Chris Cosenza, CFP®, AIF® has been a financial advisor for over 20 years serving the wealth management needs of successful individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations. Chris started his advisory career with Smith Barney in New York before joining AXA Advisors in Atlanta as a Regional Vice President. In 2002, through LPL Financial, Chris opened his own independent practice which became Brookhaven Wealth Management, Inc. in 2013.
Chris’ passion for financial planning was formed early in life when he unexpectedly lost his father at age 5. Fortunately, his parents did some life insurance planning, which allowed his mother to return to school and keep Chris and his siblings in their home. Understanding the value and benefits of hard work and financial planning, Chris has made a career out of sharing his passion with others.
Appreciating the convenience and vibrant personality of this “in town suburb” Chris decided to call Brookhaven home in 2007. He is an active member of the community. He is a founding member of the Chrysalis Club supporting the needs of Visiting Nurse | Hospice Atlanta, is a facilitator at their bereavement camp-Camp STARS, and serves on their Advancement Committee. Chris is also the Chairman of the Cardinal Rock Charitable Foundation, which he started with his brother to honor the life of their father, which hosts the Brookhaven Wealth Management Charity Golf Classic annually, to raise money for Hospice Atlanta's Camp STARS and other worthy organizations.
When he is not working with clients or volunteering his time, Chris enjoys playing soccer, volleyball, golf, and yoga or any other activities that help him pursue an active and healthy lifestyle. As a Founder's Club member for Atlanta United you can also find him regularly at Mercedes Benz stadium cheering on the 5 Stripes!
Chris enjoys speaking publicly on a variety of topics including retirement planning strategies for the self-employed, distribution strategies for experienced 401k participants, as well as investment strategies and portfolio management for foundations and endowments.
