Our Story

Matson Money is a multi-generational Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) company founded in 1991 by Mark Matson.

Early in his career in finance, Mark discovered that he could not abide the ethics of an industry where advisors are paid commissions to invest clients’ money in ways that amount to gambling and speculation.

With a strong conviction that there must be a better way, he opened Matson Money, a fee-based RIA whose investment philosophy is rooted in economic theory originating from the Chicago school, especially the Nobel Prize winning research of Harry Markowitz (who serves on Matson Money’s academic board), Eugene Fama, and other leading economists.

Since that time, Matson Money has grown from $0 to approximately $8 billion in assets under management. The Company was an early adopter of so-called ‘passive management’ approaches that are finally beginning to gain much wider acceptance within the financial industry.
