What do you value most in your client relationships?

Getting to know our clients and their families as not just clients, but as friends. Knowing that they trust me, and us, with very important and personal aspects of their lives is a humbling experience and something that I do not take for granted.

What’s the one thing people say you’re best at?

I would hope that colleagues and clients would say that I am clear, educational and understandable in my work and my approach.  I would hope that friends and family will say that I can be counted on, that I will be there to lend a hand, be supportive or be a listener whenever, wherever with no hesitation.

When you retire you’re going to…?

Ski or play professional hockey.

Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

Although I grew up in Milton, MA and live currently in Westwood, MA, I don’t have much of a BAWSTON accent, but can conjure one up if needed.

The Grand Canyon and Investing for the Long Term

A month, a year, even 10 or 20 years are short periods of time in the entire scheme of things. Just as the Grand Canyon wasn’t created in a day, neither can a successful investment strategy be measured in the returns of one week, six months or even three years.

2019 Q2 Investment Perspectives

Investment performance in both U.S. stock and bond markets has been strong year-to-date and while some investors are concerned about a sell-off, others are worried: worried about a possible recession, worried about interest rates, uncertain about growth. They’re also worried about missing out on the next big thing, worried about “beating the markets” and perhaps not worrying enough about the risks of their investments.

2019 Q1 Investment Perspectives

Record is our word of the quarter. It describes the first quarter of 2019 and the fourth quarter of 2018, both of which were historically extraordinary performance quarters for the stock market, both up and down. The word record may also describe Modera Wealth Management because we often sound like a broken one when we say: “Stick with your financial plan, and do not try to time the stock market.”
