Your Fee-Only Financial Advisors and Investment Managers

We don’t just work in Sarasota. Sarasota is our home, and our clients are our neighbors and friends.

The Fee-Only Fiduciary Difference

Fiduciary is a word that’s tossed around a lot, but not many people actually know what it is. It comes from the word “to trust,” and means that we are ethically bound to put client interests above our own.

We are honored to be a member of the Sarasota community as Fiduciaries, providing financial planning and investment management services, to help you live your best life.

Please stop by our Sarasota Office at 1577 Fruitville Road (on the corner of Orange Avenue and Fruitville). We are here Monday through Friday between 9-5 or make an appointment to ensure our availability at 941-879-9290.

If you’re in the New Jersey area, feel free to visit our Northern, NJ office. If, like many of our clients, you don’t live in Florida or New Jersey but still want to work with us, we’re happy to do online meetings.

Our Home

We love visitors and snowbirds, but this is our home. We live in Sarasota, work in Sarasota, our children go to school in Sarasota, we attend church in Sarasota, and we participate in the Sarasota community.

We also have a second office in Oakland, NJ that serves our Tri-State area clientele.

Our Investment

While others use temporary office space in town, we invested in our own permanent office. Located at 1577 Fruitville Road, our office is open to visitors during working hours. Stop by for a cup of coffee and a chat.

Our Commitment

Atlas Fiduciary’s principal, Dr. Mattia, is committed to the profession and the community. In 2016 after moving to Sarasota she was hired by the USF Business College Dean to work with the state of Florida to create a new registered Certified Financial Planners™ degree, ultimately ensuring that the people of Florida are better served by a new breed of educated financial planners.

Dr. Mattia’s Ph.D. academic research has made her aware that 78% of single-female-headed households in Florida are financially struggling and baby boom women are less financially literate than men, putting them at risk when they become divorced or widowed. Many of these women seek assistance from the Women’s Resource Center (WRC), a 501(c)(3) located in Sarasota, Manatee and Venice. Dr. Mattia wanted to help so she created the Women’s Money Empowerment program at WRC, where women (or anyone in need) can receive pro bono financial advice, financial education, and overall financial guidance as they navigate through life transitions.

Our Clients

Our clients are our neighbors and our friends, and our partnership is valued and long-lasting.

We most often work with people nearing retirement, retirees, independent women and widows, professionals and business owners, and families and people with aging parents.
