The Family Business - 65 Years in the Making
Fred Matarazzo's journey into the world of trusted financial professionals began in his youth, as he observed the profound bond that developed between his father and the family's dependable accountant. Inspired by the positive impact this financial expert had on his family, Fred harbored a desire to assist others in a similar manner. This aspiration led him to pursue higher education at the prestigious Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where he honed his skills and eventually became a Certified Public Accountant in 1960.
As Fred's accounting practice flourished, he recognized a growing need among his clients for comprehensive financial guidance. In response to this demand, he made the pivotal decision to expand his firm's services. Pioneering the way, Fred became one of the nation's earliest Certified Financial Planners, further cementing his commitment to helping individuals and families navigate their financial journeys.
In 1990, a new chapter unfolded as Al Matarazzo, Fred's son, joined his father in this noble endeavor. Together, they transformed a modest accounting practice into a singular hub for comprehensive financial services. Fred Matarazzo firmly believed that selecting the right financial partner is one of life's most significant decisions, and this guiding principle continues to be our cornerstone today.
We stand by you every step of the way, offering unwavering support and expertise throughout life's many changes, just as Fred envisioned all those years ago.
