Live Retirement with Confidence: Oxford Advisory Group 

In the highly fast-paced world we live in, financial advisors play a crucial role in helping individuals and businesses manage their financial affairs. Financial advisors possess specialized knowledge in areas such as investment strategies, tax planning, retirement planning, estate planning, and risk management. Their expertise will help clients navigate complex financial decisions. Similarly, a certified retirement financial advisor is a professional who has obtained a certification demonstrating expertise in retirement planning and financial advising specifically tailored to retirement-related matters. Certified retirement financial advisors are equipped to provide comprehensive retirement planning services. They will clients assess their current financial standing, set retirement goals, and help create a personalized plan to achieve those goals swiftly. This can include strategies for saving, investing, and managing income during retirement.

Globally, there are various entities delivering excellent retirement financial advisory services, but Oxford Advisory Group stands out from the rest. The Founders, Christopher and Samuel Dixon, brothers, have gone through tough personal experiences with family members having poor advice that led to detrimental financial consequences in retirement. Primarily because of tax complications. The brothers have spent their careers focusing on tax-efficient planning to help others avoid these types of situations. They have a goal now to help as many families as possible with some of the most overlooked items in retirement planning. Oxford focuses on tax-focused retirement planning, high-net-worth family services, retirement income, and related hurdles such as RMD planning.
