Matthew A. Yanni, CFA, CFP®
Principal & Chief Compliance Officer

1996 Allegheny College; B.A. in Economics
1997 University of Pittsburgh; M.B.A in Finance

Matt founded YAIA in January, 2007. Prior to starting the Firm, he was employed as an Investment Advisor with PNC’s Wealth Management Group where he managed high-net worth personal clients. Before that, he spent a few years in PNC’s Equity Strategy and Investment Research Groups. He has passed both the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams. He has been quoted several times by the newspapers and is involved in several investment/compliance committees in Pittsburgh including the Greater Pittsburgh Roundtable among others.


At YAIA, Matt is responsible for managing the clients’ overall relationship management. His support staff does assist him with the investment research, rebalancing efforts, and client communication. However, he has maintained the direct point of contact for all of the relationships at YAIA. Matt is also certified to sell life and long-term care Insurances in Pennsylvania and a few other states. As insurance is regulated on a state-by-state basis, other states will be added on an as needed basis going forward. He sells these insurances as an individual and not through YAIA.


Matt and his wife, Tara, live in Gibsonia, PA with their three children, Katie, Ella, and Jacob. In his spare time, he primarily spends it with his family. Katie is involved in competitive travel volleyball, Ella with cheerleading and gymnastics, and Jacob with soccer. Matt is also the coach for Jacob’s youth soccer team.
