Thomas Cohen

Financial Advisor

Before joining Janney, Tom cultivated a 30-yearcareer as an International Fur Broker before spending two years at Merrill Lynch/Bank of America. Over the years, he worked tirelessly to expand his experiences and financial acumen toward producing exceptional results for his clients. This has generated a unique understanding of domestic and foreign markets, knowledge of financial instruments, and a keen ability to spot investment opportunities. It has given him the opportunity to develop a proven approach for helping clients define and meet their goals and broadened his commitment to fostering personal relationships. Tom’s strengths in strategic planning, attention to detail, and communication skills support the financial management plans he tailors to each clients' needs. His professionalism has helped him provide excellent customer service to his growing client base with an eye toward preserving and growing his clients’ wealth.


The strong ties Tom has established with his community and neighbors underscore his proactive outlook. He is proud to serve as a Trustee of the Incorporated Village of Hewlett Harbor since 2009 as well as its Police Commissioner since 2017. A member since 2000, he served as Past President of the Kiwanis Club of the Five Towns from 2016-2019, Treasurer from 2010-2016, and has been the President of the Chest and Foundation of the Fur Industry NYC since 2015. These rewarding commitments have given him additional opportunities to build long-term relationships while giving back to the community.


Outside of the office, Tom enjoys golf, movie and TV trivia, the New York Times Crossword puzzles, and spending time with family and friends. An ardent fan of the show Jeopardy!, he was a contestant in 2009, finishing in second place. Married for over 30 years to his wife, Shari, they are proud of their two children: one is an attorney at a hedge fund, and the other is a CPA at a big four accounting firm. A graduate of Hofstra University, Tom earned a BS in Economics and holds the Series 7, Series 66, and NYS Insurance registrations.
