Planning Specialties

At Landmark Wealth Management, LLC, the other two Principals and Financial Advisors of the firm, Brian Cohen and Joseph Favorito CFP®, are involved and get to know the clients as well. While you do have a primary contact as your Financial Planner, we believe that by having an integrated team approach, our clients have the best of both worlds: extensive access to a Principal of the firm and Financial Advisor, while also having a personalized relationship.  As SEC Registered Investment Advisors we are held to the Fiduciary Standard.  

We take a holistic approach to financial planning. Our advice is never focused on the sale of a product or security. Rather we take into account the complete financial picture of each individual client while assessing their personal goals and financial circumstances. We typically complete a “Financial Stress Test” by first analyzing factors such as:

Income Expenses
Assets Tax Planning
Insurance Coverage Retirement Goals
College Planning Estate Planning


Once we have properly addressed an appropriate measurement of risk, we construct investment portfolios using a Strategic Asset Allocation.  Investment solutions are prescribed based on the most cost effective and appropriate solutions available within the marketplace.  We utilize investment selection with a focus and emphasis on wealth accumulation, preservation, and wealth transfer.
