Matthew Cherry

Financial Advisor

Matthew Rivera is sitting for his Certified Financial Planner CFP® to provide Investment Management, Financial Advice in Scottsdale and Phoenix

Matt is a native Arizonan, growing up in Tempe. He planted his roots deep, purchasing his first home in Chandler in 2014, with his beautiful wife, daughter, and of course, the lovable family dog. Becoming new parents in August 2017, Matt and his wife, Lindsey, have enjoyed experiencing the world through their daughter’s eyes. In his free time, he enjoys weekend trips to Mexico, game nights, or anything else that includes surrounding himself with loving family and friends.

 

Matt has always enjoyed staying active, from cycling, to hiking, to working out. One of his favorite accomplishments has been completing ‘America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride’ twice. This is a 100-mile Charity bike ride around Lake Tahoe, raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. After a severe back injury led to surgery, Matt thought his active days were over, but perseverance led him to his new passion, yoga. He will attest that his daily yoga practice is the only thing that keeps his body healthy enough to live a normal life and be the best husband and father that he can be.

 

Growing up in a world where it seemed like debt was a part of everyone’s life, Matt found himself following the same path. He worked his way out of debt, and decided that he wanted to learn more about how money worked, so he could share his passion to help others avoid the mistakes he made himself. He worked full-time overnight at Salt River Project (you may have heard his voice recording if you had a power outage in your area overnight), while going to school full-time during the day, sleeping in his car between classes. This lasted for well over two years until he received his BS in Finance with the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Go Devils! After graduation, Matt began working for a large retail brokerage firm, where he continued to build his knowledge of financial planning and investments. In June 2018, he accepted the role of Support Advisor at Wealth Management Solutions, and looks forward to helping our clients, striving to be a financial advisor in the not too distant future. He is currently studying for the Certified Financial Planner® designation.
