Why Oak Grove Capital

Our Approach

Oak Grove Capital is a customer-centered provider of financial management and advisory services for select individuals, private companies and non-profits. Our mandate is to provide superior, institutional-level asset and risk management services to clients accustomed to much less from retail wealth management firms and brokerages.

We differentiate ourselves by our process and experience, manifested in the following ways:

  • Relationship-driven, client-centric focus.  The foundation for our mission statement begins with a thorough understanding of our clients’ life circumstances, risk personality and financial objectives.   We want to exceed your expectations with excellence, integrity and stewardship of your financial trust.  We’ll do that with regular communication and a commitment to constant improvement.
  • Broad industry experience that separates us from much of our competition. We bring decades of law, direct international and emerging markets, capital markets, and portfolio risk management experience to bear on our clients’ financial objectives. We think experience and hard work equates to a “knowledge advantage” and that consistently superior performance is not possible without it.
  • Primacy of risk management.  We emphasize risk-adjusted investment performance over return chasing.  Our goal is consistently superior returns with commensurately lower risk.   Accepting above-average risk to get positive returns in positive markets isn’t an acceptable standard.  We believe skilled investment management means superior performance in difficult markets as well as positive ones.  Making loss prevention a priority leads to superior returns.
  • Aligned interests between the advisor and the client. Every investment decision we make for our clients is performance-based. Our compensation model is “pay for performance.” That means we don’t receive sales commissions or have hidden fees. We aren’t associated with any one investment provider.  Because we have virtually unlimited choice across a global platform of financial products, the breadth of the financial “toolbox” we use to manage assets is determined solely by our judgment on what we believe is best for our clients’ objectives.
