Integrated planning

Oasis consults on a wide variety of inter-connected financial planning areas that impact you. We advise on retirement planning (detailed cash flow and net worth projections), income taxes, asset allocation and investment management, estate planning (tax and non-tax), insurance, executive compensation, and business succession planning. We strive to provide you with a peace of mind by getting you on the right track.

Fee-Only and fiduciary

Because we are a fee-only financial planning and wealth management firm that works as a fiduciary, our client's interest is at the core of what we do. We do not sell product or receive commissions, allowing us to provide unbiased, objective advice. We believe that your success and our success will be measured in our continuing commitment to character.

Providing clarity and confidence.

Our methodical, proven planning services provide clarity on where you stand today and provide confidence in taking the right steps to fill in the gaps. This approach to wealth management is in sharp contrast to the sales-first and move-on mentality prevalent in the financial services industry.

Delivering sound analysis.

Oasis has the training and experience in multiple disciplines (law, accounting, finance, tax) to deliver sound analysis and tailored advice you need in an increasingly complicated and busy world. Collaboration with the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners (over 150 planners nationwide), academic-based investment managers, and your existing advisors leads to actionable steps you can be confident in.

Secured web-conferencing.

We can meet you in remote markets through web-conferencing under various state's de minimis rules. It’s easy, saves you travel time, and is an effective experience.
