About


Shonty Spatola, CFP, CPA Photo

Shonty Spatola, CFP, CPA

As a CPA, I started my financial services career in Public Accounting where I worked on complex income tax and financial statement matters.  My professional experience, education, entrepreneurial spirit, and passion for providing objective advice allowed me to start my firm.  We specialize in personalized financial plans, income tax planning and investment management.    I am your primary point of contact for personal financial matters.

I have over 15 years of experience and specialize in Investment Management, Financial Planning, Retirement Planning, Tax Preparation Tax Planning and Accounting.

I'm a Los Angeles native, when I'm not immersed in financial planning, I enjoy traveling and fitness. 

iconOne Stop for All Financial Needs

Being CPAs makes us better financial planners. The fundamental knowledge that CPAs have, especially in the tax area, married with the training and subject areas of the CFP makes a very powerful combination. With this, we specialize in the areas of Tax, Investments, Insurance, and Financial Planning.

We are a fiduciary; therefore, we always place the client first. Our advice is objective and unbiased as we formulate financial and tax planning goals to meet the client's best interest.

We aim to develop long term relationships with our clients. We help individuals navigate financial, tax and economic news to better prepare and prosper during good times, as well survive during economic downturns. We’ll be a consistent partner through the good and the bad, and make sure you are as prepared as possible for both.

Invest in Your Future Self. You Won't Regret It

Services


We’ll look at your entire financial picture and help you fit the pieces together properly.


Whether you are just setting out on your financial journey, or seeking to protect what you have already created, we can guide you along the way. Substantial savings often result from better planning, and specifically, tax planning. As a CPA, I have an increased focus on taxes and their impact in all investment and financial planning decisions.  

What's Included:

Services include two to four initial meetings, two to four review meetings per year, and year-round telephone and email support.

Our objective in creating investment portfolios is to seek out low cost, tax advantaged and high quality securities.


Investing is a long- term endeavor. Most of us aim to build wealth over time, but it can be challenging. Here at Pacific Oak Wealth Management, we believe it is necessary to have a clear sense of why you are investing in the first place, and then stick with a disciplined investment strategy. 

What's Included:

Everyone is different, so we create a tailored investment plan based on your individual needs and circumstances. Your tolerance for risk and goals for your life are the two main ingredients that go into making your plan uniquely yours. All new engagements include an initial investment meeting, where we will meet to explain investing terms, risks, and asset allocation. This is also when we will establish your individual risk tolerance. 

Taxes - Don't Pay More Than You Have To


Our financial planning and investment recommendations always consider ways to invest more tax-efficiently within your existing accounts, and we'll recommend the most tax-efficient savings vehicles for your personal situation.

Shonty's extensive public accounting experience provides the firm with a unique focus on taxes and their impact in all investment and financial planning decisions.

Tax preparation services for individuals, businesses and trusts provided by our sister company, Spatola & Company CPA.
