About Greg Schuler

Your financial plan should be tailored to your family's goals, and that's why I take great care and satisfaction in weaving together a plan that is perfectly suited to your situation. As a fiduciary advisor, I focus on creating comprehensive blueprints that address both short- and long-term goals. I believe that to achieve wealth accumulation and sustainable retirement strategies, it's important to understand and work through the complexities of risk, income distribution, and tax planning, while building a flexible plan that can adapt as your needs change.

With over 20 years of experience in the financial industry, I discovered early on that assisting people with their personal finances was not only an affinity of mine, but also a rewarding endeavor. Joining OakWood has allowed me to deliver the personalized planning and service that clients deserve, which can be difficult to find with larger firms. I look forward to getting to know you, understanding your goals, and providing guidance to keep you informed and empowered about your financial decisions.

Financial Services

Retirement Planning

Retirement and Income Planning demands a dual-focused strategy that facilitates both wealth accumulation and distribution. Our process entails a comprehensive needs assessment, an in-depth analysis of income sources including projections for social security benefits, evaluations of employer-sponsored plans, anticipated inheritances, personal savings, careful examination of balance sheets, and a review of real estate assets. Following this, we present you with insightful projections and actionable strategic approaches.

Tax Advice and Services

Taxation Planning considers financial decisions with the objective of minimizing tax liability. Our investment analysis encompasses income tax considerations, evaluating the effect of taxes, and devising tax-efficient investment strategies. Tax strategies most often employed loss harvesting, determination of cost basis, gift and estate tax, life event taxation, and tax return review for planning opportunities and coordination with CPA.

Wealth Management

Wealth Management is the process of defining your financial goals and mapping out a strategy to pursue them. This ongoing process adapts in response to your financial circumstances, changes in your personal situation, shifts in the economic environment, and even evolving legislation. We will outline your objective and time horizon, discuss appropriate investment strategies, and then prepare a plan for funding goals.

401K Rollovers

Former employers' 401K's often stand as vestiges of the career transitions that have become increasingly common in today's professional landscape. Simplicity, control, and investment options can serve as compelling motive to initiate a review of these accounts and consider changes.

Investment Advice & Management

Investment Planning is putting together a portfolio that will work towards pursuing your financial goals, all within the confines of your risk tolerance. This is achieved by completing an objective assessment, identifying time horizons, and gauging your appetite for risk. Our customized asset allocation approach includes thorough analysis of investment selections, tax considerations, timeline, implementation, monitoring, and rebalancing. Additional Services provided are market and economic updates, individual stock holdings, and concentrated portfolio analysis.
