There are investment partners
and there are Investment Partners
We only offer opportunities in which we would also invest. (And often, we do.)
Heritage Capital USA began over 20 years ago with Ryan Parson seeking alternative investment opportunities for himself and his family. Though the family has grown, the process has not. Nor has the primary goal: to help family members efficiently create and protect generational wealth.
Ryan and his family continue to invest in many of the deals offered to Mile Marker Club members. It’s this notion of being “down in the trenches” as a group – that our members never have to go it alone – that makes the combination of the Mile Marker Club and Heritage Capital USA so special. Ryan and his team truly put their money where their collective mouth is, and members appreciate that.
Our Family of Companies
Our family of companies bring a strategic advantage to both investor families and deal operators. This unique group offers a dynamic and unparalleled combination of wealth education, private investment opportunities and unique capital raising opportunities for deal flow operators.
