Voracious Reader. Philanthropist. Ally.

Matt has a unique, global perspective on investing that he gained from nearly two decades on the trading desk and from studying abroad.

Matt’s desire to make a positive difference, both in his clients’ lives and in the community, is evident both in and outside the office.

When asked what makes the Fortis investment philosophy stand apart from other wealth management firms, Matt shared:

“Our goal is to provide clients with an unbiased roadmap for investing, minimizing emotional influences and focusing on the factors that they — and we, together — can control.”
