Financial Advisor Overview

A Team of Professionals Committed to Saving You Time. Burns Matteson Capital Management is a team of professionals dedicated to helping our clients reclaim time from their busy lives, and to provide peace-of-mind as your independent and objective counsel on all financial matters. Our clients have been very successful in their careers and with accumulating assets, but they lack the time (or desire) necessary for monitoring their appreciating wealth on a day-to-day basis. This can create a sense of worry and frustration, when you should be enjoying the success you have achieved. We work with our clients to get a sense of their goals and values (both financial and non-financial) and then use our resources, processes, and team members to help our clients make the most appropriate financial decisions possible.
