About Ragnarok Capital

Hi, I’m Matt.

I spent the first 17 years of my professional career as a television producer and director, specializing in Comedy and Reality. I produced and directed series like The Jenny Jones Show, Trading Spaces, and even doing some work for Jerry Seinfeld.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the nearly two decades I spent working in the Entertainment Industry, in 2014 I decided to hang up my spurs and began a new career in investments. I began working in Commercial Real Estate specializing in investment properties, and quickly worked my way up to Senior Vice President of Investments at my firm.

In 2019, I was recruited by several large investment firms, and eventually decided to join Edward Jones as a Financial Advisor. In my first year at Jones, I brought in considerably more assets than all the other first year advisors in my region, and was quickly promoted to run the Highland Park branch…arguably the most affluent area in all of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

In early 2021, I came to the conclusion that in order for me to best serve my clients, I needed the type of freedom and autonomy that no large firm would be willing to offer their advisors.

Feeling that I could no longer provide the service that my clients deserved, I resigned from Jones and launched Ragnarok Capital Investments 2 months later. Jonesy (my service dog, named after my previous employer) was the first to join me, and shortly after, Cherlyn White, the assistant I had at the Highland Park branch, resigned and joined me as well.

Every large firm in the country teaches their advisors to manage their clients’ expectations to be in line with the results they deliver. I founded Ragnarok under the premise that we need to manage our results to be in line with our clients’ expectations. Most firms pride themselves on offering thousands of approaches to your investments that we believe to be mediocre. We offer only handful of approaches that we believe to be exceptional.

Ultimately, we manage our clients’ life savings. It is a responsibility that we take extraordinarily seriously, and work hard to protect and grow those assets safely, responsibly, and effectively.
