My Approach

I help my clients achieve their dreams for today, tomorrow, and well into the future — using our exclusive Confident Retirement® approach. It starts with a personalized conversation about covering essentials, ensuring lifestyle, preparing for the unexpected and leaving a legacy. By breaking your financial goals down into doable steps, we can help take the uncertainty out of planning for your financial future. Take a few minutes now for a quick confidence check.

I’m here to help you live the life you’ve earned. When you have the right financial advisor, life can be brilliant.


I'm Joe De Sena. I love what I do and am passionate about helping my clients achieve a Confident Retirement. I'm married to Daria. She is an interior decorator. We have two children Joe and Ashley. Joe attends the School of Visual Arts in NYC and is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual and Critical Studies. Ashley is a special education teacher in Brooklyn. We have a dog named Brooklyn. He is a Bichon Shih Tzu mix.

I love to travel, read, run marathons and do charity work. My family, heritage and tradition is my foundation.
