Investment Advisor

As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Matthew Theal, CFP®

Fee-only financial planner located in Claremont, CA, serving clients throughout the Inland Empire and Southern California.

Matthew Theal is a Claremont, CA fee-only financial planner. RPA Wealth Management provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Matthew Theal is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Matthew grew up with a passion for investing. He opened his first investment account at age 16, went to college for a degree in finance, and moved to New York City to work in the nation’s investing epicenter. But even though he gained invaluable career experience in NYC, he didn’t see the East Coast as his home.

Today, Matthew is back in California and helping RPA’s clients achieve their vision for the future. He thrives on the educational aspect of his work as a financial planner, combining it with his experience in investment analysis, trading, and portfolio management. 

He has worked alongside RPA’s founder to build the business and has loved the experience from day one—particularly the direct impact he gets to have on clients’ lives. To that end, Matthew went back to school and attained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.
