The Watchman Group, Inc. is a fee-only investment management and fee-only financial planning firm located in Plano, Texas. As a registered investment advisor with the SEC, our primary focus is to help individuals and families who are looking for a professional perspective on the management of their financial affairs.

As a steward of our client’s assets, we serve as their trusted financial advisor and take great care in our fiduciary responsibilities. 

A fiduciary is defined as:

An individual, often in a position of authority, who is obligated to act on behalf of another (as in managing money or property) and assumes a duty to act in good faith and with care, candor, and loyalty in fulfilling the obligation. 
(Merriam-Webster Dictionary)


As an investment advisor, we view our fiduciary responsibilities as a major differentiator between us and other firms in the investment industry. Putting you first is not only our legal creed, but an integral part of our individual values. 

Through this commitment to act in a fiduciary capacity, we strive to serve as a financial coach and educator because ultimately we want to do what is in every client’s best interest.
