Matthew Papandrea, CFP®

Appalachian State University, B.S.B.A., Management and International Business Certified Financial Planner™
How  I  arrived  at  RWM
“I began my career in finance at Vanguard in 2008 before the financial crisis. I worked in several roles as a Broker, Manager and after earning my CFP® , I became a Financial Advisor. I wanted to be able to provide my clients with a more holistic approach to Financial Planning than just focusing on client investments. This led me to the bevy of blogs, podcasts and videos created by the great minds at Ritholtz. I thought of this firm as the “gold standard”; and after meeting Michael Batnick, one thing led to another and here I am. I’m excited to be a part of such a great team.”
Favorite  part  of  the  job
“Building meaningful relationships with clients and helping them to achieve their goals. When they win, I win.”
When  I’m  Not  Working
“I love spending time with my wife, Meredith, son, Mason and our Golden Retriever named Cornbread. We like to travel to the mountains and the beach in the Carolinas when we get the time. I enjoy playing old man basketball at a local church early on Saturday mornings.”
