serving the Houston, TX area and clients nationwide

Heath Hightower is a Houston, TX fee-only financial planner. Financial Synergies Asset Management provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Heath Hightower is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Growing up in a farming family, Heath was fascinated by the unwavering discipline his father showed with the family’s modest finances.

Financial Synergies is a fee-only Financial Advisor located in Houston, Texas. For more than thirty years we’ve been serving the financial needs of individuals, families, and businesses from around the world. When we take on new clients they become part of our extended family, and in the past three decades we’ve developed multi-generational relationships with many of them.

Our primary goal is to simplify your financial life. Our Certified Financial Planner™ professionals and advisors combine investment management and holistic planning to provide total wealth management for our clients. Together, we’ll construct a financial game plan and investment strategy to meet your goals, and give you greater confidence in your future.

Financial Synergies Asset Management is formally structured as an independent Registered Investment Advisor, and we adhere to the highest fiduciary standard. Our clients’ interests are our top priority. We work on a fee-only basis and do not sell commission-based products. This enables us to be objective and free from conflicts of interest when making recommendations to clients.

Our Advantage

  • Fee-only: We are paid only by our clients. Most firms in our industry operate on a commission-based or fee-based approach. Commission-based firms get paid on the financial products they sell, and fee-based firms combine commissions and fees. There are huge conflicts of interest when advisors get paid by the product company providers. We simply do not engage in this.
  • Fiduciary: We took a Fiduciary oath to act in the best interests of our clients at all times.
  • Holistic: We look at your whole picture. We don’t just manage money. We provide comprehensive financial planning and investment management to create a total wealth management experience for our clients.
  • Boutique: We are a highly specialized financial advisory firm offering customized services, and our clients experience a high-touch relationship.
