Oakdale Group of Companies, LLC. is a Houston, Texas based financial services firm that assists owners of mid-sized businesses to better manage their company’s finances.
We believe that a fragmented approach to financial services is detrimental to both the owner and the business. Financial stability is better maintained when perspectives are shared between financial advisors, accountants, lenders and insurance professionals. This synergy of financial services decreases errors, presents opportunities and increases return on investment.
By providing key financial services under one roof, Oakdale Group maximizes financial opportunity and creates savings for mid-sized clients. Business owners also have the added benefit of working with one vendor, reducing duplication and administrative burden.
