Matthew Torney | Partner
Qualifications & Memberships:
- Certified Financial Planner ®
- Bachelor of Commerce, Melbourne University
- Advanced Diploma Financial Planning
Returning to Muirfield in 2014, Matt has settled in to life as a Financial Planner in Geelong with his (growing) family. He brings a unique perspective to Muirfield, having worked on both the industry’s advice and business relationship sides for a number of years. Specialising in Superannuation, Investments, and Centrelink planning, Matt loves getting to know his clients and helping them to understand what matters most in retirement – the freedom to enjoy life free of financial concerns.
Growing up, Matt was torn between two childhood ambitions for his future: to chase a career in the AFL or to become a Financial Planner, like his father. Having been the Captain of the University Blues and playing in the Reserves for Geelong, Matt came very close to the earlier ambition and jokingly maintains that the competing dreams kept him from playing at the highest level.
In his spare time, Matt loves to spend time with his wife Emily, and daughter, Ella. A typical weekend involves a trip to the park, 1000 pushes on the swing and countless games of peek-a-boo. If his parenting duties permit, Matt enjoys playing golf, reading the weekend papers, a swim or run and some socialising.
In quirkier pursuits, Matt believes he would be a podium finisher in the Word Championships for reverse parallel parking and solving 9 letter word puzzles – he is still waiting for the invitation.
