About Me

Hi, I'm Matt Samson. As president and financial advisor at ILS Financial, I understand the unique challenges and opportunities of military service and offer customized strategies to help my clients achieve financial freedom. With a distinguished career spanning over twenty-one years of active and reserve service as a United States Marine flying the F/A-18 "Hornet," I bring a wealth of professional experience to the financial services industry.

In 2014, I made the transition from active-duty military service to financial planning, discovering my true calling as a Financial Advisor and later established Integrated Lifestyle Strategies Financial —a place where I could meet clients where they are, assist them in designing the lifestyle of their dreams, and leverage a refined and structured process to help them reach for those dreams.

The immense pride I have in serving clients with tailor-made financial strategies that help them work toward financial freedom and work-optional lifestyles fuels my passion for this work. I value the trust my clients place in me and thrive off helping them live out their dreams and enjoy less stress. It's a great honor to have the opportunity to be a positive influence on the individual’s life, their family members, and possibly for generations to come.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, an MBA from the University of Nebraska – Omaha, and a Certificate in Wealth Management Theory and Practice from the Yale School of Management. I also obtained the Certified Private Wealth Advisor® certification from the Institute of Investments and Wealth. I continue to proudly serve our nation as a member of the United States Marine Corps Reserves, where I am currently serving as a Space Operations Officer.

Outside of the financial world, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Laura, and our three sons, Brayden, Connor, and William, and I am involved with my local sports community as a coach for high school football, youth football, and travel baseball.
