In addition, Mr. Moody also holds the titles of President of Matrix Settlement & Clearance Services, LLC, President and Manager of MSCS Financial Services, LLC, and President of Matrix Financial Solutions, Inc. Mr. Moody is also Manager on the Board of Managers for MG Trust Company, an NSCC member.

Mr. Moody currently serves on the board of CiKR (Council of Independent 401(k) Recordkeepers) helping to shape the retirement industry’s key initiatives.

Mr. Moody is a pioneer in the “open architecture” movement that is now sweeping the 401(k) industry, in which plan sponsors are now able to offer funds from hundreds of providers. Seeing the need for more flexibility and an early adaptor of fee disclosure, Moody’s vision has made Matrix a favorite among independent TPAs/Record Keepers and major wirehouses and broker/dealer firms looking to get ahead of the regulatory push.
Mr. Moody has more than 30 years of financial services experience, holding positions with firms such as PaineWebber and MorganStanley before starting Matrix. Through his leadership Matrix grew to one of the leading mutual fund trading providers in the industry, with more than $175B on its platform.
