Matthew L. Schultz

Co-Founder and Advisor

A registered representative since 2002, Matthew’s career began during a 3-year term at the Chicago Board Options Exchange with Knight Execution Partners (2000-2003). 6 years at JP Morgan Chase, and 5 years at Wells Fargo later,  Matthew decided it was time to leave his broker’s license behind and helped build 83rd Street with his friend and colleague Robert W. Burns.

After learning firsthand how large firms take advantage of their clients, Matthew has taken the most effective and ethical practices from each job and used them to develop an investment philosophy that not only produces results but is also based on honesty.

Matthew lives in South Barrington with his wife and children. When not working hard for his clients, Matthew enjoys coaching baseball, running a non-competitive mens softball league, and cheering for Chicago sports. In 2019, he raised money to build a school in Uganda through his board seat at Stepping Stones Foundation of Hope. Learn more at www.ssfoh.org

I can't expect a new client to trust me from the start. That's something I have to earn, but I can drop character clues by living a selfless and honest life. Because of my faith, military service, and volunteer experiences, I've picked up some pretty good life lessons and try to exemplify them daily.

—Matthew Schultz
