My Story and Services

Matthew Parker is a Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager at Morgan Stanley. Matt has more than 20 years of experience investing in the markets. His focus is on long term wealth management plans that integrate traditional market research with rigorous due diligence and has earned the trust of clients who understand both the inherent risks of the market but also the long term benefits.

The depth of Matt’s experience has enabled him to help manage his client’s assets through a range of market conditions, including the Tech Bubble, the 2008 Financial Crisis , Brexit and the Long Term Capital Management implosion, to name a few.

“Every crisis ends” says Parker, whose growth oriented portfolio’s goal is long term Alpha. “My approach looks for industries and companies with secular growth that can be augmented with cyclical and tactical opportunities.”

Due to the events of the last 20+ years, Matt believes investors have pulled away from risk, with investors unwilling/unable to do the research to create Alpha. Matt thrives on doing the work to help his clients grow their assets while providing a steady hand through all market environments. His practice includes sophisticated investors, multi-generational families and ultra-high net worth individuals.

Matt is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts. He and his wife live in New York City with their two sons Jacob and Alec. In his spare time, Matt enjoys golf, softball, coaching his sons in football and basketball and hanging out with his dogs Bailey and Sammi.
