The Mather Group (TMG) is one of the fastest-growing independent, fee-only registered investment advisory firms in the country, offering comprehensive financial planning services with clients’ best interests in mind. We find the most cost-effective investment strategies, and clients pay only for our expert advice—no commissions, no product fees, and no hidden fees.

OUR INDUSTRY’S CHALLENGE & OUR SOLUTION

Across our industry, only 9% of financial advisors are obligated to put their clients’ best interests first. What the average investor does not realize is that most advisors hold brokerage licenses that allow them to put their firm’s interests ahead of the client’s. They are not legally obligated to act in the client’s best interest and can sell investment products for commissions.

TMG is a registered investment advisor with a fiduciary duty to our clients. That means we have a legal obligation to always act in their best interest. When clients choose TMG, there are no conflicts about where their money is held or how it is managed.

What we are doing differently is educating investors on what the fiduciary responsibility really means, at a time when it is more important than ever.
