Comprehensive Retirement Planning with Tranquility Path
We specialize in gently guiding pre-retirees and retirees to and through the distribution phase of their financial life. As fiduciaries, our goal is to provide you with a tranquil path to retirement by creating a solid retirement plan, with an income you can depend on. We strive to reduce your worries so you can focus on the things that are most important to you. We are located in central New Jersey and help families across the country.
Who We Serve
Retirement is a new beginning.
We work with pre-retirees and retirees to help you transition from your working years to your golden years. While most advisors only focus on accumulating money for their clients, there’s a unique skill set needed to develop and implement strategies for individuals transitioning to retirement. We guide our clients through retirement income planning, Social Security strategies, investment management, insurance, and legacy planning.
We’ll guide you through the opportunities and challenges you may face.
First we get to know each other. We take the time to understand your unique situation and retirement goals, answer questions, and help determine if we are the right fit.
Then we’ll run an analysis based on your current situation and what your dream retirement looks like so we can prepare custom strategies for you.
Your Action Plan
We’ll present you with a custom roadmap that helps keep you on track as you work toward your unique retirement goals.
Implementation & Guidance
Once you’re confident with the plan, we implement it, consistently track your financial progress, and adapt to new goals as your life evolves.
Helping you live your ideal retirement.
We design custom strategies that prepare you for any curveballs life might throw your way. We help you create a more tranquil retirement with our flexible, fiduciary, fee-based approach to make the most of your wealth.
We’ll help you navigate the complex world of retirement savings and identify investment options to grow your money, such as IRAs and 401(k)s, while enjoying tax benefits. If you have equity compensation, such as stock options or RSUs, they can be a valuable feature from your employer and a way to share in your company’s success. It’s important to consider using your equity compensation to build wealth for the future and incorporate it into your financial strategies.
Retirement Income Planning
Work toward a worry-free retirement with a well-planned distribution strategy, where you don’t rely solely on investment income to sustain your lifestyle and allow your portfolio to grow. We’ll also help you plan for required minimum distributions (RMDs) to shield your retirement savings from potential tax penalties. By following a comprehensive distribution plan, we can help you achieve peace of mind and the retirement you deserve.
Financial planning is about growing your wealth, but insurance planning is about managing it. Insurance planning is a cost-effective strategy to prepare for unexpected events such as the death of a loved one, the need for long-term care, or a disability. Depending on your personal situation, there may be strategies where insurance can help with retirement income, tax benefits, or estate planning.
Social Security & Medicare Strategies
Understanding your Social Security benefits is crucial when pursuing long-term financial stability. With our professional guidance, we’ll help you understand the features of different claiming strategies and develop a personalized plan that integrates your Social Security income with your overall financial picture. We’ll also educate you about Medicare programs so that you can make informed decisions about your healthcare.
Estate Preparation & Legacy Planning
Estate and legacy planning involves the process of deciding how you want to distribute your wealth and assets among your family and loved ones after you pass away. We’ll help you determine the right questions to ask to make sure your family and community are taken care of.
Seeking a tranquil path toward the financial well-being of you and your family.
As an independent RIA and a fiduciary, we always focus on what works best for you and your family. We are not stockbrokers, market-timers, or stock pickers, and we do not chase yesterday’s winners.

Let us help lead you toward true financial peace of mind in retirement by creating a financial road map that addresses your goals and dreams.

We have been with Tranquility Path Investment for several years now, and it’s one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
I had recently retired and was at a complete loss as to what to do with my small retirement funds. My husband and I were introduced to Henry Zupko and his wife by close friends of ours, and we shared a table with them at an event we attended. Henry was gracious and professional, and so we made our first appointment to see him. Through our partnership, we watched our investments grow, which has allowed us to do so many more things that I previously could only dream of, like extensive traveling. Please do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Tranquility; they’re professional, courteous, and easy to work with. They never pressure—just great advice.

Henry’s amazing financial advice, combined with the ability to thrive on my husband’s income, changed our lives.
Because of Henry’s expertise, I was able to retire from a very stressful career as a physician in order to volunteer as a health and education advocate while being available when our youngest child had special needs. Henry’s amazing financial advice, combined with the ability to thrive on my husband’s income, changed our lives. My youngest is now in his fifth year of his Ph.D. at age 23 and has also partnered with Tranquility Path as his financial advisor. Henry has been so helpful that we have referred many others to him. We moved to Washington State over 20 years ago, and Tranquility Path was able to continue advising us, our friends, and the next generation. Henry’s ethics and effectiveness are what had us working with him in the first place and what keep us working with him. We appreciate the comfort and confidence Henry and his team give us during and despite terribly uncertain times!

We decided to seek the help of a new financial advisor when we felt our advisor at the time wasn’t providing adequate or reliable information so that we could retire. Based on a recommendation from our lawyer, we reached out to Henry Zupko. Henry has helped us maintain a budget so we can be comfortable while also traveling and pursuing our hobbies and interests. We’ve recommended Henry to several people, sharing how professional, personable, and astute with financial matters he is—and they’ve all been very pleased with the recommendation.
