I have been educating and assisting businesses and individuals with their financial services needs for over 18 years.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from C.W. Post University. I began my career working with Citicorp Investment Services providing financial advice to clients. This then lead me down the path of assisting institutional and hedge fund clients trading crude oil and natural gas options on the floor of the New York Mercantile Exchange. These experiences brought me to the realization that although I loved working with clients, I did not necessarily like doing so within the confines of the Wall Street environment.

In 2004, I made the decision to transition to Comprehensive Financial where I developed more meaningful relationships with businesses and individuals and delivered strategies and advice specific to them. In 2018, I am proud to have joined forces with long-time friends and colleagues Maria Avento and Joe Campisi to form Harbour Financial.

When I am away from the office, I enjoy spending time at the beach or on the slopes with my wife and three children. I enjoy watching and playing sports, but always remember why I am not on the PGA tour when I look at my score card after a round of golf.

I received my Bachelor Degree in Business Administration in 1987 with a concentration in Accounting from Hofstra University. Upon graduation, I chose to accept a position as an Assistant supporting a financial planner in Manhattan, where I could leverage my accounting background but pursue my interest in helping clients manage their financial future.

Since 1998, I have had the privilege of working with my clients helping them pursue their financial dreams.

I received my Bachelor Degree in Business Administration in 1987 with a concentration in Accounting from Hofstra University. Upon graduation, I chose to accept a position as an Assistant supporting a financial planner in Manhattan, where I could leverage my accounting background but pursue my interest in helping clients manage their financial future.

I learned a great deal during this tenure as a sole Assistant, however, I wanted to interact more with clients, continue to grow in my career and explore new opportunities. I was soon hired by another firm and over time was promoted to Director of Financial Planning, a role which met these criteria and more! Every day, I was responsible for working directly with clients, helping them to solve complex money issues, advising on investments and building financial plans.

Following my passions, in 1998, I fulfilled my dream of owning my own firm and founded Avento Financial Services. In 2018, I am proud to have joined forces with long-time friends and colleagues Mike Breunig and Joe Campisi to form Harbour Financial.

On a personal note, I believe in the power of philanthropy and am involved with a number of charities, including: St. Jude, St. Mary's, Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Special Olympics, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Shriners and the Humane Society. Additionally, I was invited to join the Monter Cancer Center Patient and Family Partnership Council in 2016. I accepted this invitation as a way to give back to this amazing organization that cared so deeply for my beloved mother, Theresa, during her brave battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Outside the office, I enjoy traveling, reading, entertaining, and love to spend time with my husband, family, friends and clients.

Joseph Campisi, RICP®
Financial Advisor
Series 7 (General Securities Representative), Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law), Series 65 (Uniform Investment Adviser Law)

I have been in the industry for over 40 years specializing in financial planning, wealth management, retirement savings and income planning, and life, health, disability, and long term care insurance.

My career began in 1978 at Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance company, where I concentrated my work in the areas of financial planning for individuals and employee benefits for business owners. I became a partner at Comprehensive Financial, a boutique financial planning firm in 1996.

I believe that the needs of the client should always be the only basis for any recommendations or services that I provide. This philosophy was carried forward as a registered representative of The Investment Center, Inc., an independent broker dealer. My affiliation with a broker dealer that is truly independent of any investment firm, bank or insurance carrier allows me to employ a holistic approach and provide unbiased advice to my clients. My aim is to become a trusted guide to my clients so that they may be likely to achieve their particular dreams and goals.

I am proud to have joined forces with Mike Breunig and Maria Avento to form Harbour Financial, where our core value will remain as always, to be truly independent, and place the interests and goals of the client first.

My office has been located in Aquebogue, NY since 2001, where I provide financial services to my clients on the East End of Long Island. In addition to my career in financial services and wealth management, I enjoy skiing, playing drums, and spending time with my wife and German Short Hair Pointer.
