Smart, Trusted Retirement Planning

Low-Cost Advice

We find cost-effective investment strategies, and you pay for our expert advice – we do not receive commissions or 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 lower in cost than a comparative mutual fund portfolio.

A FIDUCIARY OBLIGATION TO
PUT YOUR INTERESTS FIRST

Fiduciaries like The Mather Group are Registered Investment Advisers (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 always obligated to act as fiduciaries and can sell investment products for commissions. 

All your investments are held in a separate custody account with Fidelity, Charles Schwab, or TD Ameritrade, all highly rated national firms.

Our motivation is to see your retirement investments grow.

Conflict Level Chart

Critical questions to ask your advisor

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

TMG has an open architecture, which means we can invest in anything that is publicly traded. We use what is best for our clients.

Do you carry a series 6 or series 7 license?This identifies if an advisor carries a brokerage license. If they do, they typically get paid by commission, which means that they may place you in higher priced securities.

Advisors at TMG do not hold brokerage licenses.
