The Mather Group, LLC (TMG) is one of the fastest-growing independent, fee-only registered investment advisory firms in the country, offering comprehensive financial planning services with our clients’ best interests in mind.

TMG is registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 as a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This means we have a fiduciary duty to always act in our clients' best interests. 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.

We educate investors on what the fiduciary responsibility really means, at a time when it is more important than ever.
