The firm was founded in 2001 and became an independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) in 2011. TMG was named by Financial Planning Magazine as one of the fastest growing RIAs in the country and was named one of Financial Times top 300 firms in the nation. As they continue to expand their national footprint with offices in multiple states, they seek a Senior Wealth Advisor. As the main point of contact, will actively communicate with clients on a daily basis, providing advice on cash flows/tax planning strategies, estate/insurance issues, identify investment goals/retirement planning needs and implement recommendations with assistance of support staff.

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.
