Cornerstone reported that, based on prior business, the firm had served approximately USD300 million of client assets, as of 30 June, 2015.
Based in Kennewick, Washington, the Cornerstone team includes two advisors, Matt Riesenweber and Matt Wiser as well as an operations manager and two client service specialists.
