Matthew Shapiro founded MWS Capital LLC in 2003 with the goal of building a long term investment business that served high net worth and Main Street clients. Matt approached Fidelity Investments and MWS Capital was qualified by them as an Institutional Advisor. Since then, MWS Capital has brought the exceptional quality and low costs of Fidelity to his clients, along with personal attention and advice, investing in portfolios that are more cost efficient than most mutual funds. Belying frenetic trading, MWS Capital invests in classic stock and bond portfolios using a sophisticated, modern approach.

Matt is a frequent market commentator, appearing on CNBC, Bloomberg Television, the nationally syndicated First Business, and CBS Radio, WBBM-780 in Chicago. He has been a featured guest speaker of the Chicago chapter of the American Association of Individual Investors.

Matt received a BA in Economics in 1996 from Rutgers College in New Jersey. His years of investment and trading experience started with his first clerking job on the New York Cotton Exchange in 1995. He then joined William Charlton and Co, a trading firm on the American Stock Exchange, with whom he was employed until 2003. There he rose to head clerk before volunteering to trade on the CBOE. Matt moved to Chicago in 1998, elbowed into the crowd that traded options on EMC Corporation and was immediately successful in the wild Internet Bubble of 1999 and 2000. Since then, Matt has sought to bring his investing to the public.
