MATT ILLIAN, CFP® | Advisor, Portfolio Manager, Analyst, Writer, Speaker, Affordable Housing Investor

My interest in moving from traditional investing to more integrated strategies that consider the common good grew out of a response to the needs that I witnessed in my own community in Richmond, VA for affordable housing, workforce development, and prosperity that offers benefits for all.  You can read more about this evolution here.

I am the father of three active boys and a little girl. My wife Catherine runs a bicycle tour company called Richmond Rides and the whole family prefers pedal-power transport.

Organizations I Support:

Virginia Impact Investment Forum (VIIF): As Managing Director, I serve with wonderful people who are committed to promoting impact investing efforts across Virginia.

Richmond Memorial Health Foundation (RMHF): I sit on the investment committee of this is a wonderful organization. Not only do I love the people involved, I've enjoyed being part of RMHF's commitment to mission alignment in our portfolio.

Business Alliance For Local Living Economies (BALLE): These ecosystem connectors are creating networks across the country and beyond to support economies that work for all people.
