What To Expect

What You Should Expect from Us

Knowing what to expect from a financial planning relationship puts you in the driver's seat—which is exactly where you belong. To get the most out of your experience with a financial advisor, you shouldn't settle for anything less than the qualities of a true professional.  At Oakwood Capital Advisors, you can expect


Trust is central to a successful financial planning relationship. You rely on your advisor's honesty, professionalism, and abilities to achieve your goals. When you know your advisor takes his or her professional obligations seriously and places principles over personal gain, you can form a good working partnership. Our advisors with Oakwood Capital Advisors all follow the CFP Board's strict Standards of Professional Conduct which are designed to ensure everyone on our team acts in a professionally responsible manner.

Objective Conflict-Free Advice

Your needs will be at the heart of all of our recommendations. All financial advisors with Oakwood Capital Advisors have an ethical obligation to act in your best interest when he or she provides financial planning advice. We will use our extensive experience and judgment to carefully consider your situation, and then give you advice that best meets your goals.


Our financial advisors have demonstrated advanced levels of knowledge to offer financial planning advice by obtaining professional designations such as the CFP® certification, the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®) designation, and the Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) designation.  This provides confidence that your financial planner has completed rigorous education and experience requirements—including continuing education coursework—designed to ensure competence in financial planning.

Fair Treatment

Fair treatment means we will clearly state what services will be provided and at what cost. We will also explain the risks associated with all financial recommendations, along with any potential conflicts of interest.


To get the best results from your financial planning relationship, you need to divulge relevant personal and financial information to your financial planner on a regular basis. Oakwood Capital Advisors will always keep this information in confidence, only sharing it to conduct business on your behalf, at your consent or when ordered to do so by a court of law.


Our financial advisors will never provide financial advice or services unless he or she is properly qualified and licensed to do so, as required by state or federal law. If your situation requires expertise which your financial advisor does not possess, we will suggest other professionals who may assist you.


Before engaging you as a client, our advisors will discuss your goals and objectives and explain what you can expect from the relationship. Once we have determined that we can assist you, we will make recommendations suitable for you.


We believe that every one of our clients are important and deserves the highest level of customer service in a respectful, friendly, and positive manner.  We also believe in providing service to our communities through generous gifts of our time and resources.
