We’re excited to announce that we’ve welcomed a new partner advisor to Hardworking Capital! Effective August 14, Matt Mellier joined the team.
Matt is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and brings with him nearly 20 years of experience in financial services. Born and raised in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, he graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy. He studied and received his Financial Planning Certificate from Boston University. He initially worked as a broker, then as a professional Equities and Futures Trader. Matt is a former Member of the Chicago Board of Trade where he traded the Cash Bond and Treasury Futures markets. He later went on to work for the New York Stock Exchange and eventually Thomson Reuters where he worked with some of the brightest and most sophisticated minds on Wall Street.
After a decade of Chicago winters, he and his wife Amy decided it was time to get back to the warmth and sun of Southern California. Adventurous spirits, their bucket list gets shorter every year as they travel frequently (having already run with the bulls in Spain and gone bobsledding in Switzerland). Matt enjoys playing golf and following sports…from NFL to NHL.
I was first introduced to Matt over a year ago. After getting to know each other on a professional and personal level, we realized that our approaches and philosophies were very similar and we felt that we would make a great team working together.
We look forward to introducing you to Matt in the months ahead!
