Matthew Jenkinson

Matthew Jenkinson

CFA, CKA, BSc. Fin. ​magna cum laude.  
PARTNER & PRESIDENT, EASTPORT PRIVATE INVESTMENT COUNSEL
 

Matt was born and raised in Somerset West, South Africa. He attended Brevard Community College and Southeastern University in Lakeland Florida as a college golf athlete and graduated with a BSc in Finance, magna cum laude. Matt is also a CFA Charterholder.

He is a dedicated family man with reasonable DIY skills and lives with his beautiful wife Megan and precious daughter Paige and son Bennett. They currently reside in Fall River, NS. He enjoys golf, fishing, and building memories with family.

Having been raised in South Africa, a third world country, he was affected by the number of homeless children in the town he lived in and the unfathomable circumstances in which a significant portion of the population helplessly lived and the significant abuse they were exposed to.

As such he has a well-founded perspective on poverty and has been involved in numerous homeless, children’s, and support ministries since his teens. He believes his purpose in life is to help woman and children in need; particularly to protect them. His life is built on the firm foundation of his faith which he brings to all facets of his life; family, friends, and business.

It’s easy to get your money in neat rows. Let’s go further, reimagining wealth to restore your life’s harmony, growth, and purpose.

At Eastport, our boutique approach embodies healthy, fully-realized money as flow for a healthy, fully-realized life. Our low ratio of clients to advisors gives you more focus, options, and time than you’ll get at one of the massive firms or banks.

Most of our new clients are referred to us by inspired current clients. There’s no greater affirmation we’re delivering on our promise than that.

What we believe is how we work.

Financial family icon

You are not just a number to us. We are your financial family.


You’re more than a number to us. We’re in it with you for the long haul as you pass your resources and values from one generation to the next, and your trust in us as we work on your behalf is paramount. As your guides, we’ll give you clarity and transparency, with your life’s vision as our north star.

Goals icon

We come alongside on your path. Your goals are our goals.


Unlike banks, we can work with any financial institution to chart a course unique to you. As we work the financial levers in your favour, we’ll make it easy to manage risk, access or redirect your money, mitigate taxable events to retain as much as you can, and balance bold moves with discipline and prudence.

Vision icon

Good counsel – and a good outlook – starts with good questions.


The concept of money in your life is about more than a portfolio. We grow by shifting our thinking on the trajectory of our business or family, but most people don’t know the questions they need to ask to take it on with agency. We listen, bringing those questions to the surface to find new frontiers together.

 

About banner

 

 

Our history is our family.

In the 80s and 90s, Wayne Lewis used the name Eastport for his construction, development and distribution businesses – all of which embodied the vision of a unified, cross-border Atlantic Region with shared values and opportunities.

Wayne Lewis died when his son Jonathan was just 16 years old. In a tribute to his father’s legacy, Jonathan took steps to hold on to the Eastport name, hoping to revive it one day.

During his college years he did just that, setting up Eastport Landscaping in 1997. By 2004 Jonathan was Manager of Financial Planning with a large firm, but became frustrated with the industry’s lack of integrity and flexibility. He and three of his best staff formed the Eastport Financial Group, building a truly limitless, creative, client-centred team from the ground up.

Today, we’ve grown from our original Halifax office to three more locations in Mahone Bay and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and in Toronto. Our staff are just as committed to our original mission as our founders were seventeen years ago: to help others extend their legacy as the Lewis family has.
