WHAT WE DO
Investment & Financial Planning Services For Those Who Support Human Flourishing
Invest On Purpose
Oakstreet Financial is a non-commission advisory firm dedicated to serving only people and businesses committed to investments that promote human flourishing. Our investment strategies are faith-based. In addition to technical analysis, we look at every investment from a moral and values perspective.
We seek out investments in companies that are making a positive impact in the world. We also actively avoid investments in companies operating against traditional values like pornography and child labor.
Research shows that investing with intention does not mean sacrificing returns. We provide our clients with comprehensive financial services designed to bring them value while also impacting the world for good.
A core part of Oakstreet's offering is financial planning. A financial plan is a thorough account of a person or family's long-term goals for financial protection and security, as well as a detailed savings and investment strategy to reach those objectives. Our complimentary financial plan includes an overview of the current economic picture, review of investments, a debt reduction plan (if appropriate), and insurance needs analysis.

ABOUT OAKSTREET FINANCIAL
What we do: Investment & Financial Planning Services for those who Support Human Flourishing
Our Mission: Our mission is to provide our clients with comprehensive financial services designed to bring them value while also impacting the world for God's glory.
Our Vision: Our vision is to provide professionally managed faith-based portfolios, comprehensive financial management, and ongoing discussions to earn our client's confidence and help them achieve their financial objectives.
Invest With Confidence
Our investment philosophy begins by interviewing clients to identify their investment profile, values, and insurance needs. Our discovery process includes, but is not limited to, investments, financial situation and needs, tax status, investment objectives, investment experience, investment time horizon, liquidity needs, risk tolerance, and current insurance information.
Next, based on the information collected, we make recommendations consistent with traditional values and the best interests of our client.
We think high-quality companies that excel at creating value for others can also offer superior long-term risk-adjusted returns. Options, futures, cryptocurrency, and penny stocks are not a part of our investment philosophy.
We go beyond recommending products and services that are suitable. We are bound by the law as a fiduciary to act ethically and responsibly to manage assets for the benefit of our clients rather than for our profit.
We consider it a privilege and a joy to be trusted with such a vital part in our client's lives.
WE ARE INDEPENDENT
Impartial Financial Advice
Your Best Interest
Unlike many advisors, we do not accept compensation based on investment product sales. Operating fee-only allows us to reduce conflicts of interest and provide more balanced and comprehensive advice. Fee-only advisors have fewer inherent conflicts of interest, and generally, offer more in-depth advice and services.
Why is independence important?
In a profession based on objective advice, true independence offers many choices intended to benefit you, the client. Your choice of an independent financial professional is the first step in getting unbiased recommendations and impartial guidance based directly on your goals and needs.
An independent financial professional is not an employee of an investment or financial services firm - they are an independent business owner. They have the freedom to structure their business in a manner that best serves their clients. An independent professional is much different from a captive advisor who may work for firms that are conglomerates such as commercial banks, investment banks, or insurance companies.
What is a Registered Investment Advisor?
Just as you can choose your financial professional, the financial professional selects a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm to run their investment and advisory business through. Generally, an independent RIA does not underwrite securities, have proprietary funds, create research, or engage in investment banking.
An independent RIA allows financial professionals to offer non-proprietary products, such as mutual funds, ETFs, or insurance products through a variety of companies. The RIA generally provides services to the financial professional that include processing investment business, marketing assistance, practice management, and education. Also, an RIA holds responsibility for regulatory compliance and adherence to securities laws designed to protect the investing public.
We chose to run our investment business through the independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) Inspire Advisors.
When we decided to operate independently for all the reasons above, we chose to be a part of the Inspire Advisors team because they are steadfast about glorifying God in all areas of business and in their personal lives. They offer the widest range of investment strategies that align with our values.
Inspire Advisors is one of the few 100% Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) firms in the country. This focus allows them to research and develop a wide variety of investment strategies designed to fit our client's varying goals and objectives.
Joining your faith and finances brings a peace beyond the volatility that the rest of the world endures.

In 1972, after returning home from Vietnam, David's father, Dave Eck, Sr. learned his uncle had sold him an over-priced whole life insurance policy, which would leave his wife and family destitute should something happen to him. Realizing he and countless others were being similarly exploited, his passion became helping them avoid the same mistake.
Under the tutelage of a fellow Army officer, Dave was licensed and started a lifelong campaign to teach families how money works. Over the years, Art Williams, Larry Burkett, Dave Ramsey, and others have popularized those same practical principles.
"I believe that through knowledge and discipline, financial peace is possible for all of us." - Dave Ramsey
Today, half a century later, David Eck and the Oakstreet Financial team continue the tradition of easy-to-understand financial solutions designed to help clients make educated decisions about their financial goals.
