Matthew Bonadona has always been fascinated with investing and proper money management habits. He grew up watching both his parents and grandparents own their own businesses, which ignited his entrepreneurial spirit at a young age. He is passionate about helping small business owners and individuals develop a “blueprint” to pursue their financial goals.
Over the past decade, Matthew has developed a vast knowledge of insurance, estate planning, and financial services and uses his knowledge to guide his clients to portfolios that are suited to them.
After graduating from Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana, Matthew began his financial advisory career with Ameriprise Financial and moved to Woodbury Financial Services to become an independent representative in 2008. He is currently a financial advisor at Cohesion Wealth Advisors, where he provides independent investment advice to his clients. He has used his past experience to build a firm that offers a high level of investment and tax advice to families and individuals throughout his community. He is passionate about helping others and at Cohesion Wealth Advisors, he is able to do just that — foster multigenerational relationships based on trust, respect, and integrity.
Matthew believes in helping those in and around his community, both in and out of the office. He has coordinated charitable dinners during the holidays for unfortunate children and participated in multiple cook-offs benefiting various Louisiana towns. Matthew is always on the lookout for fun and creative ways to raise awareness for others in need.
While living in Louisiana, he was an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and a leader with Nicholls State University’s Young Entrepreneur Program, developed to help high school juniors and seniors in constructing their own businesses. Matthew has had multiple speaking engagements at local universities to teach young people about the complex world of entrepreneurship and taking control of their own career path.
Outside of investing and management, Matthew is a huge sports fan and dedicates a lot of time to the gym and sporting activities. Being from Louisiana, Matthew is a “certified” exquisite Cajun cook and enjoys sharing his creations with friends and family. He is an outdoorsman with a particular passion for fishing that was passed on to him by his father.
Matthew resides in Allen, Texas with his beautiful and supportive wife, Sheena Adams Bonadona, CPA, MBA, his young son Aiden, and his Golden Retriever, Buddie.
