MATTHEW RYPER, RIS
I began serving clients in 2006 and was first drawn to the financial industry because of the great need I saw all around me. I love the balance of working analytically but in a people business. Two ideas resonate with me and drive me to become better as I work with clients: “The little things add up” and “ 'Good enough' is just not good enough.”
When not working, I can be found pursuing outdoor adventures with my wife and daughter, making exceptional lattes and enjoying a glass of wine
For better or worse, business practices profoundly affect every aspect of our lives. I have always wanted to build a business that focuses on creating a positive, lasting impact for all of its stakeholders. That is why I studied socially responsible entrepreneurship in university, and work on the executive committee of a local union today. I find that as a broker in the financial industry, I can create long-term, positive change for my clients as well. When I’m not helping clients or fighting for workers’ rights, my wife and I will likely be hiking around a local lake enjoying the natural scenery here in BC.
I have been working at Solomon Financial since the beginning of 2021 but have been helping families and friends for the past six years on a part-time basis. I have had a 30+ year career in the Building Automation industry and currently work with analytics to make buildings operate more efficiently and improving occupant comfort. Since I was a teenager, I have had a fascination with how to get ahead financially and had tried several different approaches with varying degrees of success. It was not until I met someone who took the time to explain different strategies and help develop an overall plan. I listened and tried a few of these strategies with great success. After seeing how these concepts worked it has been my desire to assist others in getting to a similar place in their lives.
