Financial Planning + Asset Management= Wealth Management
Plan for Sudden Wealth with a
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional.
Sudden Wealth Advisors
Darrow Wealth Management specializes in planning for a sudden liquidity event or windfall, typically from stock options after an IPO, inheritance, or selling a business. If your financial situation has changed dramatically, you may need help developing a financial and investment strategy from the ground up.
While this may be the first (or only) time you’ll need to plan for a large windfall, it’s not ours. We have the experience to help guide you to – and through – a sudden wealth event.
Wealth Management = Investment Management + Financial Planning
Because our goal is to offer clients a complete solution to their asset management and financial planning needs, we offer one service: wealth management. In working with clients, we believe that to get the best outcome, financial decisions shouldn’t be made in a vacuum, which requires a deep understanding of your financial situation and goals.
That’s why our wealth management services are centered around ongoing investment management and financial planning support. Because without a continued relationship, proactive planning opportunities are often lost.

Wealth Management and Financial Planning Services
Fee-Only Financial Advisor and Fiduciary
The nature of the advice and support we provide typically evolves over the course of a long-term partnership with our clients, as their financial situation, life stage, and goals inevitably change.
Fee-Only Advisors Don’t Earn Commissions or Sell Products
Work with an advisor – not a salesperson. As a client, you will never have to worry that your advisor may try to sell you a financial product for their own personal gain. Why? As a fee-only financial advisor, we do not sell securities, investment or insurance products. We also don’t receive commissions or compensation from third parties.
Acting in Your Best Interest as a Fiduciary Investment Advisor
Founded in 1987, Darrow Wealth Management is now a second-generation family business. As an independent registered investment advisor, we are a financial fiduciary, required to act – at all times – for the sole benefit and interest of our clients. A fiduciary duty is the highest act of loyalty, trust and care as established by law. Unfortunately, not all financial advisors are obligated to put your best interest ahead of their own.

Wealth Management in Boston and Beyond
Darrow Wealth Management is an asset management and financial planning firm with offices in Boston, MA and Needham, MA. Our reach is national: we partner with executives across the country as a SEC-registered investment advisor. Unfortunately, investors tend to prioritize the financial advisor near me search when looking for a wealth manager.
Technology makes it easy to meet face-to-face, even if we’re in different places. When looking for a fiduciary financial advisor, consider prioritizing the right complete fit over an office location near you. After all, if you move or your advisor does, you probably won’t want to start over with a new firm.
