Financial Planner & Wealth Manager

As a fee-only financial planner and investment advisor, my goal is to help you make smart decisions with your money to make work optional. - T.J. van Gerven, CFP®

Scheduling your first phone call and going through our free assessment will help you make an informed decision about hiring us. One flat transparent fee includes the management of all your investment accounts + ongoing financial and tax planning.

There are three really important things about our firm that separates us from others:

1. We specialize in working with high earning young professionals. Most of the industry is geared towards working with retirees.

2. We limit the number of new clients we take on so that we can focus on delivering massive value and a personalized experience to the clients we’ve committed working with.

3. We invest in the latest in financial planning technology to make tracking the progress of your financial journey seamless and rewarding.

Theodore Joseph (T.J.) van Gerven is the founder of Modern Wealth Builders, LLC, an independent fee-only financial planning practice in the Greater Boston area.

Growing up on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, T.J. felt a strong sense of community and wanted the opportunity to work with, and give back to the people he felt had a major impact on his 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, T.J. helps island community members take the necessary steps to plan for their financial needs.

T.J. also specializes in helping equity compensated professionals manage taxes as it relates to employer stock while being mindful of potential concentration risk.

Helping people identify what truly matters to them, and how to use their money efficiently to create the life they want is his passion!
