Founder - Pillar One Financial & Insurance Solutions CA Insurance License 0J15166

Hi! I’m Matt. I founded Pillar One Financial & Insurance Solutions because I saw an under-served sector of the population who needed help. The belief that one must accept high levels of market risk to sustain retirement savings has left many in fear of losing what took a lifetime to build. As an experienced financial services professional, I founded the organization with the knowledge that better methods exist, and that the first pillar of a sound financial structure is protection.

In addition to years of industry experience, I am a Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®), I possess dual Master’s Degrees, and I have taught professionally at the college level. The ChFC® designation is considered one of the most prestigious and highly respected designations in the financial planning industry. ChFC® certificate holders are educated on the essentials of comprehensive financial planning, including planning for families with special needs dependents, planning for divorce, planning for clients in diverse communities, retirement planning, estate planning, small business planning, income taxation, investments, insurance, and more. 

Moreover, as a former educator, I have a different approach than most financial professionals. At Pillar One Financial & Insurance Solutions, we give high priority to learning the details of clients’ overall life situations and, in return, educating them on their options in way they can understand. We believe in working together with clients to develop comprehensive solutions while empowering them to make educated decisions. This approach allows our clients to take charge of their financial futures and gives them a firm confidence in the path forward. If you think we can be of service in any way, or even if you just have a question, please contact us at your convenience. We would be happy to hear from you!
