Matthew Ure is President of the San Antonio, TX office of Anthony Capital, LLC. Working with Dave Anthony as an Investment Advisor Representative (IAR), he serves clients in both government and private sector to provide them with a promising financial future. Living in San Antonio though, otherwise known as Military City, he has become especially expert in optimizing the retirement outlook of Military and Federal Employees. Matthew is an avid learner and believes that life should be lived attaining as much knowledge as one possibly can. As such, providing clients a comprehensive financial education is pinnacle to his career. He has taught hundreds of seminars touching on subjects ranging from debt solutions, investing, Social Security, pensions, and various forms of insurance.
After meeting with a number of Federal Employees Matthew recognized a huge need for benefits education and basic financial planning training amongst government personnel. To serve this need, he founded Federal Benefits and Retirement, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Federal Employees better understand and maximize their benefits.
Matthew received an associates degree from Dixie State University and then went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree from Brigham Young University, where he earned over an additional 240 credits in a wide variety of subjects. Matthew has taken numerous post-graduate courses including a 4 month stint in Medical School. It was there that his background in finance got the best of him and after conducting a cost to benefit analysis, he decided the $750,000 price-tag and 10 years it would take to earn a medical degree was just not worth it. He instead joined his father and two of his brothers in what was always his best subject in school: finance. He is so glad he did! Apart from formal education, Matthew served a two-year mission for his church in Thailand. He still speaks fluent Thai and enjoys traveling to Southeast Asia whenever the occasion permits. Matthew is also the 8th of 11 children, which he will tell you was an education in and of itself.
When Matthew is not working you will find him spending time with his beautiful wife and his three rambunctious little boys. Like a true Texan, he enjoys any chance he gets to work with cattle and especially loves branding season. He is also involved with the Youth Program at his church and enjoys teaching young men life skills from fixing cars, cooking, building, shooting, survival skills, and the most manly of all, just plain hard work.
