Wealthtech firm, Farther, has reported assets under management (AUM) of $675 million – representing “nearly 5x year-over-year growth – continuing the firm’s rise since its establishment in 2019.”
Founded by Taylor Matthews and Brad Genser, Farther is “a digital wealth management firm that provides a hybrid approach to advising clients: combining modern technology with the bespoke, financial expertise of a seasoned wealth advisor.”
The firm’s growing AUM reportedly “demonstrates the rising class of modern, high-net-worth professionals – who are building generational wealth and turning to Farther for a more holistic approach to managing their money.”
Farther Co-Founder & CEO, Taylor Matthews said:
“We are thrilled to celebrate Farther’s fourth anniversary with the remarkable achievement of 5x growth in assets under management since the start of 2022. This accomplishment is a testament to the dedication and innovation of our team, and we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished in just one year. As we look toward the future: we are continuing to lead the way in innovating the wealth management industry – while driving growth and success for our advisors, clients, and partners.”
Accompanying Farther’s continued growth in clientele, the firm is “expanding its services and investment opportunities.”

As mentioned in the update shared with CI, Farther is described as “a new kind of financial institution: combining expert advisors and cutting-edge technology to deliver a comprehensive, personalized client experience.”
