OUR APPROACH Lateral Investment Management manages the Niagara Credit Income Fund where investors have the choice of a 5, 6, or 8% income with quarterly distributions and risk mitigation by a first-loss subordinated tranche.

The Fund has not missed a quarterly distribution since its inception in 2013. Lateral manages fixed income and private equity strategies that seek to help investors diversify their portfolios from public market volatility while generating consistent quarterly cash returns. Lateral invests in growing, established private businesses in the US through senior secured loans and minority equity stakes.

Our funds exclusively serve institutional investors, qualified purchasers and accredited investors.

About Lateral Investment Management

The firm provides growth capital to non-sponsored, lower- middle market companies through the direct origination of short-term loans and minority equity stakes. Our private market strategies focus on investing in lower-middle market firms that have limited capital availability due to the structural dislocation in the US capital markets. We partner with owner-operators who have high conviction in their future outlook and want the support of an institutional investor without the loss of control and dilution of a traditional private equity partner. Lateral is an SEC registered firm* with approximately $450MM in assets under management. The company is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and has an office in New York City.

My name is Sam and I've been working at RTA & Associates for almost 9 years.  Ive always had a drive and passion for working in this industry ever since I was a member of the business academy in high school.  It was then that I realized this career path would give me the opportunity to help clients reach their financial goals  while simultaneously helping me reach mine.  After high school, I studied business administration at the University of La Verne.  While at the University of La Verne, I played basketball for the school for three seasons, and was elected as the team captain.  My experiences from college taught me that with hard work and a team oriented focus, there is no limit on the successes you are able to accomplish.  I have carried that with me into this organization, and Im constantly trying to use my talents  to help grow this company, while providing our existing clients with ongoing support and strategy.  Throughout the years, I have taken on many different roles in this organization, which I think has made me very well rounded as a financial planner and a better team member.  Now my experience has lead me to manage our wealth management division of Adams & Associates Wealth Management.  I am excited for this role in our company, and eager to strategize with each individual client on customized financial plans that best fits them personally.

Matthew V. Pixa is the President and founder of My Portfolio Guide, LLC. Matt Pixa grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and at a very young age learned from a World War II Veteran father who grew up in the Great Depression that money and resources are to be managed prudently. Matt's curiosity and passion for investing was further sparked during the stock market crash of 1987. Being a new investor without any guidance and coupled with the dramatic events of that period, an interest and passion for becoming a student of the markets was born. Matt studied Economics and earned a Bachelor's degree while also competing as a student-athlete for California State University Long Beach. After advancing his career for 12 years he decided to return to graduate school and further his business and finance education by earning an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Matt Pixa lives in Seal Beach, CA with his wife Cecilia, daughter Isabel, and son Lance. As a family the Pixas are involved in several Orange County charities, through their church at Saint Joseph, and with several non-profits such as Care for the Poor and Taller San Jose. Matt enjoys coaching youth sports for his children's teams and also competes in Ironman triathlons as a way to stay fit, disciplined, and blow off any left over energy.

I was raised in Santa Paula, California, in the 70's and 80's with two siblings and loving parents who owned a small local business. In the late 80' and early 90's I attended and graduated from college with a degree in business administration. Shortly after graduation my father passed away unexpectedly and left my mom financially in despair. My dad was my rock. He was always there for me and I knew that whatever I did in my life, if I fell, he would be there for me. After he passed, I realized that it was all up to me to support myself and my mom. So that's when I decided to pursue a full-time career in financial services to help ensure that other families have a more certain financial future. Becoming a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and specializing in retirement planning and widows has been very fulfilling for me and our firm and is my passion. I have been involved with or supported Care Givers, Goodwill, Food Share, The Boys & Girls Club of Ventura, Ventura Missionary Church, Santa Paula Animal Rescue (SPARC), and City Center. My wife Alissa and I have 2 children and I enjoy travel and tennis. This is a little bit about me. If you decide to work with Skeels & Fox Wealth Management, I look forward to learning more about you, your family, and your interests. Remember, "Don't Stop Believin" in your dreams and goals!

About JKL Wealth Management

The most rewarding times for our Firm happen when we're seeing the families we work with realizing their true joy and happiness in their personal retirement journey. My Career spans 25 years plus of managing family's investments and retirement planning. My experience through the finical crisis as a branch manager overseeing more than 20 advisors, and thousands of clients with billions of dollars, gave me an experience I never could have attained simply as an advisor. I saw what worked and more importantly what did not work during the worst financial crisis in our lifetimes. The lessons were very difficult at the time but very constructive for the disciplines I utilize for my clients. This is how we developed our Floor Income Plan. The process is designed to prevent clients from having to sell assets in a down market to meet their retirement income needs. This safety and security allows them to reach for their aspirational and enrichment goals both holistically and financially in their familys lives.
