Who We Are

We believe that providing exceptional service and personalized wealth planning through cultivating deeper relationships goes beyond investments to enrich our clients’ lives.


Matt Casey, CFP®

I entered the financial planning business to help people and provide them with the highest level of personal service. Ten years of prior sales experience taught me the value of building strong relationships, founded on mutual trust and understanding clients’ needs. I wanted knowledge that went beyond investments: a holistic approach, including insurance, tax, estate, and philanthropic needs. Upon receiving my FINRA series 7, 66, 24 held through LPL Financial and state insurance licenses, I obtained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification that gave me the added confidence to be a trusted advisor for my clients.

American industrialist and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie said: “Here is the prime condition of success: concentrate your energy, thought, and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged.”  My energy, thought, capital, and experience are concentrated upon my clients’ success, now and in the future.

At Oakland Wealth Group, we exist to provide exceptional service to our clients and strive to help them reach their fullest potential in life. As a wealth management group, we tailor our financial planning to the unique circumstances and values of each client: individual, family, or business.  My rewards are the client relationships and the satisfaction of improving their quality of life through personalized wealth planning.
