Matt Heine was the fifth employee to join Netwealth in July 2001 – an ASX-listed financial services and technology company started by his family to service investors and the financial planning industry.
The Melbourne-based company was founded in 1999 and is now led by Matt and his father Michael as joint managing directors. With 18 + years of wealth management experience, Matt drives strategy, product, innovation and growth initiatives across the business in addition to overseeing sales, marketing, product and technical services.
Netwealth is not owned or aligned with any banks or other financial services groups and has become one of the fastest-growing wealth management businesses in Australia. It is rated No.1 for customer satisfaction and analysts continually rate their technology as best-in-class*.

Matt is passionate about improving the lives of Australians, specifically their financial education. He champions Netwealth’s partnership with Banqer – a virtual classroom economy where school children can learn to earn, save, spend and invest their money. He aims to create financial literacy and capability across the country and 8,500 students, ages between 8 and 12 currently use the program with a goal of 15,000 a year.
