TJ van Gerven
Modern Wealth Builders, LLC
Are you looking for help in managing your employee stock compensation? I help equity compensated employees optimize taxes, diversify concentrated company stock positions, and plan for financial independence.
There are three crucial things about our firm that separates us from others:
1. We specialize in working with equity compensated professionals in their thirties and forties.
2. We limit the number of new clients we take on to focus on delivering massive value and a personalized experience to the clients we’ve committed to working with.
3. We charge one flat fee for ongoing financial planning, tax planning, and investment management.
Scheduling your first phone call and going through our free assessment will help you make an informed decision about hiring us. We'll show you exactly how we can help you before you pay us a single dollar.
Hi, my name is Theodore van Gerven, but you can call me TJ.
I'm the founder of Modern Wealth Builders, a financial planning firm dedicated to helping equity compensated professionals invest smarter, optimize taxes, and plan for financial independence.
I also host the DO MORE WITH YOUR MONEY podcast where I provide financial planning tips and strategies.
My mission is to help people identify what truly matters to them and show them how to use their money to create the life they want.
While I meet with clients in-person when convenient (and when not in a pandemic), I primarily meet with clients virtually.
Outside of helping clients perfect their financial plan, I can be found traveling, playing spike ball on Martha's Vineyard, or crafting a finance-friendly tweet.
Review our case studies if you’re interested in getting an in-depth description of the types of clients we do our best work for.
