WESTWOOD, N.J., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Modera Wealth Management, LLC was named a Best Place to Work in Money Management for 2016 by Pensions & Investments. Modera is one of 50 national honorees in this category. Modera won this award in 2012 as well.
Modera Wealth Management, LLC (Modera) is a fee-only, independent wealth management firm that works with individuals, families, retirement plan sponsors, and non-profit institutions in the areas of portfolio management, retirement planning, estate planning, income tax planning and risk analysis. Specialized services are also offered for corporate executives and small business owners. The firm has offices in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Florida and Georgia and manages over $2 billion in client assets as of January 1, 2017.
Greg Plechner, Principal and Wealth Manager said, "We are honored to once again be recognized for our firm culture and workplace. This award is especially meaningful to us because it comes from our staff. It is a true testament to the firm culture we've all established together." George Padula, Principal and Wealth Manager, added, "As stated in our firm values and evident every day in our culture, we focus on the importance of family, and consider clients and staff members to be an extension of our own families."
Pension and Investments has noted several ways that Modera has exemplified the integration of company and community. Modera has a Philanthropy Committee which selects a unified theme for each of its four offices to address firm-sponsored philanthropic endeavors. In 2016, the committee selected cancer support and awareness. In 2017, the firm will dedicate its charitable efforts to financial literacy for underserved youth. Modera continuously looks for ways to enhance staff interactions among its four offices. For example, the firm has sponsored firm-wide retreats focused on team-building, garnering a 100% participant rate. At the local level, a "fun committee" at each office location organizes social events for staff. Formal educational seminars are available for staff to acquire personal finance insights from CFP® professionals.
Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies.
