About Us

Our Purpose

Centura Wealth Advisory was established in San Diego, California with a focused mission:

“We believe everyone has a purpose in life, and ours is to help wealthy individuals and families achieve their purpose through a proactive and comprehensive wealth management process called Liberated Wealth®.”

We are inspired by and guided by our client’s North Star.

The North Star is a bearing point in someone’s journey. It embodies our client’s goals, values, and purpose for their life and wealth.

By following our Liberated Wealth® process, we structure a comprehensive wealth plan designed to help you reach your North Star.

Our History

Centura Wealth Advisory was started with a common vision of its founding members who have been advising clients together for over a decade.  

Create an independent advisory firm which goes above and beyond traditional money management to bring only the best value added solutions to our clients; and not be all things to all people.

Centura goes beyond a traditional multi-family office wealth management firm to offer advanced tax and estate planning solutions which traditional wealth managers often lack in expertise, knowledge, or resources to offer their clients.

We invest heavily into technology and systems to provide our clients fully transparent reporting, and tools to make informed decisions around their wealth plan.

Headquartered in San Diego, California, Centura is passionate about our client’s objectives and owns the fiduciary responsibility of protecting their interests.

We strive to be the best in our chosen lines of business, not the biggest.

Our Team

Everyone on our team has their own North Star. They center around serving our clients, our community, and their aspirations. Feel free to learn more about our incredible team here at Centura.

Matt Griffith, CFP®

Senior Wealth Advisor, Investment Advisor Representative


As the son of a coach, Matt grew up roaming the sidelines of football games and tagging along to local gyms during basketball season. Basketball was his sport, and he enjoyed being a part of some really good teams playing small college basketball. There was no better feeling than being a part of a winning team, collaborating with others, and working toward a specific goal.

After college, Matt became fascinated with capital markets. It was hard to miss in the late 90’s, as stocks were running wild in the formation of the tech bubble. He made his way to the investment business in late 2000.

After the tech bubble, he realized there was so much more to offer than just a platform to trade stocks. There was a need to help people with personal financial matters. Financial planning offered exactly what he wanted- a cross section of personal finance, capital markets, and coaching.

After years of studying and working in this field, Matt really enjoys that he’s tapping back into his coaching and teamwork roots while providing high-net worth wealth management services. He helps clients figure out what they truly want to accomplish in their life, come up with a plan so they are prepared, and be there to collaborate, educate, or even coach to make the plan a success.

Prior to joining Centura Wealth Advisory, Matt provided wealth management and financial planning services at a RIA firm and a Big 4 accounting firm. Matt has worked in financial services for over 20 years.

Matt attended San Diego State University for the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certificate program and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from William Jewell College.

Matt, his wife, Lauren, and their two children reside in Point Loma. Matt is active in the community serving as a board member of Home Start and the Point Loma Optimist Club.
