Abby Pitner


Abby joined our Denver office in 2021, bringing experience from Janus Henderson, where she was a senior investor service specialist. She also spent summers interning at Janus, Great American Insurance Group, and Daniels Consulting Firm. 

After working in finance for several years, Abby knew she wanted to find a firm that would enable her to serve as an advocate for families and help them plan for their future. Matter is a perfect fit. She appreciates our team-based approach to both helping families thrive and supporting each other, and she’s thrilled to contribute to our culture of collaboration and knowledge-sharing. 

A graduate of the University of Denver, Abby studied finance with a minor in economics and property development. She was a proud member of Delta Gamma and applied her acumen as the sorority’s vp of finance. For the past six years, Abby has volunteered at the Anchor Center for Blind Children, in Denver, where she spends time learning and playing with visually impaired children. She appreciates the organization’s focus on both young children with vision loss and their siblings and parents, to support family communication and set everyone up for success.  

When she has free time, Abby loves being outside, skiing, playing tennis, and hiking with her dog, Finn. She also enjoys yoga and spin classes. Abby’s an avid reader (mainly to boost her Jeopardy skills), and enjoys a relaxing afternoon on the couch once in a while to relax and recharge.
