Investment portfolios are customized to meet the objectives of each client.  While managing an appropriate level of risk, we focus on essential investment principles including diversification, asset allocation, and tax efficiency.  We ensure a consistent, disciplined approach in investment decision-making, which mitigates emotionally based decision errors.  Every family has unique financial needs, and therefore we promise to give specific one-on-one attention to your set of circumstances.  Our investment management services include a financial plan.

We specialize in helping our clients develop and create a financial planning roadmap of how to achieve their goals. Planning can be the most important, and often overlooked, element in financial success.  Topics in a comprehensive financial plan may include saving for retirement, spending during retirement, saving for a home, insurance coverage, education savings plan, investments, tax and estate planning.  Oak Street Advisory Group provides financial planning and retirement planning services for a one time flat fee.
