Matthew Lagoy, CFP®, CEPA®, CRPC®
Financial Advisor
About Matthew

Matt focuses on personalized wealth management and works with clients on their complete financial picture, ranging from investments and liability management to education, insurance and estate planning issues. Matt’s select group of clients include professionals and entrepreneurs and their families, retirees and small and mid-sized businesses.


Every client/advisor relationship is unique. For clients that choose to engage in an advisory relationship, it begins with a thorough information sharing session to determine what is most important to each client. A Net Worth Statement is produced, along with an “x-ray” of a client’s investments to determine his or her current asset allocation and risk levels. Matt and his team then use an advanced retirement modelling approach - a way for you to sit in the driver’s seat of your own retirement and personally test the fit and feel of a number of plans - to find the best one for you. These steps then become part of a client’s annual review.


Matt holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional certification as well as the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor℠ (CRPC®) designation. Matt also holds the Series 7, 66 and 31 registrations and is licensed to assist clients with their life insurance needs. He started his career at Morgan Stanley and joined Janney in 2017. Matt graduated from Gettysburg College with a degree in Business Management and Spanish, and studied abroad in Seville, Spain. In his free time, Matt enjoys spending time with his family and coaching his kids' sports teams. Matt lives in Glen Mills, PA with his wife, Jaime, and two children, Charlotte and Jack.
