MH & Associates prides itself in being a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is regulated under the Investment advisors Act of 1940. We are a "fee only" advisor which means that we do not earn commissions or other similar payments. We are a pure investment management firm. Our focus is building quality portfolios, generating good returns, and providing excellent service to our loyal clients. Our research and selection of investments is based on independent and objective analysis. Further, we think it is important that clients have a personal relationship with those who are entrusted with managing their investment assets.  J. Robert Meichelbock and John Heilman founded the firm in 1981.


The SEC requires investment advisors to file and provide to exisiting and prospective clients a short form document (Form CRS) summarizing the advisory relationship with MH & Associates.  Please click the link on the right to view this document.  If you have further questions please contact us.


The SEC requires investment advisers to prepare narrative brochures that include plain English disclosures of the adviser’s business practices, fees, conflicts of interest, and disciplinary information. The brochure is the primary disclosure document for investment advisers and must be delivered to advisory clients.  Please click the link to the right to view this document.  If you have further questions, or would like a copy of the Supplement to the brochure (which details the principals of the firm), please contact us.


Years In Business

We understand that we are the stewards of our client's hard earned savings and we strive hard every day to justify their confidence and trust in our firm



The investment team is made up of John Heilman, Daniel J. Meichelbock, Andrew Heilman. These individuals work closely together to ensure that client investment objectives and service needs are met, and it is a policy of MH & Associates that client accounts are managed by the entire investment team as opposed to being assigned to one particular professional within the firm. In addition, Lara Heilman manages the office and assists in various client service related matters. The firm is, in its truest sense, a family business which ensures the values of the founding partners continue into the future.


MH & Associates does not take possession of client assets. All client accounts are domiciled at a bank or brokerage firm of the clients choice. Absent any preference or direction, MH & Associates will direct the client to a discount brokerage firm.


Our minimum account size is $300,000, but under certain circumstances have accepted accounts in the past that do not meet the minimum requirements.

Joseph Robert Meichelbock (1937-2017) - Founding Partner

As a founding partner of MH & Associates, J. Robert Meichelbock will be greatly missed.  "Bob" and John started MH in 1981 and their hard work has grown this firm into what it is today. The stock market was one of his great loves and he watched it closely until his last days.  Bob was a brilliant investment mind and his stamp on the company can continually be felt through his son Daniel taking his reigns.  Bob always "did the right thing for our clients" and we endeavour to adhere to that principal.
