Joseph S. Kosek, CFP®

Direct Phone




To advise higher-net-worth individuals regarding effective wealth accumulation and management, income distribution, wealth transfer, and life insurance analysis. As the son of a farmer-turned-steelworker during the depression, Joe would often hear his father say, “When you don’t have money, you worry…and when you have money…you worry.” The point was—get your affairs in order—and stop worrying. Joe built his practice and ongoing service, so clients can have peace of mind, while doing the things they enjoy the most.
