With a lifelong commitment to continuous growth, Wealth Advisor Matthew Rivera is constantly looking for new and better ways to serve his clients and the Vance Wealth team – so everyone can achieve more.
Born and raised in Burbank, Matthew stayed local while growing up, before going on to earn his associate’s degree in business administration from San Diego Mesa College and his bachelor’s degree in finance from California State University, Fullerton. After completing his Series 7 and 66 licenses, Matthew accepted a position as a financial representative at Fidelity Investments, where he spent five years learning and growing in his roles and responsibilities. As a Planning Consultant, Matthew partnered with Vice President, Financial Consultant’s to serve the firm’s private client base and provide support to both clients and advisors alike.
Following his experience with Fidelity, Matthew’s role as a Wealth Advisor for Vance Wealth seemed like the natural next step. He currently combines his experience in retirement planning with his education in business administration to serve business owners, as well as anyone focused on planning a happy and fulfilling retirement. He most enjoys working within the firm’s collaborative, team-based environment because it allows him to learn and grow from other advisors every single day. Never content with staying stagnant, Matthew constantly strives to improve his skills and is currently working toward becoming a Certified Financial Planner™.
When Matthew isn’t working toward his professional goals, he can be found spending time with his girlfriend and her daughter. As local foodies, they love trying new places and dishes, just as much as they like returning to their favorite restaurants whenever possible. During his downtime, he enjoys watching all types of sports or planning their next weekend getaway.
