ABOUT THE MATHER GROUP, LLC

TMG is a federally Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) with a fiduciary duty to our clients. That means we are obligated to always act in their best interest. When clients choose TMG, we work to mitigate any potential conflicts of interest regarding how their money is managed and where their money is held. Our financial professionals do not hold brokerage licenses, are not compensated by selling products, and do not earn commissions—we do not incentivize ourselves at our clients’ expense. We aim to minimize cost wherever possible and to provide complete transparency about our fees, which are outlined in our firm’s public disclosure documents.

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.
