Matthew J. Sotland, CFP
Managing Director - Investment Officer
Senior PIM Portfolio Manager
As a Managing Director - Investment Officer, I help manage assets for individuals, trusts, retirement plans, charitable organizations and businesses. Through a long-term investment approach, I help clients develop and implement strategies for building wealth and realizing their goals. My mission is to provide objective and timely financial advice and guidance — with the highest level of professional service — in building and preserving wealth for my clients.
I started my career at UBS Financial Services as a Financial Advisor and worked there 6 years before joining Wells Fargo Advisors. I hold two bachelor's degrees and a minor from the State University of New York at Buffalo. The two bachelor degrees are a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in International Business and a B.A. in Social Sciences with a concentration in International Studies with a minor in Chinese. With an emphasis on continuing education, I have also earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® practitioner certification from the College for Financial Planning. For this certification, I had to complete approved educational programs, pass rigorous examinations and meet stringent experience requirements.
I strive to help each one of my clients plan for a financial future in a way that best meets his or her goals. Active in the local community, I participate in many civic and community organizations, including Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of WNY, Habitat for Humanity, American Lung Association and the American Diabetes Association. My wife Casey and I live in the Village of East Aurora, NY.
