Unwavering Ethics, Superior Discipline, & Unsurpassed Value


About Matthew Pixa

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.

FAQs

Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy?

We guarantee to match or beat your current advisor's fees by 25% or more!

Why should I choose you as my financial advisor?

I have 24 years of professional experience and have worked at several of the top firms on Wall Street. I earned a Bachelor in Economics at Cal State University, Long Beach. I earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at Arizona State University. Lastly, I am continually advancing my skills with coursework such as the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) curriculum via New York University.

What are your qualifications? What is your education background?

First and foremost I truly use my ears before I use my mouth. The most important factor in quality financial planning is to fully understand the goals of the client. For more details on our process, please visit our website at www.myportfolioguide.com

How are you compensated? How will I pay for your services?

I am solely compensated on a fee basis. All fees are charged in arrears on a quarterly basis and are a percentage of the assets under management.

If you are going to manage my account, will you obtain my permission every time you buy or sell something?

I have a team that supports me but I am proud to be the main point person and central to the overall relationship. We also have a Pacific Northwest Division which is led and supported by Matt Barton who is based in Portland. We serve clients nationwide but offer a single point of contact so that you are not treated like a number!
