Joseph Vecchio, CPA, CFP®, MBA

Joe believes that people are being exploited by financial salespeople who are merely motivated by quotas, product sales and commission-based income! Shore Financial Planning was founded to provide peace of mind through conflict-free, value-added advice.

Joseph Vecchio is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) and has dedicated his professional life to the finance and accounting professions.

Joe started his career in public accounting where he established a solid accounting foundation. As a full-time professional trader he has cemented his belief in the efficient market theory and the futility behind stock picking strategies. He has strategically forecasted and adapted to tremendous regulatory, technological and competitive pressures on a pro-active level to achieve a competitive advantage for over two decades.

Joe was introduced to fee-only, tax-focused comprehensive financial planning in 2001 when he retained an ACP planner for his personal finances. Joseph was enlightened by the value that it brought to his financial and personal well-being. His experience as a tax professional, financial market expert and small businessman have inspired him to serve as your personal financial bodyguard against threats, debts and the IRS.
