Founded by Jerry Foster in 1989 as Retirement & Investment Advisors, Foster Group has always been committed to encouraging lives of meaning and generosity for our team, our clients, and our communities.
The firm adopted a fee-only compensation model in 1992 to effectively eliminate the potential for conflicts of interest and give clients confidence that the advice we deliver is always in their best interests. Assets under management surpassed $100 million in 1997. And in 2001, the firm’s name was officially changed to Foster Group.
Today, Foster Group is a privately held, independent, fee-only financial planning and investment management firm. We are headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, with a regional office in Omaha, Nebraska. Our 23 shareholders* are active in the firm and represent multiple age groups. They have been selected intentionally to ensure that the level of service our clients receive today can be delivered and improved upon for generations to come.
