The new 50,000-square-foot space, located at 18760 N. Pima Rd., was named “Matson Money West” and is designed to create an investing destination for financial advisers, clients and guests to share the amazing power of capitalism, free markets and structured investing. The new location includes two pieces of the Berlin Wall, which symbolize capitalism, and will also feature a Free Market Museum for investors to visit and admire.
The new office’s grand opening comes nearly two years after Mark Matson, CEO of Matson Money, initially moved the company, along with 20 employees and their families, to the Scottsdale area from Mason, Ohio.
The new location is expected to bring thousands of advisers to Matson Money West each year, helping to spur local economic activity. The company has already hired 10 new local employees and plans to aggressively add to its headcount over the next few years.
“We’re thrilled to have been embraced by the city of Scottsdale and the entire state of Arizona,” said Matson. “We’re confident this building will offer us the space necessary to teach our adviser clients to become true coaches for investing consumers. At the end of the day, we all have only one retirement to prepare for and live, and I am here to help us each achieve the best one possible.”
For more than 25 years, Mark Matson has coached advisers one-on-one and in workshop programs. His coaching programs are designed to challenge advisers to rethink their delivery of client service and how they manage client assets. Matson Money provides training to advisers on how to market and run their firms, serve clients in a more efficient manner and manage client assets using the prudent, conservative principles of strategic allocation and diversification.
