  • Tax Planning
    The tax legislation passed late in 2017 changes the tax treatment of the various legal structures businesses use significantly.
  • Risk Management
    Most individuals need to plan for the financial risk of early death, disability, illness and infirmity, and liability or loss related to property ownership.
  • Retirement Planning
    It’s not uncommon for business owners to assume they will never retire. After all, they’re presumably doing what they love, so why not continue indefinitely?
  • Investment Planning
    Most small businesses are self-financed by their owners, which results in the business becoming the owner’s major or only investment.

Financial Life Focus, LLC

We practice Financial Life Planning, which means our team begins with getting exquisitely clear about what you value most. Because until we deeply understand how you want your life to go, we can’t—and won’t—make a single financial recommendation.

Of course the numbers matter, but they don’t exist in a vacuum. They’re there to serve you. To help create the life that thrills you and your family. We are a fee-only, fiduciary Registered Investment Advisor. That means we are legally required to put your interests before any others. Our ONLY compensation is from our clients.

Once we’ve agreed to move forward, we’ll go over your financial information to get a picture of where you are right now. Then we’ll draft a financial life plan—a blueprint for your money life—based on the goals that matter most to you.

You may have a demanding job or business. Or, you might be less focused on work and more on the rest of your life. You may even find yourself in a challenging money situation that feels embarrassing (we don’t believe in shame).

Unlike many advisors, we don’t just serve the wealthy. We work with those who are looking to grow their careers, their relationships and, ultimately, the quality of their life.

To be a great fit, you’ll want us to be candid with you—to be able to tell you when there is a gap between your words and your actions. (Like when continuing your current spending means you’ll have to delay your planned retirement by two years.)

Hudson Oak Wealth Advisory

At Hudson Oak we look to be nimble and flexible, always moving forward as a river yet with strong, grounded roots of an oak tree to appreciate our beginnings.

We believe our firm offers a smarter path forward in wealth management designed to provide you with the higher standard for your wealth that you deserve. To learn more, please select an item below or from the menu above.

We felt that by offering his unique skillset to a broader potential client base, that we could make a better difference in the advisory industry and the lives of others. Thus, Hudson Oak was founded as a truly comprehensive wealth management firm with the skills of a large firm but within an independent, transparent and conflict-free model.

At Hudson Oak we strive for our clients to become our partners and ensure their needs are heard. In our past experience prior to founding Hudson Oak, we were in meetings at large firms where the advisory team would dominate a meeting and there hardly seemed to be any room for the client to participate at the table.

This is not that model. We succeed when our clients do, and we believe the only way for that success is through trust and a deep, broad encompassing relationship with you as the focal point.

Neil Grossman has served his clients as an independent, fee-based financial planner since 1994. Since that time, he has worked with dozens of individuals and families, helping them reach their financial goals

Mr. Grossman graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1988 and has been a financial advisor since 1989, first (primarily) for governmental entities and, since 1994, for individuals. He has been a Certified Financial Planner since 1997.

A Comprehensive Financial Plan (the “Plan”) is a thorough review of all aspects of your financial life. In order to develop this Plan, in-depth discussions will be held regarding your financial goals, worries… in short, where you want to go.

These would include the more “obvious”, such as saving for college tuitions, retirement, etc. It will also, however, deal with more abstract ideas… what does “retirement” mean (volunteer work? a new career? a vacation home or relocation?), what do you want to leave for your children (both financial and non-financial considerations)?

Many people call themselves “financial advisors” or even “financial planners”. Unfortunately, there is no licensing requirement or standards which must be maintained. Therefore, it is critical that clients understand exactly the background, experience and expertise, and compensation structure of their financial professional.
