Smart, Trusted Retirement Planning

Low-Cost Advice
Sets Us Apart

We find the most cost-effective investment strategies, and you pay only for our expert advice – no commissions, no product fees, and no hidden fees.

The Mather Group's fee-only index approach puts more of your money where it should be—in your investments, not in a broker's pockets. Without those commissions and hidden fees, your portfolio has more money growing in retirement, a method that's 60% lower in cost than a comparative mutual fund portfolio.*

Are added fees crippling your investments?

For every new client, we provide a free investment audit to expose the true cost of owning each of your investments. If there are hidden fees, we bring them to light. Nine times out of ten, your investment costs with The Mather Group are significantly lower.

Fiduciaries like The Mather Group are registered investment advisors (RIAs) with a fiduciary duty to their clients.

That means we have a legal obligation to always act in your best interest. Brokers and hybrid RIAs are not obligated to act in your best interest and can sell investment products for commissions.

And there are no conflicts about where your money is held – all your investments are held in a separate custody with Fidelity, Charles Schwab, or TD Ameritrade, all highly rated national firms.

Our motivation is to see your retirement investments grow.

Critical questions to ask your advisor

Do you offer in-house/proprietary investment products or solutions? This identifies conflicts of interest. If they use their own products, they are double dipping, which means they are charging you product fees on top of management fees.

The Mather Group has an open architecture, which means we can invest in anything that is publicly traded. We only use what is best for our clients and we DO NOT have our own products.

Do you carry a series 6 or series 7 license? This identifies if someone carries a brokerage license. If they do, they are not a fiduciary 100% of the time and can get paid in non-transparent ways.

The Mather Group does not hold a series 6 or series 7 license since we are a true fiduciary RIA.

Comprehensive Tax Strategy

Many decisions you will make in planning for retirement have tax consequences.

And they play a major role in how to invest and manage your money. Your one fee covers every service we provide, including a comprehensive tax strategy from our on-staff CPAs. Most retirement advisors cannot provide this crucial tax planning.
