The merger of the two firms adds a depth of talent and specialisation in areas such as tax planning, estate planning, and business retirement planning, as well as enhanced client service capabilities and state-of-the-art technology that will allow the firm to serve many different types of clients and their changing needs.   

Adds Robert Siefert, CFP, President and Principal of Modera, says: “Growing our firm in order to better serve clients, as well as offer additional resources and opportunities to our staff, is important to us.”
