What is a fee-only financial planner?
A fee-only financial planner is a financial planner that does not accept commission on product sales, but instead only accepts payment as a fee for time and advice. By removing a commission based pay structure, we are better able to enact a fiduciary relationship to our clients. The Modera team of fee-only financial planners in Westwood have a fiduciary duty to your best interests as our client.
As a fiduciary, Modera is required to provide objective advice and a commitment to the highest level of ethics.
As an independently-owned organization, we are unaffected by the influence of shareholders or other third parties. Under our ownership structure, we are owned by a corporation of which ten Modera employees, all of whom are wealth managers, are the sole owners.
