Multi-Manager Approach

Oatley & Diak subscribes to a multi-manager approach.  The managers utilized demonstrate the ability to provide consistent risk-adjusted performance against their respective benchmarks and peers over the long term.  A rigorous research and review process continuously monitors the manager’s performance and style.  The “multi-manager” approach is designed to achieve superior returns with less overall portfolio risk.

Life Transitions

Life Transition services

In a lifetime, one will more than likely experience a life-changing event: the death of a spouse, loss of job, inheritance, retirement, health crisis, divorce, or career advancement. Managing that transition can be challenging, especially if done alone. No matter the triggering event, the pressure or trauma that occurs can hinder a person's ability to make sound financial decisions.


Our team is here to help and is dedicated to helping you make educated and informed decisions.  Specific activities and tools are used to guide you through the crucial decision-making process, establishing achievable action steps at a reasonable pace. 



When you are going through a life-changing event like a divorce, the transition can be challenging, especially if done alone. We can assist by providing a magnifying lens on your financial options in an affordable, peaceful manner.
