About Matt Ebeling

Matt has over twenty years helping clients prudently plan for their financial future and implement sound investment strategies. His wealth management career began in 2001 at First Independent Bank's trust department, where he was a securities specialist and portfolio manager. Prior to joining FVIM (2016), he spent nine years at Fisher Investments. There, he was an investment counselor for high-net-worth investors across the U.S.

Along with holding an MBA and a bachelor's degree in business management and marketing, Matt is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER and a NAPFA-registered financial advisor.

On a personal note, Matt is married to Kim and has three children: Jewels, Myah and Chase. The Ebelings have called Vancouver home since 2001 where they love exploring the many outdoor adventures the Pacific Northwest offers. They have had the privilege to build relationships with many refugee families that have come to Vancouver, coach little league baseball, and volunteer at Meals on Wheels.

Financial Services

Financial Advice & Consulting

In addition to managing your investment portfolio, our wealth management services include retirement planning, financial planning, input regarding your non-investment assets, debt structure, insurance coverage, and other financial decisions. Like a company's Chief Financial Officer, we serve as your personal CFO, to help you maximize your overall, after-tax net worth. Both our investment management and wealth management-related services as described are covered under your one, transparent quarterly fee, as mentioned above.

Retirement Planning

From when you can retire to how much money you'll need, we can help answer the questions that have been on your mind. We'll help coordinate cash flow from your investments to supplement other sources of income such as Social Security, pensions, and part-time positions. Additionally, we'll implement a customized investment strategy that is in line with your preferred risk tolerance and timeframe. Throughout your time with us, we'll help ensure all tax implications are thoroughly considered before executing any of our recommendations.

Investment Advice & Management

When you work with us, we'll cut straight to the point of investing: How do your investments apply to you and your life? We'll show you how to patiently pursue expected returns while managing the risks involved. By wrapping efficient investing around your greatest personal goals, we'll help you filter out the noise and make relevant financial decisions for you.


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

We are a fee-only advisor firm, with quarterly billing in arrears, calculated as a percentage of overall managed assets. Typically, our fee is automatically deducted directly from your investment account(s) under management. We submit a copy of your bill to you each quarter. You'll also receive separate monthly account statements from your independent asset custodian, so you can verify that our billing meets your expectations. We serve families with an average of $1,000,000 in investable assets. Our fees are as follows: 1.1% percent/year, up to $500,000 AUM. 0.9% percent/year, $500,000 to $1 million AUM. 0.7% percent/year for $1 million to $5 million AUM. 0.5% percent/year for $5+ million AUM.

Will you be the only person working with me?

In addition to working with our Advisors, you also have access to our operations and client service specialists. Each of us is dedicated to meeting your needs in a manner that is meaningful and relevant to you. We realize that each relationship is unique. Therefore, as a team, we strive to understand you and your priorities.

What services do you offer?

Investment Management, Retirement Planning, Financial Planning, and Tax Planning.

How long does the process of rolling over a 401K plan usually take?

Typically the process can take 2-3 weeks.

What financial institutions do you represent?

All our revenue comes directly from our clients. We do not represent any financial institution.
