Cornerstone is not your traditional financial planning office. The firm’s mission is rooted in the goal of fostering long-term relationships with our clients founded on trust. We believe that we do more than manage wealth; we strive to be our clients’ most trusted advisor working through the ordinary and extraordinary challenges they face. We are big enough to handle our clients’ needs but small enough to keep the relationship personalized.
The Cornerstone culture shapes our interactions with clients, the community, and even our internal dynamic. You may not find a suit and tie at Cornerstone, but you will find a culture of excellence and dedication to client service. Our supportive work environment enables the members of our team to work together to provide a personalized experience. We may look casual from the outside, but our practice is supported with passion and conviction.
In 2003, Matt Riesenweber started his investment career with Waddell & Reed in Kennewick, WA, and quickly hired his mom, Winette. Over the years the team continued to grow and, in 2015, they left to start the independent wealth management firm of Cornerstone Wealth Strategies, Inc. In 2018 Cornerstone became a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm which has allowed us to streamline our business structure. As Cornerstone has grown, the team continues to expand to meet our clients’ needs by adding experienced, trusted professionals with whom we have valued relationships.
The Cornerstone team is a tight knit group that cares not only about our clients but also about the community as a whole. Within the team you will find multiple Certified Financial Planners (CFP®), a lawyer*, licensed individuals, and proficient support staff. Individually, our team members donate their time, either by serving on boards of local non-profit organizations or volunteering in other capacities. Our team believes that philanthropy strengthens our community and supports important causes.
