Principal & Wealth Manager

Modera’s roots date to 1983.

That’s when our predecessor firm established itself as one of the country’s first fee-only advisories, to align the best interests of the firm and its clients. Today, we operate offices in seven Eastern cities and manage nearly $7 billion in client assets.

Our growth has been driven by a desire to give clients an exceptionally personal service experience, and access to new investment opportunities. Ultimately, we’ve grown in those special moments when we’ve connected with firms and individuals who share our distinct combination of professional excellence and friendly, relatable work style.

There are more benefits to our increased scale: Streamlining and centralizing our operations lets us focus even more attention on you. Expanding our brain trust puts tremendous expertise at your disposal. Consolidating the pool of assets we manage gives you access to new investment opportunities, and gives us the power to negotiate lower fees on your behalf.
