Andrew A. Heckel,CPWA®
Senior Financial Advisor
First Vice President
Senior Portfolio Manager
With nearly three decades of industry experience, Andrew believes meaningful client service is the foundation of wealth management success, so he works to ensure clients receive transparent, process driven guidance and proactive communication at every stage of wealth management: accumulation, preservation and distribution.
Andrew is a specially qualified Senior Portfolio Manager who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing his own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. Senior Portfolio Managers are provided a high degree of flexibility in constructing portfolios and selecting securities. When servicing clients through the firm's Investment Advisory Program, a Senior Portfolio Manager may use his own strategies on a discretionary basis. After meeting certain additional requirements, a Senior Portfolio Manager may use his own strategies to manage the assets of other Merrill Advisor's clients.
Andrew has obtained the Certified Private Wealth Advisor® (CPWA®) designation. The CPWA® certification is awarded by the Investments & Wealth Institute™ (The Institute) and taught in conjunction with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
A graduate of Clemson University, Andrew holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science with a minor in business management. He is a member of IPTAY and The Clemson Letter Winner's Association. Andrew is active in the community and has been involved with Habitat for Humanity and Ducks Unlimited. He enjoys an active lifestyle and is a Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling coach appointed with USA Wrestling. Andrew and his wife, Anna, have two children and reside in Scottsdale, Arizona.
