Welcome to Awareness that "Knowledge Nurtures Growth"

Oak-like financial growth, increased wealth and security for your family, a robust retirement for you: these are the financial goals we work with clints to achieve with:

  1. A full range of investment vehicles offered through LPL Financial.
  2. In-depth experience and knowledge of our professional advisors.
  3. A financial philosophy guided by the awareness that knowledge nurtures growth.

Our years of experience and study have taught us that the more you know, the less you risk. The more you understand and grasp, the wiser and surer your investment choices. The more you understand the past, the more you can predict and be ready for the challenges and opportunities of the future.  At Oakton Investment Management, we begin the growth process with our own knowledge and experience.  We augment that with information and analytics given to us by LPL Financial to make sure we are planting assets in the right growth areas.  Then we watch and nurture the investments.  And, we don't necessarily let nature take its course.  If we need to we intervene, which is why we constantly remain in an awareness and learning mode.
