Patrick Walsh

CFP®

 

As a Partner and Senior Advisor in the firm, my primary role involves preparing for and delivering advice in client meetings. I also serve as Oxford’s Chief Compliance Officer.  

 


MY MISSION

 

My passion for this profession comes from the ability it gives me to empower clients to make their own informed financial decisions. This is not done through what I call the 3 P’s (Pontificating, Prognosticating, Product Sales), but instead by what Oxford calls the 3 C’s (Clarity, Confidence, Catalyst).

 

By starting with a well-thought-out, evidence-based financial planning process, we establish a working relationship where clients clearly understand what fees they are paying and what advice they are getting for that fee. This straightforward approach, coupled with our battle-tested Power of 5 Investing® system, allows me to coach clients through good markets and bad to make sure we have actionable strategies to reach their most cherished goals.

BACKGROUND

I was born and raised in Delhi, the first of four boys to Pat and Jane Walsh. I grew up in Our Lady of Victory Parish, while attending C.O. Harrison, Delhi Junior High, and eventually Oak Hills where I lettered in golf and baseball. I then moved on to Miami University, where I received a degree in Finance while also pitching for the nationally ranked conference champion club baseball program.

PERSONAL LIFE

I am lucky enough to have been with Marty since 2009, married since 2012. She is the Lead Teacher at the East End Adult Education Center, doing wonderful work to provide quality educational programs aimed at increasing students' basic literacy, academic, computer and job skills.

 

We have been blessed with Charlotte (2015), Patrick (2018) and Henry (2021) who are the joy of our lives! We also have an 11-year-old rescue dog named Bailey.

 

I still love to play competitive golf and softball, where I play for Jake’s Automotive/Tisch Environmental/Upscale Lawncare on Monday nights at Westside and in the Cincinnati Metro Tournament. I am an avid Notre Dame football and UC basketball fan and enjoy relaxing and spending time with friends and family.
