Financial Planner & Wealth Manager

As a fee-only financial planner and investment advisor, my goal is to help the next generation of wealth builders make smart decisions with their money. - T.J. van Gerven, CFP®

Are you a next-gen professional looking to invest to make work optional? Protect your family, assets, and income? Plan for your children's education savings? Manage concentrated employer stock positions? At MWB, we focus on life goal planning for high earning professionals like yourself.

Modern Wealth Builders, LLC provides fee-only financial planning and investment management services to professionals in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. 

We are focused on bringing REAL financial planning to the next generation of wealth builders. 

This is not your father's financial advisor.

Growing up on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, I felt a strong sense of community and wanted the opportunity to work with, and give back to the people I felt had a major impact on my journey. The Vineyard community is unique in both its people and lifestyle. Due to the high cost-of-living and seasonality of the island economy, it’s especially crucial that Vineyard community members take the necessary steps to appropriately plan for their financial needs. Island business owners, in particular, have to make sure to maximize their cash flow, as a large portion of their income can come in small time frames.

For clients in the Greater Boston area (particularly Burlington), I specialize in helping professionals maximize their employer benefits, while balancing other financial goals such as saving for a home, investing for retirement/financial freedom, saving for children’s education, and creating a balanced lifestyle among other things.

At Modern Wealth Builders, my goal is to help you build wealth both monetarily and spiritually. Helping people identify what truly matters to them, and how to use their money efficiently to accomplish those goals is My Why.

I currently split my time traveling back and forth between the Vineyard and Greater Boston area meeting with clients both in-person and virtually.
