About Masus Financial Group

Founder John Masus first opened the doors to Masus Financial Group in April of 1993. Located in the Tower Business Center building in historic downtown Batavia, Illinois, Masus Financial Group began as a one-employee firm, inside of a one-room office.

Determined to grow his zero-client roster, John began to conduct educational seminars at libraries throughout the Fox Valley area. His ongoing seminars and support encouraged referrals, and Masus Financial Group began to grow. In 1998, John’s son Todd achieved his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER CFP designation, and joined his father’s firm. The family-owned and operated business continued to attract new clients, and expanded to include a full staff of dedicated planning professionals.

In 2015, Masus Financial Group became Independent Registered Investment Advisors (RIA), through LPL Financial. This newfound industry status has allowed Masus Financial Group to continue to grow, and offer objective financial guidance that is in the best interest of the individuals and families they serve.

Today, Masus Financial Group is located in a beautiful converted windmill factory that dates back to 1855, with views of the Fox River. We have come a long way since first opening our doors back in 1993. Now that you know our past, we welcome you to become a part of our story as a firm, moving forward.
