Cleveland Ohio Office, Beachwood
Oxford Harriman & Company is built on the concept of a strategic relationship between practice and client — one designed to help investors accumulate, preserve and transfer wealth through a collaborative and strategic approach. Not just wealth management…non-discriminatory wealth management.
Our private wealth management clients are selected based on the unique financial needs of their families, as opposed to specific targets for net worth. Many firms require private wealth management relationships to include only those families with a minimum net worth of $5,000,000 to $25,000,000.
Not at Oxford Harriman & Company.
A Collaborative Decision
We believe the decision to use sophisticated wealth management strategies should be a collaborative decision between client and advisor. As a result, we are capable of implementing strategies once only available to the “ultra-wealthy” for individuals and families who feel they require this type of service.
Our consultative approach to each relationship begins with understanding your unique financial needs, including your goals and tolerance for risk.
The Three Core Areas of Wealth Management
Each private wealth management relationship includes a strategic focus in the three core areas that define the progression of most investor’s financial lives:
- Wealth Accumulation
- Wealth Conservation
- Wealth Transfer
More focused initiatives include risk and investment management and liquidity planning through alternative investments, charitable giving, access to banking through Wells Fargo Affiliates and corporate executive services.
