Our investment Approach...

  • Top Down

    We begin by analyzing key global economic factors. Then, we determine which specific sectors will benefit from emerging trends.
  • Qualitive

    We believe that investing is an art, not a science. Therefore, we employ qualitative analysis based on the fundamental characteristics of individual securities.
  • Long-Term

    We take a buy-and-hold approach to investing. We don’t confuse motion with progress. Because this style requires patience, we generally buy securities with a long-term time horizon, resulting in relatively low portfolio turnover.
  • Hands-On

    In evaluating potential investment opportunities, our research team takes a hands-on approach that includes visits to company locations and discussions with company management.
  • Focused

    We believe that in order to outperform the broad markets, it is important to concentrate on our best ideas and remain focused on our core-growth discipline.

Oak Associates Funds include seven no-load equity mutual funds, available to institutions, retirement plans, investment professionals, and individual investors.
