Matt grew up in Milton, a small town outside of Toronto. He attributes much of his success in life to values instilled in him by his parents, who taught him to work hard, act with integrity and always follow the golden rule, among many other lessons (Matt’s parents are both retired educators). Through his time as a varsity athlete at McMaster University and professional athlete in the Canadian Football League, Matt learned valuable lessons in teamwork, discipline and perseverance that he has applied in his professional life. Matt stumbled into value investing during his MBA and since then has been working to deepen and broaden his investor tool belt. Matt joined Burgundy in January 2018 and was attracted to the firm’s outstanding reputation for investment ability, professional integrity and putting clients' interests first.
