The Mather Group IT Systems Analyst - Chicago, IL


The Mather Group 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. 


Across our industry, only 3.8% of financial advisors are obligated to put their clients’ best interests first. What the average investor doesn’t realize is that most advisors hold brokerage licenses that allow them to put their firm's interests ahead of the client's. They aren’t legally obligated to act in the client’s best interest and can sell investment products for commissions.

The Mather Group 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 chose TMG, there are no conflicts about where their money is held or how it’s managed.

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