Founder's

Bio

I grew up in Garden City, KS.  Shortly after graduating high school I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserves.  I always had a deep commitment to serve my country and a profound respect for my grandfathers’ service in World War II.

After completing basic training, infantry training and specialty training I enrolled at Fort Hays State University.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts in History but later in my later college years I started reading finance and economics books.  This quickly turned into a passion for me.  After college I began building my portfolio with success.  I have a particular investment interest in Warren Buffett. I own over 50 books just alone on Mr. Buffett.  I also make the pilgrimage to hear him speak at his annual shareholder meeting in Omaha every year.

We’re Out to Change the Industry

Matt’s father passed away suddenly from a stroke at the age of 61. His mother did not handle the family’s finances and asked for his assistance. He quickly learned not all advisors are alike. Matt was really troubled by the advice his mother was receiving after his father’s passing.

This probably more than anything made him want to change the industry. Another contributing factor was the 2008-2009 crash. Seeing good hardworking people lose their life’s savings really alarmed him. Furthermore, witnessing veterans lose their life savings after serving multiple tours overseas really led him to believe that someone needed to have the client’s best interest at heart.
