Justin Rivera

Wealth Advisor
Associate Portfolio Manager


Justin Rivera began his career in the financial services industry in 2014, and is a Wealth Advisor & Associate Portfolio Manager for ARQ Wealth Advisors. Justin attended the University of Michigan and earned a bachelor’s degree in economics. He obtained the Certified Financial Planner™ designation in 2017 and the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation in 2021.

Pursuing a career in finance was an aspiration of his from a young age. His parents separated soon after he was born; one parent had a financial planner throughout his childhood and one did not. He experienced firsthand how much of a difference a trusted partner can make, not only to the client, but their family as well. He started his career at Vanguard as a brokerage professional, and later a financial advisor. Prior to joining ARQ Wealth he was a Senior Financial Advisor at Motley Fool Wealth Management, where he worked with high-net-worth families on investment management and comprehensive financial planning. 

Justin was born in Detroit, Michigan, but also spent some time in Phoenix, Arizona, throughout his childhood. After graduating from UofM, he moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, where he lived for 5 years before moving to Denver, Colorado. When he’s not at work you can find him playing with his dogs, spending time with his wife and son, playing hockey, or out on the golf course.
