Goals-Based Investment Management

Principles of Investing 


icon

Act as a fiduciary

As fee-only fiduciary advisors, we have chosen to put our client’s interest first. It is more than a legal standard – it is how we think clients should be treated.

icon

Low-cost alternatives

With index-like investing, you receive efficient low-cost alternatives that attempts to keep costs low and minimize taxes.

icon

Goals-based Asset Allocation

Your investment portfolio should be integrated with your financial plan. Your investment portfolio is tied to a variety of your goals, including your cash flow needs in retirement.

icon

Evidence-based approach

You receive a globally diversified portfolio that tilts allocations towards favorable “factors” in the market.  As we leverage Dimensional Fund Advisors and do not chase fads, you benefit from research that focuses on elements that are sensible, persistent, and robust.

icon

Leverage technology

You receive robust reporting and access to view your accounts and asset allocation from any device.  Technology coupled with credentialed, experienced advisors leads to customized advice while maintaining low costs.

Education and Behavioral Coaching

We value our role as teacher so that you will have confidence in the long-term strategy.  To avoid the mistakes that so many do-it-yourselfers make during market volatility, you receive coaching along the journey.

Oasis Wealth has chosen TD Ameritrade ("TDA") to be the trusted custodian for our clients’ assets. TDA is one of the largest custodians in the world. Their technology, focus on service, and commitment to independent advisors provide the level of resources we need to deliver planning and investment management to clients throughout Florida and beyond. 

Dimensional

Dimensional Fund Advisors. Dimensional is a leading global investment firm that has translated academic research to practical investment solutions since 1981. While they generally only work through select financial advisors, Dimensional has nearly $600 billion in assets under management (as of June, 2019). While we use a variety of solutions to meet our clients' needs, Dimensional fulfills most of the asset allocation sleeves.


Our firm utilizes eMoney planning technology to assist in analyzing a client's situation as well as to provide a dashboard for our clients. This technology provides a high level of organization for our clients while allowing them to see their financial picture in real-time. Sure, there are cheaper tools available, but that just would not be right.
