Helping hundreds of people retire since 1986
in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
In the 1980s, our founders Mike and Debbie DeMatteo met when they worked together at a regional investment bank in Mount Kisco, Westchester County, New York. They were working for the typical investment bank of the times: employees were given a product list and were told to go sell it. Young and entrepreneurial, Mike and Debbie regularly talked about the lack of services available to non-institutional size investors. They had a vision of starting an independent, fee-only investment advisory firm—so that every judgment would be completely objective, and every decision would be made in the client’s best interest.
On October 15, 1986, that goal became a reality. The date held so much significance for Mike and Debbie that they decided to reflect it in the firm’s name: 10-15 Associates. They started the company in the basement of their first home with a telephone book, a phone, and persistence. They were married the following year, on August 15, 1987.
