CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Financial Times published their list of America’s top 300 independent registered investment (RIA) advisers. The annual roster reflects what’s widely considered to be the best firms in the RIA industry, and this year recognizes some standout players in the wealth management arena—including The Mather Group (TMG).
This is TMG’s third-consecutive ranking on the “FT 300” list over the past three years, and quickly follows their recent recognition on the InvestmentNews Fastest-Growing RIA List, as well as the 2018 Top Advisor Lists by Barron’s and Forbes. TMG Founding Partner Stewart Mather attributes the firm's success first and foremost to their fiduciary standard, followed closely by TMG’s well-seasoned staff of financial, tax and legal professionals.
TMG was founded in 2011 when Mather decided to break away from Wall Street and set up a wealth management firm with a "clients-first" culture, and the fee-only structure to prove it. He opened his doors with $180 million in assets under management (AUM) and a mission to serve clients with complete transparency, putting their growth ahead of commissions and profit. Today, TMG has grown to over $1.7 billion AUM, with 40 employees and offices in Chicago, Houston, Dallas and Atlanta. Their comprehensive, tech-forward offering serves a diverse client base with a wide range of needs, but ultimately the same goal—a comfortable retirement.
The FT 300 list is produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. RIA firms applied for consideration, having met a minimum set of criteria. Applicants were then graded on six factors: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records.
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. To learn more, visit www.themathergroup.com.
